Springtime is here, and that means longer days and brighter nights. Why not make the most out of the South Florida spring by giving your windows some TLC? At ASP Windows we know a thing or two about windows – after all, we’re experts in hurricane-resistant impact windows and doors. We want you to enjoy the sun, so here are five spring cleaning tips to make your windows sparkle.
Wait for a Cloudy Day
The best time to clean your windows is when the sun hides behind the clouds. Why? Because when the sun blazes down on your windows, the cleaner may stick and dry to the glass, leaving difficult-to-remove stains. Ideally, you would hope for a dry and cloudy day, but as this is South Florida, a day free from humidity isn’t possible. So, even though the sky is overcast, your windows will shine like it’s the brightest day!
Remove Dust and Dirt First
If you take the time to dust your windows, as well as the surrounding area, you give your windows the best chance to sparkle. This removal process reduces the chance of fine dust particles turning into goop should they fly up and mix with the cleaner.
Choose the Right Cleaner
If you want a deep shine, you need a great cleaner. While there are hundreds of great products available, why not try a homemade glass cleaner instead? Making your own cleaner is simple and can save you money in the long run. All you need to do is mix two cups of water with half a cup of white or apple cider vinegar and half a cup of rubbing alcohol. Once mixed, pour into a spray bottle and spritz your windows generously. Don’t be shy!
Use a Microfiber Cloth
Don’t use paper towels when drying your windows as they may leave trace particles which will keep them from dazzling. Instead, why not try a microfiber cloth? Microfiber cloths are great because they are soft and super absorbent, meaning your windows sparkle without any residue. Even better, they are washable, saving you money over time.
Don’t Forget to Clean Your Blinds
Once your windows sparkle, don’t forget to clean your blinds as well! Fortunately, cleaning blinds is a breeze with a pair of salad tongs. Simply secure a cloth to each side of the tongs and use them to clean two blinds at once!
