Everyone wants to get that beautiful, streak-free shine for their windows.

What  should you use for window cleaning at home?

We do not use harsh chemicals to clean windows. If it can damage your property, then it’s not worth it for you to try either! Strong chemicals can also leave visible residue, and be toxic for children and pets. 

While we can’t give away our top-rated trade secrets, one simple solution is to use mild dishwashing liquid. Mix a small amount of dish detergent into a bucket of water and mix evenly. Bubbles are both welcome and expected. 


For some extra kick to cut through dirt, some people recommend adding white vinegar to the mix. Lemon juice is a reasonable substitute should white vinegar be unavailable.

Swirl your solution onto windows using a scrubbing tool. Be sure to use something that won’t scratch windows or surfaces. That means no brillo pads! Cover the window entirely. 

The above formula won’t substitute for a professional’s cleaning repertoire, but it can do the trick with the right diligence and dedication. Given the nature of window cleaning and potential dangers it can pose, it is always best to utilize professional assistance.
