1. The vinegar method
One of the easiest – and most environmentally sound – ways to clean your windows is by using good old white vinegar and water. It’s non-toxic and naturally sourced. Make your own cleaning solution by mixing 50 percent vinegar and 50 percent water in a spray bottle. Spray your window, let it sit, then grab a microfibre cloth and give everything a good wipe. If there are still streaks, flip your cloth to the other side and give it a second going-over. How easy was THAT?
2. Glass cleaner and a squeegee
This method is particularly good if your windows are extra streaky. Simply spray your chosen window cleaning solution onto your glass – we’re using Glitz Glass Cleaner, one of the best brands out there – and leave for a few moments. Grab a squeegee and drag across your window from top to bottom. Leave to dry for a bit and it should be streak free and sparkling clean.
3. Using a window vac
This method is for all of you who love a gadget – in this case, the Karcher Window Vac! Spray on your window cleaner, use the squeegee attachment and give it a good scrub. After you’ve done this, you’re ready to vacuum the extra water off – voila!
4. Newspaper and water
From the super high tech, to the super LOW tech – the good old newspaper and water method! Simply spray on some clean water or window cleaner, and then use a scrunched-up piece of newspaper to wipe away the dirt. It might sound basic, but it works a treat! And it’s a great way to make your windows sparkling clean and streak-free.
5. Admire your handiwork!
Heck, while you’re there, gaze adoringly at yourself in the window’s reflection – a job well done!
