For cleaning window you gave me such a nice tips. Even I always go for homemade cleaner which included vinegar,liquid soap and water, Just mixture of it all and spray it on windows.For window cleaners you need to use extra tools like scrubbing wand,scraper and lint free towels. Collect all tools and wipe the windows very cleanly.

When you are cleaning windows, if not using the streak-free squeegee, wipe up and down on the inside and back and forth on the outside. If there are any streaks you will be able to see which side needs to be redone.

I think cleaning window yourself is better and wise decision to compare than hire a professional service. First of all wipe off excess dirt then use the sprays is to wipe the glass with newspaper.

Windows are the most sensitive part of the cleaning procedure as the chances of scratches or breaking are higher and also noticeable. Nowadays large glasses are being used because of the big windows in multi-storey buildings that requires special care while cleaning.

window cleaning

I use 1 cup water 1 cup rubbing alcohol and I tablespoon vinegar.
I use a T towel and when I wash them I never use softner with them. This really leaves clean windows and works well also on chrome fixtures in the bathroom. I have cleaned houses for 30 years and this is the best I have come up with so far,

Very informative post on window cleaning, Which sounds so difficult as a household activity. That is why i use Janitorial cleaning Supplies to cleanse remotest / sensitive parts, since it is not only user friendly but pretty inexpensive too. Though household remedy is always useful, if anybody got enough time to invest on cleaning.

To clean windows, use a solution of a few tablespoons of Dawn dish soap with about 3 gallons of cold water.

Use an Etorre or Sorbo squeegee, if possible, and you should have a few different sizes. Having A 6",10", and a 14" squeegee works well for residential windows. You'll want an 18" or even 24" if you are doing commercial. Any applicator will do fine, but the squeegees should be bought o line from a window cleaning supply company.

As for techniques, unless you know how to "fan" already, stick to straight pulls from side to side.
Start the side pulls from the top, and go until the very bottom, wiping the squeegee rubber after each pull. Finish by wiping the streaks or drips with a CLEAN towel, or paper towels.

If it you are at a house with storm windows, double-hung combinations, you will need to remove the storms and use mats or towels to place the windows on, lean each window against a wall with towels propped between the wall and the window. Clean each side of the window and then put it back into the window tracts only AFTER you are done with all the rest of the windows.

I personally would recommend subbing the work to a professional company if the house has storm windows.

Get start by washing your window with a sponge. Washing up liquid in warm soapy water will work well but remember - the fewer suds the better. Be alert when using strong window cleaning solutions that they do not damage surrounding paintwork.

Here are a few more tips;
Combine 2 tablespoons ammonia, 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol and 1/4 teaspoon mild non-antibacterial dish washing liquid. Using a funnel, pour the mixture into a rinsed, recycled spray bottle. Then spray it on windows, just as you would commercial glass cleaner, and wipe.
Employing newsprint instead of rags or paper towels will leave your hands dirty but your windows sparkling and lint-free -- cheaply and without streaks. You can also dip the crumpled newspaper directly into a bucket of the homemade cleaner while wearing rubber or vinyl gloves, wipe down the glass with the wet newspaper, and, to finish off, use dry sheets of newspaper to dry and polish the windows.Now that you're an adult, one of those old-fashioned blackboard erasers may once again leave you proud as you look out through crystal-clear windows. After washing and drying your windows with either newspaper, run a clean, dry blackboard eraser over the windows to remove any streaks and give them a diamond-bright shine.
