Window cleaning is a simple operation, but also a very complicated one! There are numerous products or services for cleaning glass, chemical, natural or mechanical. We will show you all the ways!
Window cleaning with chemical methods
The classic way to clean the windows is with glass spray or with ammonia and water. Just get a rag, cloth, or absorbent paper, spray the chosen product on the glass and pass several times until the glass is completely free of streaks.
The advice is to use new microfibre cloths or cotton rags, otherwise unsightly lint may remain on the glass surface. Don’t forget to wipe the windows with a dry cloth as well to give a touch of total cleaning to the entire window!
Window cleaning with natural methods
For those who absolutely do not want to use chemicals, there are numerous natural alternatives. A mixture of white vinegar and water is the best and also the cheapest solution. Just fill a spray bottle with a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water, preferably hot, and spray it on the surface of the glass, or simply wipe with a cloth moistened by the solution and then dry everything with a rag or microfiber cloth.
Clean the windows with mechanical methods
Cleaning the windows with newspaper: This is a method that always leaves you a little perplexed the first time you use it, but it will have an effect that will leave you amazed!
First, wipe with a damp cloth of plain water or mobilize the water directly on the glass and then dry with crumpled newspaper sheets. If you prefer a better result, you can add a cap of ammonia or alcohol to a basin of water.
Windows cleaning with a squeegee:
This is the method most widely used by cleaning companies for large windows.
The procedure is simple:
Dip a sponge in a container full of water and a product of your choice (dish soap will be fine!) And, after squeezing it, wipe it over the entire surface of the glass. Now take your squeegee and pass it by pressing it on the surface of the glass to make it adhere well. It is good practice to start from the edges towards the center, remembering to wipe your squeegee with each wipe so as not to rewet the glass. Now you just have to wipe the edges of the window with a dry cloth and give it a general check again.
