Tips for streak free windows

by Kristina Mortimer-Bale, Sep 2017

Want your windows and mirrors to be streak free?

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’s amazing what a difference this one simple tool makes on glass. Having to rewipe areas of glass is a guarantee that you’ll have streaks. Using a squeegee makes it effortless to polish each section of the window. A long handled squeegee is a must if you’ll be doing tall windows, and it will do double duty in cleaning shower walls as well.

     

    Wash windows on a cloudy day.

    Clean corners with cotton swabs.

    Try an old t-shirt.

    Try washing windows with an old worn t-shirt. Old t-shirts won’t have any lint residue and they are just absorbent enough to get a window polished.

    Avoid woodwork.

    Be careful not to allow drips onto the wood that can damage these surfaces. Avoid spraying too much cleaner at once. Instead, spray the window in small sections 

    Use newspapers, or don’t.!

    There are many people who love to use newspapers to polish their glass surfaces. It does work and can work well, but many people don’t like getting newsprint on their hands. The newspaper also doesn’t hold up very well when it gets wet. But it’s worth giving it a try.
