Despite what many people think, having a clean house doesn’t have to be a Herculean task. The best way to keeping the house clean is by separating the parts that need to be cleaned into smaller tasks and dedicating a day to them. For example, take a day to clean your linens, a day for your furniture, and a day for your windows and mirrors.
Now, imagine that today you decided to clean your windows and mirrors. You’re dealing with glass. This might seem like the most difficult material to clean as it should be perfectly clear and see-through. And if you’ve ever seen a glass window you know stains and dust stick to it.
So today I’m going to explain in very easy steps the best way to have the cleanest windows and mirrors. Now, the first thing you should do is gather your materials. Here’s what you’ll need:
- White vinegar.
- Water (Preferably distilled, not tap)
- A spray bottle or a big bowl
- A microfiber cleaning cloth
- Cotton swabs
- An old newspaper or an old cotton t-shirt
- A few towels
The first thing you should do is scrub the glass with a dry cleaning cloth to remove whatever dust it may have. The dustier side is going to be the one that’s outdoors, obviously. After that, place some towels on the window sills. This is to protect them from the water and vinegar and it is especially important if they’re made of wood.
In the spray bottle or the big bowl mix one part of vinegar and three parts of water and spray it on the glass. Spread the liquid using the cleaning cloth in a circular motion.
Once you have covered the entirety of the surface of the glass with the circular motion now it’s time to switch to vertical strokes. Cover all the class and then switch to horizontal strokes. Repeat the process until all stains have disappeared from the glass. If there’s any particular stain that seems more stubborn than the rest, try using undiluted vinegar on it. Just pour some on the cloth and wipe it off.
Clean the corners of the window using a cotton swab dipped in the vinegar and water solution. Then just finish up by using the old newspaper or cotton t-shirt for an extra scrub. Amazingly, newspaper is what makes glass shine the most.
