Use old newspaper when washing your windows. Newspaper won’t put lint on the window, it’s a free item you ‘re about to throw away in your trash and it leaves a free streak shine. Once you’ve used the newspaper on your windows, you can save it and use it to deliver a weed barrier around the house’s exterior portions.
Vinegar is a safe product to use when washing your windows. A lot of the cleaner runs down the side of the house and leaches into the ground when you are cleaning windows. Vinegar is a natural substance which does not harm animals, humans or ground water.
Buy a handle that will stretch for your squeegee so you can do your glass cleaning while standing on the floor. If you don’t have to climb a ladder you don’t want to have to climb up.
