Tips On Cleaning Glass Windows

Ever since I can remember, I have always been enthralled by rainbows.  It’s not everyday I get to see one, so whenever I chance upon one of them rainbows, I almost get teary-eyed and feel a sense of hope and optimism rush through my body.

The last rainbow I saw was a couple of months back, while I was peering out through my friend’s glass windows that ​​Ideal Construction had recently installed in her newly furnished condo unit. Because her windows were immaculately clean, I instantly thought that she hired one of the best cleaning services in Springfield, MO to do her windows. I was pleasantly surprised when she told me that she does all the cleaning herself. If you want to have streak-free glass windows like hers, here are a few tips she shared with me:

Use distilled water.  Little do we know that what’s in our water will surely show on our glass windows.  If you use hard water on glass, you’ll definitely see it leave unsightly marks.  Instead, use distilled water so it’s free from any minerals which may leave ghastly deposits on glass.

Believe that vinegar works.  Your Aunt Mae couldn’t have been more right about the usefulness of this cheap cooking staple.  When mixed in equal parts with water, vinegar becomes an excellent cleaner without the harmful chemicals and hefty price tag.  Simply put your solution in a spray bottle and you’re good to go.

Say no to paper towels.  Sure they come in handy for quick fix ups but you should never use them to clean glass windows.  They leave nasty, linty streaks.  Totally ugly.  Here, it’s best to use a microfiber cloth, a squeegee or a handful of scrunched up newspaper.  Just be sure to wear gloves, as you don’t want all that ink to get on your fingers.

Remember to buff it.  Finish the job with a quick buff.  If you don’t have a microfiber cloth or chamois, you can always use any dependable rag.  Buff over the glass after cleaning, and see the streaks vanish before your eyes.

Try to make it a habit to clean your glass windows before stubborn dirt accumulates.  This makes the job much easier.  Simply spritz, swipe and buff.  Get the right tools, and crystal clear glass windows will soon be within your reach.  Then you can merrily gaze out through your windows, into the sky and chase rainbows like I do.
