Essential Window Cleaning Tips
First thing’s first: It’s time to clean the blinds. And cleaning between every single slat used to be tedious work, but it’s not anymore. Try our tongs trick to get them looking like new again.
Next, you’ll need a basic window cleaning solution that really gets results. All the good ones we’ve seen involve vinegar and Dawn dish detergent.
Get in those hard-to-reach window tracks with a sponge brush dipped in Pine-sol. It’ll make the house smell great, and you’ll finally have white window tracks again.
But if your window tracks look more like this (as mine do), it’s time to harness the power of baking soda and vinegar. Let those ingredients do their thing for 5-10 minutes, and the grime just wipes right off.
To get rid of mold on window sills, use a mixture of vinegar and tea tree oil. Put it in a spray bottle, let it sit for about 30 minutes, and then wipe it away.
