Your home’s windows can get dirty any time of year, meaning you have to clean them every now and then. The winter season is no exception to this rule. In fact, winter seems to be the worst time for windows as not only do they get dirtier during the season, but the freezing temperatures make them harder to clean as well. Thankfully, there is a way around this dilemma.
Melt the Ice
If you live in an area that has snow and ice during the season, it’s likely that ice has formed around your window pane. With that in mind, you need to handle this first before you actually get to cleaning. To do this, simply pour warm water on the pane to melt the ice and eliminate one problem from your task.
Make Your Solution
Once you’ve melted the ice, you can now create your window cleaning solution by mixing water and dishwashing liquid with rubbing alcohol or vinegar to keep the water from freezing. Be sure to use cold or room temperature water instead of hot water as the sudden change in temperature can cause window glass to crack.
Get to Cleaning
After making your solution, you can now use it to clean your windows. Transfer the solution to a spray bottle, and spray it onto the windows before spreading it around with a sponge. Experts recommend sea sponge as it can hold plenty of the cleaning solution and is porous enough to remove stubborn spots. Afterwards, use a squeegee to wipe away any excess water and microfiber towels to wipe your edges and catch drips. Once you’ve done so, you should have a clean window for the winter season.
