The best way to clean your windows is with high-quality tools. These can be found in hardware stores or cleaning supply shops. The best place to buy window cleaning supplies is a specialist retailer.
What I would use to clean my windows
The squeegee should fit. While this blue one is great for professionals, it’s a little too much for the average home user.
The most important tool is your compass. The quality of the tool is important. Avoid buying cheap ones from petrol stations. Unger and Ettore are good brands. Wagtail Australia brand also works well. The swiveling handle takes some time to get used to.
It’s not important what brand of rubber you use, but window cleaners do.
I have sizes ranging from four to twenty-four inches. But I use the 14-inch squeegee most often.
Sleeve and plastic T-bar are included.
The sleeves come in three different versions: Porcupine, which has plastic bits on the side to remove stubborn marks; Regular, and Scourer (which also has a scouring strip). My favorite is the Water Retention version because I don’t have to return to the bucket every time to add water.
Fixed handles can be more comfortable for your wrists. A swivel handle is better when using a pole.
This scraper comes with replaceable blades for tough marks like paint, varnish, or insect markings. While the small pocket scraper shown to the right will suffice for most maintenance jobs, the larger ones that fit on the pole are best for large areas.
Be careful when using glass scrapers. If you don’t use the correct methods, your glass could be permanently damaged! Point 2 can be found under ‘How to Do It.’
Many window cleaners guard their formula jealously. It is not fair. It’s hard to resist, but I have to admit that the most popular window cleaning equipment and window cleaning supplies available in the market are easy to use”. The rubber should glide smoothly across the glass. Some people suggest vinegar and warm tap water. It is easier to turn the rubber squeegee when the suds are present.
The bucket does not exist in isolation.
Older is better as the fluff and lint will have been worn off. It is best to use an older towel, as it will be free of fluff or lint. I carry both a towel and a microfiber.
A squeegee that can reach up to two stories is the maximum height for a pole.
It is also useful to have a three-step ladder and an extension up to 2,5 stories. It’s not for people who aren’t comfortable at heights.
Here is where you should store your scraper rags.
The bucket is designed for professionals and is the perfect place to keep your mop, squeegee, and other cleaning tools. This will prevent them from dripping and allow you to have two hands-frees when climbing a ladder or roof.
How to do it
- Fill your bucket with about half or less of cold tap water. Hot water will evaporate faster. You can add a few drops to the water or directly onto the mop.
- You can use the scrapper only to scrape forward. This will stop dirt, cement, and other particles from dragging on the glass.
- Remove the squeegee. Assume that you are right-handed. Place your thumb in your right hand halfway between the handle’s top and side. It should be placed at a right angle.
- To calculate the angle, you need to measure the angle where the handle touches the glass (0 degrees) and when it is lifted from the glass 90 degrees, with the rubber on. The angle you’ll be looking for is 45 degrees. Keep that angle in mind as you continue to the next step.
- If you apply too much pressure, it will be difficult to move the hose. You will have difficulty moving the hose if you use too much pressure.
- Now you can use the squeegee. Start at the upper-left corner and work down. Make sure to reach all the edges. With a few tries, you will be able to do this without leaving any watermarks.
- If you’re a beginner, it may be necessary to use more than one microfiber towel per household.
- You can use the towel to wipe up any water that spills on the floor or window sill.
- When cleaning the bottoms of window frames, I prefer to use a towel.
- Rub any marks, such as tiny insect marks or soiled fingers, with a micro-fibre towel or try again.
- That’s it! You’re done!
- Clean all the windows you want by doing the same thing from both sides.
