The glass surfaces are the easily overlooked when it comes to house cleaning. The last thing you want is for your clean home to be marred by smears on your glass tabletops and windows, so it’s important to learn the best way to clean glass for a streak-free shine.
We are listing a few ways from cleaning services in Overland Park that can come for your help in cleaning the glass surfaces in the most efficient way:
Do-it-yourself Streak-free Window Cleaner
There is no better way than using a streak-free window cleaner in cleaning glass windows. You can use a commercial cleaner, however, some store-brought solutions actually leave residue behind. We are listing three cleaning solutions, choose any one and mix it in a large spray bottle and get ready to clean:
- Equal parts distilled white vinegar and water
- Two tablespoons of ammonia and two quarts of warm water
- Two tablespoons of dishwashing liquid and two quarts of water
Cleaning Tabletops and Glass Windows
After you’ve prepared your steak-free window cleaner, decide on which cleaning tool you’ll be working with. The best way to clean glass windows or tabletops is by using either a coffee filter or a microfiber cloth. In the end, using microfiber cloths or coffee filters is a bit easier and yields more or less the same streak-free shine a properly wielded squeegee would.
Simply mist your tabletop or windows with your homemade cleaning solution. Start at the top and work your way down to the bottom for windows. Gently wipe the solution from the glass with your coffee filter or microfiber cloth after you mist. Switch out your filter or cloth wipes for fresh wipes if they get too damp.
Moderation is key when it comes to washing windows and other glass surfaces. You are going to get streaks if you spray too much of your cleaning solution on the glass which can be attributed to the fact that overspray of solution has to go somewhere, and your coffee filter or microfiber cloth won’t be able to absorb all of the liquid. As a result, you’ll end up smearing the cleaning solution — along with dirt and dust — all over the window, rather than wiping it away from the glass.
After you’ve finished, in order to be certain there aren’t any remaining smudges, give windows and glass surfaces a once over. If there are, quickly buff them out using a dry coffee filter or microfiber cloth.
