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.
