Tools Required for Shinier and Sparkling Windows

Window cleaning may seem overwhelming but to get the task done right without any damage, you need to equip yourself with basic tools and equipment which are listed below:

  • Scrubber
  • Bucket
  • Hand/Dishwashing Detergent
  • Small towels
  • Rugs

Once you have gathered the necessary supplies, it's time to start with the task. According to the experts offering House Cleaning in Kew, the best natural homemade solution to clean windows is to add a few gallons of water and a tsp of dishwashing liquid in your bucket. As an alternative, you can also use vinegar and water. In case you are washing windows in freezing cold weather, it's better to add windshield solution to ensure water doesn't freeze on the window surface. Now whether you will use scrubber or sponge that entirely depends upon your choice. If your window surface has accumulated heaps of dirt, grime, grease or stains, it's better to use a scouring brush to remove them from the surface. However, if you have a preference for mild wash, a good-quality sponge can serve the purpose.

  • Scrub the Window Surface

The first and foremost step is to scrub the window surface with a scour brush and mild dishwashing liquid. Start from any edge and gently scrub the windows clockwise and anticlockwise. Both horizontal and vertical strokes can work to channelize excess water towards the untouched surface.

  • Use Squeegee to Clear off Streaks
