5 Simple Tricks for Spotless Windows Every Time

Keeping your windows clean and streak-free can be a challenging task, but with the right techniques and tools, you can achieve spotless windows every time. Here are five simple tricks to help you achieve crystal-clear windows that will make your home or office shine.

1. Use the Right Tools

One of the most important factors in achieving spotless windows is using the right tools. Invest in a good quality squeegee, microfiber cloth, and a window cleaning solution. Avoid using paper towels or newspapers, as they can leave behind lint and streaks on your windows. A squeegee is the most effective tool for removing water and cleaning solution from your windows, leaving them streak-free. Microfiber cloths are great for buffing and polishing your windows to a sparkling finish.

2. Clean from Top to Bottom

When cleaning your windows, always start at the top and work your way down. This will prevent streaks and drips from forming on the lower portion of the window. Use a vertical motion when cleaning the windows to ensure that the cleaning solution is evenly distributed and that any drips are easily wiped away. Working from top to bottom will also help you see any streaks or smudges as you go, allowing you to address them immediately.

3. Use a Vinegar Solution

One of the most effective and eco-friendly window cleaning solutions is a mixture of vinegar and water. Simply mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle and use it to clean your windows. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and degreaser, making it great for cutting through dirt and grime on your windows. It also dries quickly, leaving behind a streak-free shine. If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, you can add a few drops of essential oil to the solution for a pleasant scent.

4. Don’t Forget the Window Frames and Sills

When cleaning your windows, don’t forget to clean the window frames and sills as well. Dust and dirt can accumulate in these areas, making your windows look dirty even after they have been cleaned. Use a damp microfiber cloth or a soft brush to clean the frames and sills, and wipe them dry with a clean cloth. This will give your windows a polished look and make them shine even brighter.

5. Polish with Newspaper

After cleaning your windows, give them a final polish with a crumpled piece of newspaper. Newspaper is great for removing any remaining streaks and smudges, leaving your windows sparkling clean. Simply crumple up a sheet of newspaper and use it to buff your windows in a circular motion. The ink in the newspaper helps to absorb any remaining moisture and leaves behind a streak-free finish.


Q: How often should I clean my windows?

A: It is recommended to clean your windows at least twice a year to keep them looking their best. However, if you live in an area with high pollution or near the ocean, you may need to clean them more frequently.

Q: Can I use a homemade cleaning solution for my windows?

A: Yes, you can easily make a homemade window cleaning solution using vinegar, water, and a few drops of dish soap. This solution is effective at cutting through dirt and grime and leaving your windows streak-free.

Q: What is the best way to prevent streaks on my windows?

A: The best way to prevent streaks on your windows is to use the right tools and techniques. Make sure to clean your windows from top to bottom, use a squeegee for drying, and buff with a microfiber cloth or newspaper for a streak-free finish.

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
