What should you use to clean your interior windows?

You have a few options when it comes to window cleaner. Our professional house cleaners recommend using little product and a microfiber cloth. If you want to skip the store-bought window cleaners, white vinegar will do the job! Our pro-cleaners recommend one part white vinegar and one part water to clean your windows.

Get your window ready!

Before you clean the glass, clean your window panes, frames, and the window's inside tracks.

If you want to deep clean your windows or haven't cleaned your interior windows in a while, you will want to get a scrub brush to wipe away the dirt and grime that can build up over time.

If you don't have a microfiber cloth, you can use newspaper for a streak-free clean.

Using a squeegee at the end will give you that professionally cleaned look.
