There’s something that just makes you feel like you’ve got it together about having sparkling clean windows. They’re a pain to clean at times, and even more of a pain to keep clean, (especially if you’ve got children!) but it’s so worth it. Why not take an hour or so out of your Sunday to get those windows sparkling? Here are a couple of tips to save you time and help you do a great job of it!

How to get wonderfully clean windows

Whether you’re a fan of natural cleaning methods or prefer a couple of shop bought cleaners to get the finish you want on your windows, we have a tip for you. Just keep on reading and you’ll have all the knowledge you need for brilliant windows in no time.

Decide on your weapon of choice

Now, we say weapon because sometimes getting your windows to sparkle really is a battle. There are a number of different tools you can use for windows; a regular sponge, a shammy leather, window scrapers – even a hose if you fancy, but we doubt that’s going to get your windows very clean!

What are you going to clean with?

There’s no need to run out and buy every specialised window cleaning solution you can find on the supermarket shelf, oh no. Many people have had great success with a wide range of window cleaning solutions they’ve made up themselves. Some examples of this are:

  • a squirt of washing up liquid in hot water
  • white vinegar in some cold water with a little bit of washing up liquid
  • a combination of white vinegar, lemon juice and cold water

You could play around with combinations until you get the very best for you, or pop out and grab some cleaner ready made. It’s entirely your choice!

Get your technique down

Where many people run across problems when cleaning their windows is in their technique. Balling up old rags or bits of newspaper and frantically rubbing them on your windows isn’t going to get them clean! For super clean windows, make up your cleaning solution, grab a sponge (natural is best, they’re more absorbent and simply do a better job than the synthetic type) and clean over each window. Then, use a squeegee to remove the water and soap from your windows without scratching or damaging them by sweeping across the glass in an S shape, and then horizontally/vertically as required.

That’s all there is to it! Once you’ve cleaned your glass, don’t forget to give your windowsill and window frames a good clean so they match up with your sparkling clean window glass!
