You give your windows a quick cleaning, but over time you notice they aren't looking as nice as they used to. The tracks are a perfect place for dirt, grime and even mold to build up. The window glass just never seems perfectly clean and streak free.
You don't need a professional window cleaner to achieve flawlessly beautiful windows. Using these seven tips frequently will allow you to quickly wipe your way to window glass that lets the sun shine in flawlessly.
Deep clean window tracks (h/t The Intentional Mom)
If it's been a while since you've given the windows a really good cleaning, you may have a mess in the window tracks. White windows will especially reveal how long it has been between cleanings. The secret to speeding up the process is to use the technique shown in the video below.
Use a toothbrush to get into all the small spaces (h/t Mom4Real)
The bristles on a toothbrush fit perfectly into all the cracks and crevices in window tracks. Check out how this works with the video below.
Clean bathtub grime
If your tub is suffering from grime, instead of buying expensive store-bought products, try the solution below. It uses nail polish remover and a kitchen sponge.
Want to make your house smell amazing?
Whip up this mixture to make the whole house smell heavenly. This solution, described in the video below, costs only about 60 cents to make and lasts longer than commercial varieties.
Clean the top of windows with ease (h/t Tidy Mom)
It's not always easy to reach the top half of windows to get them clean. As the video below shows, adding paper towel to a tool normally used to clean floors gets the job done with ease.
Create your own homemade window cleaner (h/t One Essential Community)
All-natural window cleaners are great for your home, your health and the environment, but they don't always work well. This streak-free homemade window spray with all-natural ingredients does the job.
Remove hard water stains from windows (h/t Do It Yourself Divas)
