I've always liked washing windows, especially if they are good and dirty. When I was a kid, I’d grab the spray bottle of vibrant-blue window cleaner and a roll of paper towels and have at 'em. Later, I learned that crumpled newspapers worked better than paper towels and that vinegar diluted with water is an equally effective disinfectant as commercial window cleaner spray. Then I learned the secret to fast, green, and superior home window cleaning: the squeegee.
A squeegee pulls all the water and dirt off freshly washed glass, leaving nothing but the shine. It works with a little natural dish soap in a bucket of water, so using it is very ecofriendly. Squeegeed windows even stay cleaner longer because you aren’t putting a static charge on them that will attract dust and fuzz which is what happens when you clean glass with rags or paper.
So find yourself a sturdy squeegee and follow these simple steps to getting your cleanest windows yet.
