The flowers, the warmth – not many things are better than looking out your wood windows on a nice, warm day in Ketchum. And with a bit of spring-cleaning, those windows will sparkle, leaving you great views and the great feeling of a clean home.
Whether they are wood windows or another type, no one likes streaky windows or dust bunnies around their windowsills. Keep in mind these few cleaning tips when you kickoff your spring-cleaning:
- While it seems better to clean
with the sun out, the sun may actually dry the cleaning solution
before the glass is properly cleaned, so take
advantage of the cloudy day to get your cleaning
- Receiving the best results means cleaning both the inside
and outside of your wood windows. It’s well worth the time when you see how good it will look.
- Always clean from the top when washing your windows.
Doing so ensure the drips stay out of the area of your wood windows that
hasn’t been cleaned yet.
- Take an old towel or paper towel and lay it at
the bottom of the window to collect any drips to keep them from
settling on the frames.
- Once you have cleaned your windows, make sure you dry
the windowsills with a cloth. If any drips made their way through,
it will help shield the frame and finish of your wood
