Britelite’s Window Cleaning Tips

Here’s some tips on how to keep your windows looking clear and sparkling.

There are hundreds of window cleaning products on the market that all promise perfectly streak free windows. However, we find a simpler solution works a lot better.

There are many old wives tales about the benefits of white wine vinegar and newspaper we don’t think that is the best either.

You will need:

Fill a bucket with water, warm or cold. Squirt a little washing up liquid in the bucket. This can be any brand but, make sure it is not antibacterial, this is known to cause streaks!

Dip your sponge or applicator in the bucket then add a little more washing up liquid to it. Work up a lather with your hands before dipping the sponge/applicator back in the bucket.

Now you can soap up the glass but don’t go all the way to the top, leave a little gap around a centimetre. Then you can take your squeegie and in a sideways motion, start at the top and ‘bring the dry down’ in a zig zag motion. The zig zag may take a few goes to perfect if not horizontal lines will suffice.

Finally give your squeegie a hard flick to remove excess water and move on to the next window.
