A SolarFrame Top Tip; How to best clean windows

Now spring has finally sprung, the sun light on your windows may be showing up streaks and dirt; and even a little muck can affect how much light shines into your home. At SolarFrame we recommend giving your windows a deep clean two or three times a year, inside and out.

What you need:

  • Window cleaning spray or hot, soapy water (washing up liquid does the job nicely)
  • A sponge
  • A squeegee
  • A clean soft cloth or an old t-shirt will suffice.

Preparing to clean:

  • Remove plants, picture frames etc from the windowsill, take down blinds and curtains (or tie them back).
  • Wash dirty windowsills.
  • Apply the cleaning spray liberally or the hot soapy water, was your windows with the sponge.
  • Use your squeegee to remove excess water. Start at the top of the window. Remember to wipe the squeegee blade regularly to keep it clean.
  • Use your cloth or old t-shirt to remove any remaining water/cleaning spray from the window, working from the top in small circular strokes.

DIY cleaning spray

A simple homemade cleaning spray will do as good a job as many branded sprays. Just mix one-part white vinegar to one part water. Add a small squirt of washing up liquid if your windows are particularly dirty.
