How to clean your windows with natural products

Window cleaning benefits any house. Not only does it help make the house’s appearance more aesthetically pleasing, it also helps remove grit and grime that builds-up on both the inside and outside surfaces.

When hiring the professionals to come make your windows sparkle, it’s important to ask what types of chemicals are used during the cleaning process. Many companies will clean with eco-friendly materials upon request.

Cleaning solutions can also be made at home with ingredients found in many kitchens.

Vinegar: Many people already know that vinegar is a popular agent used in most cleaning solutions. It has the ability to make windows shine. You can create your own cleaner by combining 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of soap and 2 cups of water in a spray bottle.

Water: A natural cleaning solution is plain water and a microfiber cloth. The microfiber glass cleaning cloth will leave your windows streak free and costs a fraction of most cleaning agents. These fiber clothes can be reused and can be washed and dried. Plain old tap water can be a wonderful cleaning agent all by itself.

Club soda: While it’s not the most conventional-sounding cleaning solution, the combination of club soda and water easily gets windows clean. The acid in the club soda helps dissolve dirt and grime, which will leave you with glistening results.

Lemons: Many cleaners have lemon scent in them. What most people do not realize is that lemons can clean many things. Take two large lemons and squeeze out the juice. Pour it into a spray bottle, and then fill the bottle with vinegar and water. This is a cleaner that can also tackle more than just windows but also shower doors.
