5 Window Cleaning Tricks Every Homeowner Should Know

Cleaning your replacement windows can be a tedious business. Fortunately, there are a few tricks to make the process easier and more efficient. Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares some tips below.

5 Window Cleaning Tricks Every Homeowner Should Know

1. Use Two Cleaning Cloths

Delegate separate cleaning cloths for interior and exterior surfaces. This help you prevent smearing grime from a dirty cloth onto your window, making the cleaning process more effective.

2. Liquid Dish Soap Is Your Friend

There’s nothing like liquid dish soap to cut through dirt and grease, while leaving a slippery surface for your squeegee to glide on. If you’re worried about your landscaping or have pets and small children, go for 100% biodegradable dish soap.

3. Natural Cleaners Can Be Just As Effective

As great as commercial cleaners are, natural cleaning solutions can be just as effective. Vinegar contains acid that cuts through grease. It also won’t streak, leaving you with truly clear glass on your replacement windows. We recommend a ratio of 50% water and 50% vinegar.

4. Take a Blade to It

Accidentally got some paint on your window glass? You can use a razor blade to remove it. Just make sure to keep the glass wet and to always use a new blade to avoid scratches.

5. Consider Your Laundry Hacks

Magic erasers designed for easily removing stains on clothing can also be used to remove water stains and silicone caulk.
