The flowers, the warmth – only a couple of things are better than looking out your wood windows on a perfect, warm day in Champaign. And with a small amount of spring-cleaning, those windows will shine, providing you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.
Whether they are wood windows or another material, no one wants streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind a couple cleaning tips when you begin your spring-cleaning:
- While it seems better to clean
with the sun out, the sun can actually dry the cleaning solution
before the glass is appropriately cleaned, so use that cloudy day to get your cleaning
- Having the best results means cleaning both the inside
and outside of your wood windows. It’s well worth the time when you see how good it will look.
- Always start from the top when washing your windows.
Doing so makes
sure the excess drips don’t head to the part of your wood windows that
hasn’t been cleaned yet.
- Take an old towel or paper towel and place it at
the bottom of the window to gather any drips to keep them from
settling on the frames.
- Once you have cleaned your windows, make sure you dry
the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips slipped through,
it will help shield the frame and finish of your wood
