As the holidays draw near, you might notice areas of your home that could use a good clean before guests arrive, such as your windows. Aside from making your home look more attractive, clean windows also allow more natural light into your home, which can help lower your monthly energy bills.
Read this post for some handy window cleaning tricks from Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod.
1. Wait for a Cloudy Day
It may seem counterintuitive, but window cleaning is not something you should attempt on a sunny day. The sun can cause the cleaning solution to dry on the window before you have a chance to wipe it off, resulting in unsightly streaks that are difficult to remove.
2. Use Shaving Cream
Did you know shaving cream can be used to clean your replacement windows? Apply some saving cream on the dirty glass or hinge, let it sit for 30 minutes and wipe it clean.
3. Water, Vinegar and Dish Soap
Mix some water, vinegar and dish soap to create the perfect formula for window cleaning. Remember to be careful with the amount of each ingredient. A good ratio between these ingredients is one-part vinegar for every two parts water, and then pour a few drops of dish-washing soap.
