Tips for Cleaning Outside Windows

Dirty exterior windows can detract from the beauty of your home. Use this quick how-to to keep your windows crystal clear:

  1. Mix your cleaning agent. Mix three ounces of dishwasher rinse aid, four tablespoons of isopropyl alcohol, one-fourth cup of ammonia and one-fourth cup of dishwasher detergent.
  2. Add water. Add two gallons of hot water to your mixture.
  3. Spritz your windows. Use a spray bottle to spread your mixture onto your windows.
  4. Scrub with a long-handled brush. Submerge a long-handled brush in your window wash and scrub down your windows.
  5. Rinse your windows. Use a hose to rinse away your mixture.

How to Clean Interior Windows

Clean interior windows improve the appearance of your home. Here are three easy cleaning solutions:

  1. Vinegar spray. White distilled vinegar in a spray bottle is a simple way to clean windows.
  2. Windex. Windex will also remove dirt and grime with a streak-free shine.
  3. Bleach and water. Bleach and water is a powerful dirt and grime fighter. Avoid using too much bleach. Bleach-heavy mixtures can damage paint.
