Cleaning Tips to Achieve Crystal-Clear Windows

Nothing beats the view out of a clean, clear window. Whether you have a simple sliding window or a set of unique custom windows, knowing how to properly clean your windows will be extremely beneficial.

There’s more to keeping the glass surface of windows free of oil and grime than simply wiping them off. Today, Renewal by Andersen® of Oklahoma shares a few tips and tricks for cleaning up replacement windows.

How’s the Weather?

You want to choose a day that’s a little bit overcast to clean your windows properly. Bright sunny days aren’t good for window cleaning because the sun can dry the window cleaning solution before you have a chance to wipe it off. This will result in unsightly streaks that are even harder to get rid of.

Dry Cleaning

Start by using a soft-bristled brush or a vacuum cleaner to remove any dust or dirt on the surface of the glass. Dust often ends up becoming a muddy mess when mixed with liquid, so you want to ensure it’s been wiped away before you wipe down the windows with a cleaning solution.

Choosing the Right Products

You don’t want overly diluted products that slide down the pane after the first spray. This is especially important in window styles that have large expanses of glass like picture windows. You can also make a simple solution of water and 70% rubbing alcohol, adding in just a bit of vinegar.
