How and with what to wash windows

In the spring, especially before Easter, Ukrainians are accustomed to doing a thorough cleaning. They tidy up not only inside the house but also outside, making sure to wash the windows.

Some products should not be used for window cleaning, such as baking soda, solvents, abrasives, pure alcohol, and products containing gasoline. OBOZREVATEL has figured out how to clean windows from the outside and when to start the cleaning process.

The easiest way to clean windows is to use a store-bought glass cleaner and microfiber cloths. Dampen the first cloth with water and remove the layer of dirt and dust that has accumulated over the winter. Then, clean the glass with a specialized cleaning agent. Use the second dry cloth to wipe the windows again.

If you live in a high-rise building on the upper floors and are afraid of heights or just concerned about your safety, you can use magnetic sponges to clean windows. This modern cleaning tool significantly simplifies the process of cleaning glass. Alternatively, you can purchase a special sponge with a long handle. Start by washing the windows from the inside, as it will noticeably improve the removal of street dirt.

The most favorable weather for washing windows comes in April. At this time, there is usually no snow left on the roofs, which can drip down and recontaminate the glass.

It's worth noting that there is one very useful and effective life hack for cleaning windows. You'll need vinegar, a paper towel, and a newspaper. First, clean the glass from dust by wiping it with a paper towel. Then, take a spray bottle and create a simple solution by mixing water and white vinegar in a 2:1 ratio. It's important to use white vinegar because it leaves no residue. The acids in the vinegar will quickly break down dirt and grease stains on the glass. The rigid structure of the newspaper will help wipe the glass without streaks. Crumpled pieces of paper will leave lint and streaks. Alternatively, you can use a microfiber cloth.
