Tips for clean windows
- Use any of paper towels, cloths, lint-free materials etc with homemade cleaners! Combine 2 tbsp of ammonia or white vinegar and 2 qt of warm water. You can also try ½ cup ammonia with a pint of 70% rubbing alcohol and 1tsp of liquid dish detergent, place in a gallon container and fill with water. Another effective option is 1 tbsp dishwashing liquid and 1 qt water. Another site claims 2 cups of water plus ¼ cup white vinegar and ½ tsp of dish detergent works wonders.
- Try using an old t-shirt or sock to clean windows. They leave very little lint!
- ‘Hard’ paper towels do better than soft ones—less lint.
- Here’s one everyone has heard of: newspaper. Find some packing newspaper (no print) for a streak-free shine. This one’s floated around the internet for years!
- Avoid cleaning windows in direct sunlight: direct sunlight can dry the cleaner before you can remove it, causing streaks!
- Rinse outside windows with clean water before applying the cleaner. This leads to less cleaner being used and the cleaner is more effective.
- Window washing squeegees can reduce streaks more than paper towels, newspaper, or cloth if you get the right one.
- To repel dirt you can apply floor wax to your windows. This will work in a similar way to our wax additive but the application can be tricky and messy.
