It’s not just the inside of the home that should be kept tidy—the exteriors of your house deserve some TLC, too. Your windows, especially, should be ridden of those unsightly streaks and smears. Thankfully, it’s not that difficult to clean your windows. With the help of the right equipment and a cleaning solution you can easily DIY, nice and neat windows are easy to achieve!

Get the right equipment

An important first step to achieving clean, streak-free windows is by having the appropriate equipment. This depends on the kind of windows you have at home, but generally, you need microfiber towels, a squeegee, or a handheld scrubber, as well as a container for your cleaning solution. You may even choose to use a hand vacuum to take away any loose bits of dust and dirt. If your windows are quite high, you may need an extendable pole or a ladder.

Use an effective cleaning solution

You can get a great cleaning solution for cleaning your windows using products you have at home. One effective solution is vinegar and water combined in equal parts. You can also mix dishwashing liquid with water. However, if you prefer to use store-bought products, do your research and find a window cleaning product that will suit your needs.

Get started on your cleaning

Once you have your tools and solution ready, it’s time to get started on cleaning. If you’re using a scrubber or a microfiber towel, simply apply the solution onto the surface of your window and wipe well, making sure to clear out any streaks. If you’re using a squeegee, dip it into the solution, then squeeze out excess water before using it on your windows. Don’t forget to cover every inch of the windows, and to wipe the squeegee every once in a while to remove dirt that may have clung onto it.

Don’t clean when the sun is up

As much as possible, don’t go about cleaning your windows when the sun is up and your window is receiving a lot of sunlight. If it is too hot, your windows will dry too quickly and make it easier to leave smudges and smears on the surface, which is exactly what you want to avoid. Better wait for a cloudy day or for the sun to set before you bring out your tools.
