How-To Clean a Window Like a Professional
1. Make your solution
Mix water and a generous amount of dish soap together in any sort of container. You will need at least a gallon of solution to clean all the windows on your house.
2. Wet the window
Using a soaked rag, wipe down the window with your solution making sure to get all corners + edges.
3. Razor (Non-Tempered windows only)
Using a single razor blade, scrape off all tough dirt. For tempered window use a sponge instead of a razor.
Re-wet the window using your soaked rag.
Starting at the top of the window, place your squeegee flush with the glass and move downward. Repeat where you left off at the top of the window until all water has been removed.
Using a COMPLETELY DRY rag, use your finger to carefully remove excess moisture from the remainder of the window-- especially the edges. Always making sure to use a dry piece of rag.
