As we turn the calendar to March and cold winter weather slowly begins to make its way out, it’s time to think about tackling some spring cleaning around your home. Cleaning your windows is an important part of your checklist. Here are some tips on how to deep clean your windows this spring, so they are beautiful and dirt-free.
First, dust your window blinds or remove your drapes or window coverings to clean them. Doing this before you start cleaning the windows is key. That way, dust and other debris won’t accumulate on already clean windows.
Next, open your windows and take out the screens. You can wash the screens with soapy water, and then let them air dry. While you are doing that, wash the window glass on both sides, if possible. Regular glass cleaner, or a mixture of vinegar and water are the best ways to get sparkling windows. Paper towels are a great option. But, if you have a microfiber cloth or a squeegee, you may have better luck in keeping the windows streak-free.
While the windows are open, take a close look at the window tracks. Chances are, there is dirt and maybe even a few dead bugs or flies that have met their fate there. Take a handheld vacuum or a vacuum attachment, then vacuum the window tracks.. Next, wipe out the inside with a detail brush or a paper towel.
