RL Tips: Cleaning Windows
After the revelry, it’s time to schedule the general cleaning of your home. Don’t neglect your windows and keep them spotless with these handy hints
Cleaning your windows may not be one of the tasks that you look forward to doing, but it is as important as decluttering your space. With the recent New Year celebration, firecracker smoke and debris may have been stuck on your window, along with dust and dirt. Get ready to face the cleaning challenge with these tips and the right set of materials.
- Spray the multipurpose cleaner on the windowsill and wipe it using a microfiber cloth.
- Spray the glass or multipurpose cleaner on the glass window. Using a microfiber cloth, wipe it down in an S motion from left to right. If a microfiber cloth isn’t available, use the blank-and-white page of a newspaper.
- Do the same for the exterior side of your window.
RL Tip: You can also use a squeegee to clean your glass windows.
- Remove the screens of your windows. Lay them down on your garage and wash off loose dirt with a hose.
- Prepare a soap and water solution. With a soft-bristled brush, scrub dirt from the screen using the solution.
- Rinse using the hose and let dry.
- Using a feather duster, dust off loose dirt and particles from the wrought iron grilles.
- Wipe the grills with damp cloth. Most wrought iron grilles have intricate curves and elaborate design elements. Make sure you reach those tiny curves and corners as well.
RL Tip: You can use a damp rug when cleaning your grilles. Use a solution of mild soap and water. Avoid using abrasive cleaners to keep your grilles from rusting.
