Essential Window Cleaning Tips

First thing’s first: It’s time to clean the blinds. And cleaning between every single slat used to be tedious work, but it’s not anymore. Try our tongs trick to get them looking like new again.

Next, you’ll need a basic window cleaning solution that really gets results. All the good ones we’ve seen involve vinegar and Dawn dish detergent.

Get in those hard-to-reach window tracks with a sponge brush dipped in Pine-sol. It’ll make the house smell great, and you’ll finally have white window tracks again.

But if your window tracks look more like this (as mine do), it’s time to harness the power of baking soda and vinegar. Let those ingredients do their thing for 5-10 minutes, and the grime just wipes right off.

To get rid of mold on window sills, use a mixture of vinegar and tea tree oil. Put it in a spray bottle, let it sit for about 30 minutes, and then wipe it away.

You’d never guess that Woolite is great for windows, would you? Add 1/2 cup of Woolite to a gallon of warm water, and use a soft car wash brush to clean the exterior windows.

This window cleaner recipe is made with dishwasher detergent, rubbing alcohol, ammonia, and Jet Dry to create a streak-free shine that you won’t be able to stop looking at.

Defuzz your window screens with a lint roller. We don’t have cottonwood trees here, but if you do, this is a handy tip. Our fuzz, unfortunately, comes from an abundance of spiders!

When using a squeegee, wipe it clean with a dry towel every few swipes.

Cloudy days are your best friend when it comes to window cleaning. If you try to clean them on a hot, sunny day, you risk having the cleaning solution dry on your windows, leaving behind an icky residue.

Tip-in windows make cleaning simple… at least on the bottom windows. But how do you get the tops without going outside and climbing a ladder? Why you use this trick! Wrap paper towels around your Swiffer, spray with window cleaning solution and just stick it out the window.
