How to Wash Windows – A Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning Glass

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean your windows effectively:

Materials You’ll Need:

  1. Window cleaner (commercial or homemade solution)
  2. Distilled water (if making a homemade solution)
  3. Vinegar (if making a homemade solution)
  4. Dish soap (if making a homemade solution)
  5. Microfiber cloths or lint-free paper towels
  6. Squeegee
  7. Bucket
  8. Soft-bristle brush or sponge
  9. Ladder (if needed)
  10. Protective gloves (optional)


  1. Prepare the Cleaning Solution:
    • If using a commercial window cleaner, follow the instructions on the product label.
    • If making your own solution, you can mix equal parts of distilled water and white vinegar or add a few drops of dish soap to a bucket of distilled water.
  2. Remove Dust and Debris:
    • Before applying the cleaning solution, use a soft-bristle brush or a dry microfiber cloth to remove any dust, cobwebs, or loose debris from the window and window frame.
  3. Apply the Cleaning Solution:
    • Dip a clean microfiber cloth or lint-free paper towel into the cleaning solution. Wring out any excess liquid to avoid dripping.
    • Wipe the window’s surface in sections, working from top to bottom. This helps prevent streaks. Be sure to cover the entire surface evenly.
  4. Scrubbing if Necessary:
    • For stubborn dirt or grime, dampen the soft-bristle brush or sponge with the cleaning solution.
    • Gently scrub the affected areas, applying light pressure to avoid scratching the glass.
  5. Squeegee the Glass:
    • Starting at the top corner of the window, place the squeegee against the glass and pull it down vertically in a straight line.
    • Wipe the squeegee blade with a clean cloth after each pass to prevent streaks.
    • Repeat this process, slightly overlapping each previous pass, until you’ve squeegeed the entire window.
  6. Wipe Edges and Sills:
    • Use a dry microfiber cloth to wipe the edges of the window frame, window sill, and any remaining moisture around the edges of the glass.
  7. Check for Streaks:
    • After squeegeeing, inspect the glass for streaks or spots. If you notice any, use a clean, dry microfiber cloth to gently buff them away.
  8. Repeat for Other Windows:
    • Repeat the above steps for all the windows you want to clean.
  9. Exterior Windows (if applicable):
    • For exterior windows, you might need a ladder for higher windows. Follow the same steps, and ensure the ladder is placed on a stable surface.
  10. Dispose of Cleaning Materials:
    • Dispose of any leftover cleaning solution properly and wash your cloths or towels as instructed on their care labels.
