    Default How do you clean your windows?

    So they aren't streaky? I just have always done what my mother did, and that is windex and newspaper- but my windows are horribly streaky! Help!

    The blue and white Viva glass wipes. You just need water.

    I also have a glass 'cloth' I got from the supermarket that is good but by the time I have done a set or two of louvres it is too wet to dry and 'polish' effectively.

    My MIL made a solution in a spray bottle of 1 cup white vinegar, a tsp rinse aid, drop of dish washing liquid and water to fill. Works good on shiney tiles too!

    Spray them with the hose and don't look too close when they dry 😳

    These are fantastic. The whole front of my house is glass. On one level. About 10mx2.5 mts.
    i use two of these one wet one for cleaning, a dry one for drying. I do it once a week, it only takes about 30 mins inside and out. Everyone comments on how clean my windows are. Good thing too, as they are a feature of the house that we paid thousands for.

    You're better than me - I only do them about once a month. But we have 160 louvres and 14 bi-fold door panels so I need something that is easy, effective and - ideally - cheap!

    Windex still generally streaks and newspaper bleeds all over my hands.

    I keep a set upstairs and a set downstairs. I really rate them.
