If keeping windows, mirrors and glass surfaces free from streaks and smudges feels like a never-ending household chore, don’t fret, you’re not alone. These surfaces tend to collect dust and dirt easily and often need extra TLC in your weekly cleaning routine.
As we’re more than just your trusted floorcare expert, we thought it’s about time we talked about glass surfaces, too. Read on to discover the smudge-prone surfaces in your home and find out our top tips for keeping items streak-free.
We were lucky enough to have cleaning royalty, Lynsey Queen on Clean share her cleaning tips and tricks with us last month on the Vileda blog. She advised our Vileda community that when it comes to banishing your window woes, the best time to tackle your window cleaning is on a dry, cloudy day. If you clean windows on a sunny day, the hot window glass will dry the window cleaner and leave behind hard to remove stains.
Before getting started on outside windows, remove all the dirt from the window frame using a brush. We recommend using the Vileda Dustpan Set which removes the dirt in one easy sweep. This will also prevent any dirt from getting onto the window while you’re washing it and cut down your cleaning time.
Using the right window cleaning tool is essential to achieving a streak-free shine on your windows. To remove dirt and greasy fingerprints give your windows a good wash-down with the Vileda Window Cloth. This lint free cloth safely cleans and has 30% microfibre for added cleaning power. After cleaning, use the Vileda Windomatic Power to quickly vacuum away the dirty water and easily achieve streak-free results. With its flexible neck for easy manoeuvring and 50% more suction in max mode, the Windomatic might just make window cleaning your favourite household task…
The Vileda Windomatic Power isn’t just for windows, it can also be used on glass surfaces around the home including, mirrors, glass tables and kitchen worktops. First, wash the surface area with the Vileda Window Cloth to remove any dirt or dust and pay extra attention to the corners and cracks, as this is where grime and dirt will build up.
Then using your Vileda Windomatic Power glide along the glass or smooth surface to vacuum up the remaining dirty water.
The Vileda Windomatic Power is also perfect for quickly sucking up spilled drinks and liquids and the water tank can be easily detached and put into the dishwasher to clean.
For anyone with glass shower doors, hard-water stains and soap marks can quickly build up.
The Vileda Window Squeegee is a lightweight and convenient cleaning tool that effectively wipes excess water from the glass surface and removes streaks. After using your shower, run the squeegee from top to bottom on the surface area, removing the excess water as you go.
When you’re finished using the squeegee, simply rinse it off under clean water and hang it up to air dry.
