Washing Window Tricks

Have you ever wondered how those professional window washers move so fast withrepparttar squeegee, andrepparttar 100190 windows turn out perfect? Well, there really are some tricks to it that are simple to learn, and once you do, dare I say it, you may even enjoy washing windows? It is possible!

The first trick is to invest in a good squeegee. They aren't expensive and they are worth every cent! Those $1.99 ones just will not do. A professional squeegee has a very soft, rubber blade with no imperfections in it. You can also get extra rubber blades and simply replace that when it wears out. There are probably many sources to get one, but a source I like is The Clean Team. a basic, professional squeegee from them runs $9.95.

Secondly, do your windows on a cool, or cloudy day. If you HAVE to do it inrepparttar 100191 sun, do it inrepparttar 100192 morning. What you want to avoid here is heat. Heat works against you.

Get a bucket of lukewarm water (not hot), and add 2-3 tablespoons of plain ammonia. Use a sponge that has a white scrubber onrepparttar 100193 other side (don't userepparttar 100194 green ones, they are too course). Wet your window withrepparttar 100195 sponge side, then flip torepparttar 100196 white scrub pad side, and scrubrepparttar 100197 window. You'll be able to "feel" when it's clean. You'll feel rough patches, etc when it's still not clean. This is a step most people fail at, ifrepparttar 100198 window simply isn't clean, it's going to look cloudy when done. Scrub well.
