The Right Material

Paper towels are most commonly used, but they can often leave behind lint which can make your windows look dirty.  When cleaning windows always use a clean, dry paper towel or lint-free cloth to clean glass surfaces. Coffee filters, recycled t-shirts, or crumpled up newspapers are also great for wiping down glass surfaces

Different Strokes

When cleaning windows, use horizontal strokes on one side and vertical strokes on the other. If you miss a spot, it’s easy to pinpoint which side of the window it’s on. It is also recommended to start cleaning from top to bottom. With our foam-action formula, worrying about dripping becomes a worry of the past.

The Little Details

Use cotton swabs or small foam paintbrushes to clean corners and crevices of windows, mirrors and glass tables where your cloth can’t reach. Just lightly douse the tip with our glass cleaner.

On-The-Go Shine

Glass Cleaning Wipes are a convenient way to keep your on-the-go glass surfaces clean. Keep a package of wipes ready and handy in your vehicle or bag for items such as binoculars, camera lenses, telescope lenses, bicycle mirrors, and goggles. Wipes also take care of smears and build up on the inside of the windshield.

Stove Top Friendly

Sprayway Glass Cleaners are perfect for stovetop cleaning. Make sure to use gentler tools such as microfiber cloths to avoid scratches and never clean your stovetop while the surface is still hot.

Streak-Free Shine

While it may seem like it would be easier to clean windows better with the sun streaming in, it’s actually the opposite. The heat from the sun can prematurely dry your window cleaner, leading to reside and streaks. Wait for a cloudy day and use for a streak-free shine.

Using a vacuum is one way to get into all those hard to reach cracks in the window track. However, a toothbrush is an even better way to get into every little crevice effectively and efficiently.
