Windows get dirty pretty easily, and cleaning them can be a real pain. One of the biggest complaints that I hear about window cleaning is that most cleaners leave streaks on them. This easy tutorial will show how to clean windows and keep them streak free with a few easy steps!
Having a little puppy means there are lots of little messes. Little Nash is having a lot less “accidents” but loves our front door. He likes looking out, napping by the front door and most of all pawing and nosing at our door when neighbors are out walking. That means there are always smudges on our front door, which drives my cleaning obsessed heart a little crazy. I’ve tried a few different ways to clean windows, including this one using newspapers, but have found a new way (new to me) to clean them and get them streak free! They even seem a little resistant to little nose and paw smudges now!
Exhibit A – Nash pawing at me while I’m outside…isn’t he the cutest?
What You Will Need:
2 Cups of Distilled Water
2 Drops of Dish Liquid ( Purchase HERE )
1 Tablespoon of Distilled White Vinegar ( Purchase HERE )
1 Tablespoon of Isopropyl Alcohol ( Purchase HERE )
Squeegee ( Purchase HERE )
Start by mixing your glass cleaner in a spray bottle. Just add 2 cups of distilled water, 2 drops of dish liquid, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of alcohol together in a spray bottle.
Then, spray the window liberally with the cleaning solution.
Next, I wipe it down with a paper towel.
To finish the window off and get rid of any streaks, I run a squeegee down the window, overlapping each time I get to the bottom of the window and start at the top again.
Between each swipe from top to bottom, I simply wipe the excess vinegar off of the squeegee.
See…all clean and streak free just the way I like them! Now if I could just train Nash to clean windows himself ;)
I hope these tips on how to clean windows and keep them streak free help you clean yours and keep them clean!
