Putting the “Win” in Windows

Did you know there’s an International Window Cleaning Competition? The International Window Cleaning Association hosts the annual event where cleaners prove who’s the fastest and most precise when it comes to windows. Check out a video from this year’s competition:

You can be a window cleaning champion, too. Here are some cleaning tips help you win those windows in your own home:

Window Frames & Windowsills
Use a small dustpan or vacuum attachment to get rid of dust, soot, cobwebs, and insects.
You can use cleaning wipes on plastic and vinyl window frames. If you’re using a spray product, spray it on the cloth and only use it for the sills, not the glass.

Window Glass
Spray the cleaning product on a clean cloth then clean the glass, avoiding the windowsill and frame. Use outdoor window glass spray products. They come with a nozzle that attaches to your hose. Spray from at least five feet away, and let the glass air-dry.

Dust with a clean, soft brush, or vacuum brush attachment. Clean with water and use a soft cloth or sponge. Dry with a clean, soft cloth and use furniture polish on the blinds to make cleaning easier next time. An electro-static duster is an easy maintenance tool you can use on and between the slats.

Window Coverings
If they’re washable, put them in the washer on the delicate cycle. If not, you can have them dry cleaned. You can also vacuum and then use a fabric spray to remove odors.
