Guys! I’m gonna share a secret, the one thing you can do to improve your homes interior during the winter months, is make sure to give your windows (storms too) a good cleaning before it gets too cold.
Although there are many different brands of window cleaner and a lot of DIY window natural window cleaning recipes, I prefer to use a few spritz’ of Windex with Vinegar. I just discovered it a few years back and it has changed my window cleaning life.
Use the soft side of a sponge to help to knock off stuck on dirt and grime, and eliminate finger prints.
There are as many squeegee methods as the day is long. I like to work top to bottom, left to right. Make sure you have good contact with the blade and pull down at a 45º angle.
It’s imperative that you wipe the blade clean using a lint free cloth between swipes. This will prevent drips or lint from the blade making its way onto your newly cleaned window.
Our house has exterior storm windows which help with drafts in the winter. I like to remove the storm windows first, then move outside to clean the exterior side of the windows. Inside, I’ll clean the interior windows, and then finish by cleaning both sides of each storm window.
