Tips for effective window cleaning with vinegar
To clean windows with your homemade solution, start by spraying generously on the window. Then, with a clean, lint-free cloth or window squeegee, move up and down. After squeegee cleaning, use a microfiber cloth to wipe away any residual water drops on the windows. The microfiber cloth is strongly recommended because it does not leave marks or lint on the windows. For sunny days, avoid cleaning at that time. Indeed, the sun risks drying the vinegar solution too quickly and could leave marks.
