As the weather brightens up, many homeowners may have noticed their windows look a little worse for wear. After months of rain, strong winds, sleet and snow, it’s likely most people’s windows are in need of a thorough scrub. With this in mind, showroom stylist at Express Bi-Folding Doors has shared her tips for cleaning windows so they look crystal clear for spring.
1. Remove the top layer
Rather than starting with soapy water and a cloth, Jade recommended instead starting by vacuuming your windows to remove dust and dirt.
She explained: “For both inside and out, there will be a build-up of dirt on windows all over the home.
“It’s tempting to spray each area with hot soapy water immediately, however, this will make the dust stick to the glass and you’re simply moving it around rather than removing it.
“Use a duster to loosen any dust particles first, and then try gently vacuuming with the bristle attachment to avoid scratching the surface.

“Finally, to get into any tougher nooks and crannies such as the corners and rims, work in a feather duster to manipulate the grime.”
2. Now is the best time to clean windows
Jade said spring is the “optimum time to get the best cleaning results” when it comes to our windows.
Cleaning windows in winter can be frustrating as they often need redoing frequently.
In the summer, direct sunlight can reveal streaks, making the job harder.
She added: “Using an old rag, duster or newspaper will only spread the spots on the glass, whereas a microfibre cloth folded correctly will do the trick.
“Ensure that it’s folded over at least once so no oils from your skin make their way through the material and smear on the glass.
“The small fibres in a microfibre cloth will absorb whatever they come in contact with.
“Ensure there is distance between your hand and the window by folding the cloth, and scrub from left to right.
“Rubbing in circles will create a static that dust can stick to.”
