Daylight Saving Time is this Sunday! We might lose an hour of precious sleep, but we also gain more warm, sunny rays during the afternoon. Don’t let any of that natural light go to waste. Ensure that your windows are clean and spotless with the following tips from the experts.
Avoid Hot, Humid Days
Luckily for Maryland residents, the hottest, most humid days are still far away. Once the winter chill fades away, we’ll have plenty of beautiful spring days to enjoy before summer begins. Experts suggest avoiding exterior window cleaning on hot, sunny days. Cleaning your windows during an especially sunny day will cause the cleaner to dry quickly, leaving unattractive marks on the glass! Once summertime hits, consider cleaning your windows early in the morning or in the late afternoon when the sun is not as severe.
Start with Dirt and Dust
Before you spray window cleaner onto the glass, start with a microfiber cloth or feather duster. Simply brush off the excess dirt and dust to make the cleaning process easier. If your window screen looks particularly dirty, remove it and wash it with hot water and a soft brush. Let it air dry completely before putting it back.
Don’t Skimp on the Cleaner
Once you’ve wiped the excess dust and dirt away from the window, there will still be plenty left that cleaner can remove. Ensure that you have enough cleaner for all of the windows you’re washing. The right cleaner will dissolve the dirt so you can wipe it away easily. If you want to make your own, combine ½ cup rubbing alcohol, ½ cup water, and one tablespoon of vinegar. Place the solution in an empty (and clean) spray bottle and shake generously. Happy cleaning!
