One day, standing behind your window, looking at the sunset (only for the most lucky of us, you can also look at your kids playing in the garden!), you just realize that your windows are really dirty. You think it’s high time to wash them, because you have not done a home clean in a long time.
To clean your windows in your home, it’s better to buy the appropriate cleaning products and equipment as opposed to just using a duster and some water. These products and equipment are available for everyone and not exclusive to the professionals you see at the top of the huge buildings. You can buy these items on the internet or at a DIY store, in the housekeeping section. Items recommended for the effective cleaning of your windows:
- 2 squeegees: one small (0.2m) and one bigger (0.4m) and also rubbers for a possible replacement;
- A cleaning sponge you will use especially for housekeeping;
- A bucket;
- A towel (you can also use a linen you have at home);
- A liquid soap for washing;
- A ladder if you have high windows.
Let’s start the home cleaning with your windows! Mix two caps of the liquid soap for washing in a bucket with water. You can look at the label on the liquid soap bottle to see the good proportions. Soak the sponge in the water and wash the window. Start at the top of the window and then finish at the bottom. Then take the squeegee at the top of the window and finish at the bottom without stopping. Use your towel or your linen to remove the water on the squeegee. In general, try to clean the dirtiest side of the window in first: most of the time it is the outside of the window. This is a good start because even if this is a small part of home cleaning, when you come from the outside and see that all the windows are clean, it is difficult to think that it’s not the same inside the house!
