How to clean windows?

For a better environment, view, heat efficiency, professional business image it is necessary to clean windows.
  • Instead of tough chemical sprays, clean your windows with simple solution of vinegar.
  • Mixing up 2 spoons of white vinegar with a gallon of water would give you a better solution. Even you can substitute lemon juice or club soda.
  • To prevent from fog and steam- add a small amount of glycerin, or wash with soap and water.
  • To get streak free results, you can wash windows with squeegee.
  • Wipe down the entire window with soapy water then use the squeegee to wipe the water off.

Thank you so much for the tips.Originally I would just clean my windows with soap and water and wipe them dry with a newspaper but after reading the tips you have mentioned I applied it on the windows of my home and was amazed to see the result. Now my only problem is, how to maintain the wooden frame and keep it looking nice and polished.Any suggestions???

The frame shouldn't be a problem if your using dawn and water. The soapy water runs down onto the frame, so when you're done with the window, you just wipe the frame with a towel and your on to the next window.

A window free of dirt and debris allows for more light to shine through and brighten up the rooms of the house. With right tools, window cleaning is not difficult anymore. All you really need is a squeegee, a window cleaning solution, and a good lint-free towel.

Interesting... though I wouldn't consider this the most professional solution on the market.. there are tools for window cleaning that make our lives much easier. Steel wool - razor blades - and only harsh chemicals if the windows are stained... Squeegee mop, rags, and ladders is the best way in my opinion to get the job done right.

Vinegar will leave streaks. The only I have EVER gotten streak free windows, inside and outside is with a Norwex enviro cloth and a window cloth. Takes seconds for most jobs. If you want the outside done they have a way to attach it to their mop. I cleaned my friends windshield (which he hadn't cleaned IN MONTHS, possibly years) in 3 minutes, streak free, no scrubbing. I hate the smell of everything else and water doesn't have a smell.

If you have wood window frames, vinegar will also destroy the wood.

I don't think vinegar gets rid of anything and the smell is awful.
