Keeping your windows shiny

If your home possesses a lot of windows, you may find your current challenge is keeping them shiny.  Having bright or glossy windows is always nice when it comes to the appearance of your homes but you most definitely have to maintain this look.

It’s so very easy to just spray on the Windex but then you get possible streaks.  It’s also easy to just use soapy water but yet again streaks and possibly a grimy and faded look.  It’s worth the effort to keep them looking great but how can it be done and effectively?

  • Vinegar poured on a dry cloth helps remove spots, stains, and mineral deposits.
  • Alcohol and sudsing ammonia mixture about 1/2 cup and 2 cups (alcohol), makes a great overall cleaning solution for your windows.  Wash from side to side.  The rubbing alcohol helps prevent streaking.
  • A chamois will effectively dry your windows without any dirty build up.

And there you have it, shiny windows!  Doing this once a week will keep a nice appearance to your windows.  Your windows could potentially be the shiniest in the neighborhood!
