A couple times a year all home owners have to clean their windows both inside and out. Everyone knows it has to be done and everyone knows how to clean windows. But did you know there is a right time for window cleaning? It’s true. Read carefully these Tips:
Many people like to do their outside window cleaning on a nice, bright sunny day. After all, it’s great to be outside in the nice weather, right? Well, it’s best just to relax outdoors when the sun’s shining because the sunshine will cause streaks to be left on the windows. This is because the cleaning solution dries before you get the chance to wipe it off.
Instead you should clean your windows when the weather is overcast and a little cooler. That way you will have time to wipe the cleaner off the window before it dries.
As a side note, cleaning your windows with newspaper works just as well as using paper towels and it’s much cheaper too. This could leave ink on your hands though so you’ll want to wear a pair of gloves.
Everyone knows that windows need to be cleaned both inside and out. However, many people don’t realize the outside of windows shouldn’t be cleaned while it’s warm and sunny out side, To avoid streaks, windows should always be cleaned on cooler, overcast days.
Net Curtains Cleaning
Net curtains are preferred by people, who prefer having more light in their room. Those kind of window coverings are extremely popular for kids rooms. No matter how thin net curtains are, they need regular maintenance like everything else and are on our household chore list. Read below and find out some tips on net curtains cleaning.
Curtains tend to accumulate dust pretty easily, which changes their original look and even the way they smell. Curtains, made from material like heavier polyester or cotton, can be easily laundered in the washing machine. If yours are more delicate and most likely to get damaged if washed, follow the advice of professionals “cleaning how to clean them properly”.
Hand washing is the way to go, when dealing with delicate fabrics. Take off your net curtains and place them in your bathtub. If you don’t have one, a large sink will do too. Fill it with warm (not hot) water and add a cup of mild laundry detergent.
In case your net curtains have developed an unpleasant odour, you can remove it with baking soda. Just add half cup and soak for an hour tops. You can rub the items together for more thoroughly cleaning.
Empty the sink or bathtub once you are done. Rinse with clean water, to get rid of the scum and any possible detergent residues. Take the net curtains out of the sink to dry. Cleaners advise to very carefully wring out the excess moisture. Find a suitable place to hang them up to dry. Best, leave the process to go naturally, without using any source of heat.
