Method 1: Traditional Solution

Ingredients:

  • Warm water
  • Mild dish soap or liquid detergent
  • White vinegar
  • Microfiber cloth or sponge
  • Squeegee
  • Bucket

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the cleaning solution by mixing warm water with a few drops of mild dish soap or liquid detergent in a bucket.
  2. Add a splash of white vinegar to the solution. Vinegar helps to cut through grease and grime, leaving your windows sparkling clean.
  3. Dip a microfiber cloth or sponge into the solution and wring out any excess liquid.
  4. Start washing the window from top to bottom, ensuring thorough coverage.
  5. Once the window is clean, use a squeegee to remove excess water. Begin at the top and work your way down in a single, smooth motion.
  6. Wipe the squeegee blade with a clean, dry cloth after each pass to prevent streaks.
  7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each window, rinsing the cloth or sponge and refreshing the cleaning solution as needed.

Method 2: Homemade Vinegar Solution

Ingredients:

  • White vinegar
  • Water
  • Spray bottle
  • Microfiber cloth or newspaper

Instructions:

  1. Fill a spray bottle with equal parts white vinegar and water. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and helps to dissolve dirt and grime without leaving streaks.
  2. Spray the solution generously onto the window surface, ensuring complete coverage.
  3. Allow the solution to sit for a few moments to loosen any stubborn dirt or residue.
  4. Wipe the window clean using a microfiber cloth or crumpled newspaper. Both options are excellent for achieving a streak-free finish.
  5. For best results, work in small sections and use a circular motion to remove any remaining dirt.
  6. Buff the window with a dry microfiber cloth to reveal a sparkling shine.
  7. Repeat the process for each window, reapplying the solution as needed.
