It’s a warm but cloudy day outside, so you decide to clean your windows. You grab some Windex and an old newspaper, just like your old man taught you. You start wiping away, and you surprise yourself with what a great job you’re doing. You finish up after an hour’s work and those windows are looking immaculate. You head inside, grab a drink and head back out to admire your work and, what do you know, they’re completely streaked.
Why, why, WHY does this always seem to happen, no matter how careful you are with your window cleaning? Well, we’ve got the right bunch of legends to answer that question for you. Here, the pros at Reliable Window Cleaning tell you how to get streak-free windows, so that you never experience that post-window-clean facepalm ever again.
Use distilled water
Ever walked past distilled water in the supermarket and wondered what on earth people use it for? Well, it can be good for cleaning windows if you know what you’re doing. Hard water that comes out of the tap can often have minerals like magnesium and calcium in it, contributing to the streaks that you’re so annoyingly familiar with. Distilled water, on the other hand, doesn’t contain any minerals, leading to a crisper finish.
Avoid paper towels
Not only are paper towels kind of wasteful and unsustainable, they’re also poor for cleaning windows. So, if you’ve ever wanted an excuse to get rid of the paper towels, now’s your chance! Paper towels are renowned for leaving those little, lint-covered streaks which make your windows look terrible and actually make it harder to clean off next time. They’re basically your windows’ worst enemy. Instead, opt for a nice microfibre cloth to wipe your windows down, or you can also go for the old-man method of newspapers. While they’re not exactly cutting-edge technology, they’re not too bad as a cleaning tool.
Buff it out
Nope, we’re not talking about the rainbow wheel of death on your MacBook, or getting buffer at the gym – we’re talking about buffing your windows to finish off the job. This can be done with a car chamois that’s clean and dry.
