Summer is finally here, and with it brings a host of fun times with family and friends. Keeping glass clean around your home during this time can be a challenge unless you have the correct tools and methods to achieve streak-free windows and mirrors. There's also a bit of an art to glass cleaning, from the direction you wipe dirt away to the type of material you use to clean glass. Discover below the tricks you can use to keep your home's glass clear and sparkling, inside and out.
Clean from top to bottom
If you really want your glass to be streak free, clean from the top to the bottom. Because the cleaning solution can drip, use gravity to your advantage and let the cleaner drip into areas you haven't washed yet. Begin at the top and work your way down to make sure that no drips will happen on the glass surfaces that are already perfectly cleaned.
Use a Squeegee
It is amazing what a difference this one simple tool makes on glass surfaces. Sometimes the first wipe of the cloth doesn't remove all of the cleaning solution and having to re-wipe areas of glass is a guarantee that you'll have streaks. Using a squeegee, however, makes it effortless to polish each section of the window. A long-handled squeegee is a must if you will be doing tall windows, and it will do double duty in cleaning shower walls and doors as well.
Clean Corners With Cotton Swabs
No matter how hard you try, residue seems to build up in the corners of the glass, and it can be very difficult to get to that residue unless you have the right tool. Cotton swabs are ideal for cleaning those hard to reach areas of the windows in your home. It's the perfect size and does the trick!
