Windows with clear, sparkling, and streak-free glass are a joy to look at.
Whether you’re an apartment dweller or the resident of a palatial house, cleaning your home’s windows can be made easy with the right glass cleaning products.
These products should be safe, first and foremost, and are not harmful to your health.
You also need to know about the hazardous chemicals or toxic substances contained in the products which you may inhale or have contact with through your skin accidentally.
Use the correct solvent to reduce the residue or streaking and prolong the period until the glass has to be cleaned again.
The type of glass cleaner you choose is determined by the kind of glass you have.
There are glass cleaners for general purpose uses and heavy duty tasks.
Still, there are environment-friendly glass cleaners for those who prefer their cleaning agents chemical-free.
Use paper towels instead of cloth towels to clean glass.
The latter tends to leave dust behind and make it more difficult to clean glass more quickly.
Towels pre-soaked with cleaning agents are convenient to use since you just wipe the glass surfaces to be cleaned with them.
Use cotton swabs dipped with distilled white vinegar to reach the dust or grime that may be lodged in corners of glassed items.
Applying the cleaner to warm glass on windowpanes means they will enable the cleaner to dry faster than usual and leave streaks.
Clean glass windows on overcast days as well as days with a temperature of 70°F or 21°C.
Never use glass cleaning products that contain ammonia.
This chemical may work wonders for your kitchen floor but will not be so kind to your car and your health as well since it releases hazardous fumes that can make you cough or light-headed.
Ammonia will destroy the window tint of your car by drying out the thin film of plastic that covers your car’s windows.
Get a cleaner that says “tint safe” on its label.
Exchange a dry cloth for the wet one you use to clean the car’s windows to keep streaks off.
Choose lint-free microfiber towels with 300 GSM which can hold up their weight up to eight times in water.
They will not cause scratching on your car’s windows.
Old socks, t-shirts, and face towels are not good choices to clean your car’s glass windows because they will scratch them and cause missed spots and streaks.
The same goes for crumpled newpapers, and magazine and telephone directory pages.
Clean your car’s rear-view mirror and windows after you have cleaned your car’s entire interior to avoid stray spray.
Don’t overlook to use glass cleaning products on the small edgings at the car windows’ tops since this area accumulates dirt in its rubber lip.
Roll down each of your car’s windows to clean this particular area on both exterior and interior glass
