What is it about windows that makes them always look streaky, no matter how carefully we work? While we can’t guarantee you’ll love the job any better, these easy tips can help you get a better job done overall, and bring that sparkle back to your windows…

Pick the right time

Many of us clean windows on the hottest days, at the hottest part of the day. This means that the cleaner dries as you work, leaving behind streaks.

Use enough cleaner

Using too little cleaner means that dirt residue gets left behind – you effectively just move the dirt around!

Don’t skip the sill

Windy weather will just blow the dirt straight back onto your clean windows, so don’t forget to wipe (or vacuum) the sill before you start.

Use a special cloth

A cloth packed with lint and pet hair is just going to make it stick to the window! Be sure to polish up the glass when you’re done with a clean, lint-free cloth to ensure you see good results.
