How to Clean Your Windows on the Interior and Exterior

To get started, you’ll need a simple glass cleaning solution, which can be made using supplies you probably already have at home. Here are some easy recipes:

Soap Alternative

  • 1 teaspoon liquid soap or infant shampoo
  • 1 quart of water

Vinegar Remedy

  • 1/2 a cup of vinegar
  • 1 quart of water

Keep in mind, some hardware coatings can be harmed by vinegar.

Once you’ve created your solution, follow these steps to properly clean your glass.

  • Rinse the surface thoroughly with clear water.
  • With a sponge, soft brush and your preferred soap or vinegar solution, clean laterally and then vertically while applying even pressure.
  • Rinse right away with clean water (sponging may be useful while rinsing; avoid letting the cleaning solution sit in puddles or dry on glass or frame/sash surfaces).
  • Dry off with a dry, lint-free towel.
  • Repeat the previous steps as required to get clean.
  • Dry the window sill and frame with a different towel.
