Cleaning tips for shining windows

I am usually a restless person. I enjoy cleaning the home. My friends call me a clean freak. I love people calling me so. I used to clean my home almost every day to maintain it neatly. It's not because I love cleaning. I am doing this not only because of my passion, but I am also doing this for my family as well. I want to maintain a healthy environment at home. I want my family to stay healthy and disease free. Next month, I am going to see my mother who is ill. I can't imagine the condition of my house while I am away. As my wife is working, she won't able to look after the cleaning services. My kids will find all the possible ways to dirty the house. So I need to arrange somebody to take care of my house after I leave. So I searched and found out a maid cleaning service from Toronto.
Some of the tips I used to do for cleaning the windows and other parts which contain stains are:
1.using of boric powder and water
2.sodium carbonate with cotton
3.use of lime juice to make clean of the windows
I had gone through different online sites and magazines to find out different new methods.
Friends, if you have got any new ideas to share it with us.
Thank You!

You sound like me. Restless and a bit OCD about cleaning. That is why I started my own cleaning service. I am sure you will find someone in your town.

Damn! too much, but still it is all accepted if you can get a shiny window at the end.

Non-toxic streak free window cleaning solution

I know what you mean. This is a non-toxic window cleaning solution that I use:


1 part rubbing alcohol or water
1 part white vinegar
3 drops dishwashing liquid (see Tips below)
Empty spray bottle
Squeegee, microfiber cloth, or newspapers

1. Combine ingredients in a spray bottle and shake gently to mix.

2. Fold a few sheets of newspaper together like a washcloth, or use a microfiber cloth.

3. Spray the glass then wipe.

4. When cleaning framed photos, spray the cloth rather than the glass.

Thank you for these tips! I didn't know that windows can bring so many problems. Okay, I can clean them following your tips but they always break... I have to use windows repair services from this site really often and this is not okay

The best cleaning of the windows could be done just with the help of the cleaning services. There they use the most professional chemical substances and protect the windows with the necessary temperature at washing. But there are cases when people can’t afford it, or just don’t have near their home such a service. Every time I need janitorial services I go to the best ones in my city. There the cleaning is done very well, very quickly, and they offered me a discount too.
