Eco-Friendly Spring Window Cleaning Tips

Window cleaning! It has got to be the most time consuming and difficult job; especially if you still have those old-fashioned windows that can’t be pulled down or out for easy cleaning access, but that’s not even the worst part. That honor is saved for that moment when you have finally finished scouring all of those panes outside and tuck away the ladder only to discover upon entering your home that you left thousands of streaks behind to obscure your view! Ugh!

With the arrival of spring, along with it comes that dreaded task we unlovingly refer to as ‘spring cleaning’. It’s that one time a year when we dare converge on each and every corner, nook, and cranny to seek out each particle of dirt, dust, or grime and be rid of it. We even dare venture into those basements, attics, and storage closets that have hardly been touched since last year’s spring cleaning day to see what items we can dispense of that we just couldn’t live without 365 days ago. Once all of these are checked from the list, we pull out the big ladder from the back of the garage and begin the most dreaded task of all – window cleaning! It has got to be the most time consuming and difficult job; especially if you still have those old-fashioned windows that can’t be pulled down or out for easy cleaning access, but that’s not even the worst part. That honor is saved for that moment when you have finally finished scouring all of those panes outside and tuck away the ladder only to discover upon entering your home that you left thousands of streaks behind to obscure your view! Ugh!

One of the best ways that I know of to save yourself from the ‘worst part’ moment this year is to use newspapers. That’s right! Newspapers! Simply mix a solution of 50/50 water to white vinegar. Spray the mixture onto your windows and wipe with a dry cloth. Follow that by wiping the panes with a crumpled up newspaper. Believe it or not, your windows will be so streak free and crystal clear that you will need to install stop signs for the neighborhood birds.
