Window Cleaning Tips for Spring
Nothing freshens your home faster than opening the windows and letting in some fresh air and sunlight. But a winter’s worth of grime may have you ready to close the curtains instead. Take the pane out of window cleaning with our favorite Window Cleaning Tips in this infographic!
Window Cleaning Tips
- Cleaning on Cloudy Days
Sunlight can heat up windows causing cleaners to dry before you have a chance to clean. Don’t waste time or cleaning products battling the sun, choose a cloudy, overcast day to clean instead.
- Pitch the Paper
Paper towels and newspapers contain softening agents, inks, and detergents. As you wet the paper to clean, these additives are transferred to the glass leaving streaks and haze. Microfiber cloths or low-lint cotton cloths work best for cleaning glass. Be sure to start with a clean cloth.
- Skip Soaps & Residues
Soaps, scents, and dyes in common cleaners leave residues on glass. Residues form streaks and attract dust and grime. The Clear Dry Formula of Invisible Glass is free from these streaky additives making window cleaning fast, easy, and truly streak free!
- Pick the Perfect Pattern
Turns out the “wax on, wax off” method isn’t the best option for glass! Avoid wiping glass in a circular motion that can create a static charge attracting dust to the surface. Clean windows in an up-and-down or side-to-side pattern working from the top down.
