It is important that you learn how to clean glass surfaces for a blemish-free look, especially since the last thing you want is for your glass windows and tabletops to bear unattractive smears.
A streak free window cleaner is by far your best weapon against such smears. You can use a store bought cleaner. Some commercial cleaning products will leave a residue, on the other hand.
You could, however, make your own homemade glass cleaning solution as described below:
By mixing equal portions of water and distilled white vinegar
By mixing 2 cups of water and 2 tablespoonfuls of ammonia
By mixing 8 cups of water and 2 tablespoonfuls of dishwashing liquid
You will need to choose a suitable cleaning tool once you are done preparing your homemade streak-free glass cleaning solution. You need some level of skill and elaborate wrist movement if you choose a squeegee as your preferred cleaning tool; a natural choice for most. A microfiber cloth or coffee filter, on the other hand, is the best glass cleaning tool. Achieving the same streak-free cleaning results as you would with the skillful handling of a squeegee on glass surfaces is much easier with the use of a microfiber cloth instead.
Start by using your cleaning solution to mist the glass windows or tabletop when cleaning glass surfaces. Start cleaning from the top, down to the bottom when cleaning windows. Use your microfiber cloth or coffee filter to wipe the cleaning solution gently off the glass surface after misting it. Swap the cloths or filters out for fresh ones if they get saturated with the wiping action. As a rule, if you start seeing any streaks, it’s probably time to swap out the wipes.
Moderation is the trick when it comes to cleaning glass surfaces to perfection. You are likely going to end up with unappealing smudges if you use too much cleaning solution on the glass surface. The microfiber cloth or coffee filter you are using will struggle when it comes to absorbing all of the solution simply because it is too much. Instead of wiping away the solution from the glass surface you are most likely going to end up smearing it, along with some dust and dirt, all over.
To ensure that you end up with a clean surface, free of any streaks and smudges, go over the surface one final time after you are done. You can use a dry microfiber cloth or coffee filter to buff these surfaces.
And with that, you will have mastered the best way to clean glass surfaces to perfection. Still need help?
