The Most Effective Way To Clean Windows Inside And Out

Most people think cleaning a window involves spraying Windex and wiping it down with any cloth they can find. If only cleaning was that easy. To clean windows and get that satisfying smudge-free finish, you need to be equipped with the proper knowledge and tools. So grab your cleaning gear, and let’s make those windows sparkle!

But first, gather your supplies.

  • Microfiber Cloths
  • Spray Bottle
  • Bucket
  • Squeegee
  • Vacuum with Soft Brush Attachment
  • Newspaper (optional)

Prep Party:

Before you unleash the cleaning solution, give your window a quick once-over with your trusty vacuum and soft brush attachment—or a damp cloth. Both work just fine. This will remove any dust, cobwebs, dirt, or rogue Cheerios that may have taken refuge on your windowsill.

Extra Tips and Tricks

  • For those extra-sticky situations, like the fossilized bird droppings, a paste of baking soda and water can be your knight in shining armor. Apply it gently to the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe it clean.
  • Avoid Paper Towels: They can leave lint behind. Stick to microfiber cloths or newspapers.
  • Avoid cleaning your windows on sunny days. The solution will dry up too quickly, leading to streaks.
  • Don’t Forget the Screens: Remove and wash window screens with soapy water.

How to clean inside windows

Usually, for cleaning interior windows, your solution is easy: In a spray bottle, combine ¼ cup of white vinegar (or lemon juice if unavailable) with ½ teaspoon of liquid dish soap. Then, dilute the solution with 2 cups of water and shake that bottle to your heart’s content.

Now that your solution is ready, spray it on the glass and wipe it with a microfiber cloth from bottom to top. The solution will dry pretty quickly, leaving behind a streak-free finish. You can follow up with a squeegee, and for even better results, go ahead and buff the glass with a piece of crumpled newspaper. Old-fashioned? Yes. Effective? Also yes.

You can use the same solution for the windowsills, casing, etc., so long as you don’t live in an antique house with old wood. If you do, then you have to be mindful of the solution you’re using.

How to treat Mold

Keep an eye out for condensation on interior windows to prevent mold growth. If you live in a colder climate, you could see condensation building up when you switch on your heat. Fortunately, you can apply a mold and mildew protectant to your window sills. 

The solve:

  • Start by brushing off as much mold as possible—wear all the appropriate protection!
  • Mix ½ cups of borax to every 2 quarts of water, apply the paste to the mold spot, and let it sit for ten minutes or until the borax dries. 
  • Now, scrub away at the surface using a toothbrush or similar, and then rinse and dry with a paper towel. 
  • Lastly, spray on a mold and mildew protectant to be extra safe.

Repeat this process every few months if you want to prevent mold growth altogether!

Don’t forget, it’s entirely normal for mold to grow there due to the collection of moisture.

How to clean outside windows

Since the exterior windows are exposed to the elements, they’ll be relatively more complicated to clean and require more elbow grease.

The ingredients for the solution are the same. Just bump up the proportions a bit since you’ll need more solutions than before. But don’t go overboard with the dish soap since it’ll leave streaks if you do. Stay around 1 tsp until you confirm it’s inefficient for 1 tbsp.

  • Start by dipping your squeegee in the solution until it’s saturated
  • Then start from the top and work your way down.
  •  Once that’s done, flip the squeegee to its rubber side and repeat.
  •  Pay extra attention to stubborn spots like bird droppings or sap. 

You can pop your headphones on and play your favorite playlist to make the process a little more bearable. 

Second- and Third-story windows

OK, you can purchase one of those extending poles and try your hand at using it, or you could leave it to the professionals.

So, instead of trying to replicate Spider-Man, you could hire a trusted power washing service like Hotshotz Power Wash to get perfect results without any risk of injury.
