Tips to Properly Clean Your Glass Surfaces

Cleaning is mostly about using the right type of product. The upkeep of glass surfaces is not easy as different substances can lead to different outcomes. Let’s look into a few tips:

• The right rags

Microfiber or paper cloth will effectively clean glass. Special wood rags can also be used to clean glass without streaks. Do not use plain cotton towels as these will leave lint behind, affecting the beautiful finish. Old newspapers can also be used as it will leave glass clean and sparkling.

• Chemicals

Various chemicals can be used for cleaning glass surfaces. Spray chemicals are very effective and don’t need any specials mixing. You can go for hot soapy water for cleaning glass surfaces to save money. You can also add a little vinegar to the water to give the glass shine.

• Extendable cleaners

Cleaning the inside of windows is easy compared to scrubbing the outside. You can go for special tools that feature telescoping handles. With a squeegee on one side and a soft scrubber on the opposite side, these tools are perfect for cleaning windows outside. Spray the scrubber with the solution and clean your window. You can remove the cleaner with the squeegee.

• Cleaning streaks

You can solve the confusion of finding streaks by going in different directions on the back and front of the glass. Try side-to-side motions on the front and use on down and up motions in the back. You can easily determine where the streaks are when the glass dries up.
