A Brief Insight To The Various Window Cleaning Solutions

 Windows get dirty more often than you think and once they do; it is better to clean because it does not take the time for the dirt to stick stubbornly on the glass. For window cleaning, Melbourne is considered the hub because it has so many companies that provide professional window cleaning service. However, there are things that you can do on your own to clean the windows. People run after chemicals and detergents and so many things to clean their windows, but what they do not realize is the fact that they do not need to use all these toxic ingredients. These solutions are made of harmful chemicals and although they may clean the windows, but they can be harmful to the overall hygiene in the house. Using chemicals to clean the windows reduces the environmental performance of the windows and also pollutes the indoor air. The same cleaning can be achieved by many natural products such as lemon juice, baking soda, vinegar and water. These are non-toxic and would never harm the interior of the house. Rather, they ensure that the interior is safe and clean.

Let’s start with water and vinegar. Vinegar is known for its mild acidity and also for its all-round cleaning ability. When mixed with water in one is to one ratio, it becomes a great solution to clean sticky dust from windows. The solution has to be sprinkled on a small area of the window, and warm water has to be applied while scrubbing. If you want to get the best out of this solution, then use a soft cloth or sponge while scrubbing the sprinkled part initially. In the next half, you can apply warm water and scrub with a squeegee. However, you must remember that warm water is essential in this case. It helps to get rid of the streaks and smudges that may be left behind due to the solution. After everything else is done, the window should be cleaned with fresh cold water and dried with a clean cloth.

The next solution would be of water and borax. This is another natural cleaner, and the effects are really commendable. Ideally you should mix two tablespoons of borax in three cups of water. If you want to make the solution a bit thicker, then you can mix it in two cups of water as well. This solution should be used after the application of vinegar and water solution. This brings back the shine in the glass and also prevents the formation of any kind of streaks or bubbles on the glass. Water and cornstarch are other solutions. For this, you will require a bucket of warm water. Three or four tablespoons of cornstarch should be added and mixed properly in the warm water. When the cornstarch gets dissolved, you need to add a half cup of vinegar to the already prepared solution. After this, you can go ahead with the normal cleaning procedure that was mentioned above. These solutions would work better than any other chemical solution that you buy at a hefty price. So, spend less and be natural.

But the major problem with DIY cleaning process is how to reach the window. So it is always best to ask a professional like Acorn Window Cleaning to do the job of window cleaning.
