If you are a rookie at this, and you have never done it before, don’t worry we will tell you how to clean windows, and how to prevent the appearance of mud mass in future.
Windows Washing: Step-by-step Guide
It has been already a good tradition for Nasiol to share advice and tell readers how nanotechnology, in this case, oleophobic coating, can help us in the home.
Catch our five tips for window washing:
- It’s essential to choose an appropriate day.
The best variant is a dry, cloudy day. Why is it so? If you start to clean windows under the burning sun, you risk getting one more challenge. A cleaner that is dried out on the glass surface means hard-to-remove streaks. So, if the day of window washing is hot and sunny, try to start from the shady part of the house. By the way, you will not have any of these issues if you cover your windows with Nasiol glass water repellent in advance.
- Remove dirt and dust first.
Before you take up a microfiber cloth and a container with the cleaner you should remove any hints of dirt or dust, otherwise, the dirt will mix with water and detergent and become a mess. There are a few ways in which you can do this:
- Use a vacuum cleaner if it has a specialized dusting attachment
- Use hot and soapy water to deal with especially grimy places
If the glass surface was covered with oleophobic coating, in most cases, you should use only two microfiber clothes: the first one should be wet, the second one dry. Just regularly wipe off dust from the glass, and it will look shiny.
- Choose the right cleaner for window washing.
We will not advertise any cleaner or compile their characteristics, all of which you can do yourself. Here, we will share a recipe for glass cleaner that you can make in your kitchen.
- Water – 2 cups
- White or cider vinegar – ½ cup
- Alcohol 70% concentration – ¼ cup
Combine all of the ingredients in a spray bottle. That’s all, now you can get on with the cleaning. Also, keep it away from kids and pets.
We hope that these simple tips will help you, and the primary advice is to use glass water repellent. It releases you from all of these difficulties.
