The rainy days may have been great fun but now that the drizzling has been a tale of past, look around at the windows to witness the dirt and grime that has accumulated. However, it is not as hard as it seems and following are some instructions that would help you get clean and sparkling windows.

What You Should Do

The first thing one should consider while cleaning windows is to opt for a microfiber cloth or towel because it is softer and not harsh to be used on the glass. It is preferred to soak the towel in warm water prior to cleaning as this adhere dirt and grime better than dry cloth. Another alternative is sponge; which is easier to use and is cheaper. Sponge is also long-lasting and has a supreme absorbable quality. Newspaper is also another choice which is dense and does not leave a scratch behind. However, whatever the medium may be, it is recommended to first wipe the windows in circular motion and then in lines to get proper results.

What You Shouldn’t Do

One thing that nearly every person uses to clean the windows is either a cloth rag or paper towels and both of these should never be used.
