The Way to Leave Windows and the Mirrors into Your House and Bathroom Streak-Free

Cleaning your windows and mirrors with spray glass cleaner and paper towels is easy, but stripes are usually left behind. Not only are the stripes unsightly, but also window cleaner sprayed directly onto mirrors can seep in around the edges and damage them. Getting truly streak-free paints and windows is potential; it just requires the right cleansers, tools and time daily. Mixing your own cleaner requires a little more time, but it is well worth it when you find the results.

Mirrors & Indoor Windows

Fill a bucket. Add 1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid. Swish the water to produce suds.

Add 1/4 cup or 4 tbsp lemon juice to the water if cleaning very dirty or filthy mirrors. Soap is enough for most mirrors.

Dip a cloth, such as a microfiber cloth and wring it out.

Wash the mirror together with the cloth. Rinse and wring out the soapy cloth and wash the mirror with plain water.

Dry the mirror by wiping it circles with a ball of paper. Utilize only the black-and-white sections; avert pages.

Wipe the water off horizontally with a rubber-blade squeegee, working round the window from top to bottom. Wipe the blade.

Wipe the windows with the squeegee after wiping . Always start every pass of the blade dry glass to stop streaking, and wipe the blade with a microfiber cloth after every pass.
