I can never seem to keep my windows clean. Between the pollen and the rain and the kids’ dirty handprints, the glass gets dirty about 10 seconds after I clean it.
But, have you ever noticed how much brighter your home is with clean windows? It makes a world of difference!
So, with that in mind, I do try to clean my windows when I am bored enough or trying to avoid something else enough to actually do it (you feel me on that, don’t you?). I try to avoid using chemical filled cleaning supplies where possible, but it’s been difficult finding something non-toxic that works as well as Windex does on my windows.
Well, until now.
I have started using the handheld portion of my HomeRight Steam Machine Plus (Amazon affiliate link) and a clean microfiber cloth to clean my windows, and the results are amazing.
Here’s an image looking out of the glass in our backdoor window. I focused the camera on the actual its glass itself, so you can see smudges and tons of dirt. Such a pretty thing to see every day!
To clean my windows, I put the squeegee attachment onto the handheld portion of the Steam Machine Plus and fill it with water. Once it heats up, I make one pass down with the steam and then wipe it with a dry microfiber cloth. Then, I do the next section and wipe it dry. I just try to get the wet window wiped before it dries, which happens pretty quickly with the steam.
I clean both the inside and the outside of my windows using this method. It really doesn’t take much more time to clean this way then it did to spray the yucky Windex and wipe it off my windows.
Here’s a shot of the same window after it has been totally cleaned, with my camera again focusing on the glass. Crazy, huh? We have one of those windows that has the blinds inside of it on this door, and the dust that you see in this image is between those two panes of glass – and I’m not a big enough freak to take the window apart to clean it. Sorry!
So, if you are thinking you can only used a steam cleaner on your tile floors, then think again! Here are 20 uses I’ve found for mine, and I keep looking for more ways to use it.
