'Window cleaning should not be done on sunny days', expert advises
People who are desperate to remove the grime from their glass have been advised not to engage in window cleaning on sunny days.
This is according to US cleaning company training manager Debra Johnson, who told the Winston-Salem Journal that sprucing up panes when the sun is shining is a mistake.
Ms Johnson noted that doing this can often leave unwanted streaks because the water or cleaning fluid dries out too quickly.
While it may seem like the ideal time to do this job, those completing their domestic cleaning chores may have to perform the task twice.
The expert also suggested using an ammonia-based solution and a micro-fibre cloth to get windows gleaming.
Many homeowners dread the time of year when spring cleaning rises to the top of their priorities, so Ms Johnson advised getting the most arduous tasks done first.
"Start with the thing that bothers you most. Do the bigger jobs first," she told the publication.
It is also advisable to ensure the necessary products are in place before starting the clean-up operation, as motivation can wane if a certain substance suddenly runs out.
Recently, G Magazine suggested using bicarbonate soda as a means of making cleaning easier.
