Saying goodbye to the opacity and dirt that accumulate on your windows can seem like a Herculean task.
But there's a simple trick that can help your windows shine, while saving you effort. An easy and economical method, revealed by professional organizer Paula Seiton. So, what are you waiting for to brighten up your home with renewed clarity?
A window-cleaning secret revealed
Paula Seiton, a professional organizer, shared this foolproof trick for cleaning your home's windows on her Instagram account. According to her, this method only requires two ingredients that you probably already have at home. The big secret lies in a balanced mixture of water and cleaning vinegar. “Fill half your container with each ingredient,” she advises. However, to apply this mixture to your windows, you'll need a sprayer.
She recommends using “distilled or previously boiled water that contains no impurities” if you plan to keep the sprayer. Once your mixture is ready, simply spray it onto your windows and gently wipe from top to bottom, using even strokes.
Allies for optimum clarity
It's best to use a microfiber cloth specially designed for cleaning glass. These cloths retain dust better and, unlike ordinary cloths, do not disperse it. Ammonia and alcohol can also be great allies in this task. Ammonia, in particular, is a powerful degreaser that can get to grips with the dirtiest windows or those on which grease has accumulated. What's more, like vinegar, ammonia also gives excellent results on mirrors and other glass surfaces. However, it is important to dilute it with water before applying it to the surfaces to be cleaned.
This cleaning secret will help you have effortlessly shiny windows at a lower cost, while enjoying natural air, good ventilation and optimum light in your home.
And there you have it, thanks to this trick, you can say goodbye to fingerprints, street particles, insects and unexplained stains clouding your windows. Make your windows shine and light up your home like never before!
