How to clean windows

ScS experts stated that there are a few steps that must be followed for the best results.


They said, “To clean your windows, brush off dirt and then apply lots of window cleaning spray, preferably one that sticks to the glass and won’t run.”

To keep windows streak-free, it’s important to wipe off excess product with the right tools.

Making sure the cloth you are using is clean will also remove stains.

“Wipe the panes with absorbent microfiber cloths or squeegees, as they don’t leave any streaks,” the experts continued.

“With plastic blinds, a slightly damp cloth can be used to remove more stubborn stains,” they continued.

“With types of wood, a light cleaning product like diluted detergent can be effective.

“Alternatively, some blinds can go in a washing machine, but always check the label and put them in a zipper bag when you do.”
