Spring Window Cleaning Tips

With the beautiful weather we have been receiving in New England this year, your probably thinking about spring a little earlier than usual…. and not to far from that are thoughts of Spring cleaning. Here at Exeter Glass, we asked some of our glass experts to share some of their favorite glass cleaning tips, and compiled them in the list below.


  • Wash one side of a window with horizontal strokes and the other side with vertical strokes. Then you can pinpoint which side of the window has the streaks.
  • Use a squeegee on a long handle or sponge/squeegee combination to prevent streaks on large windows.
  • Eliminate tiny scratches on glass by polishing the affected areas with toothpaste.
  • Washing windows should be done on a cloudy day, because direct sunlight dries cleaning solutions before you can polish the glass properly.
  • Use a soft toothbrush or cotton swab to clean corners.
  • To give an extra shine to window glass, polish it with well-washed cotton T-shirts or old cloth diapers.
  • Polish windows to a sparkling shine with a crumpled newspaper. The paper also leaves a film that’s resistant to dirt.
  • Wash windows from the top down to prevent drips.

Happy Spring!

    800mm = 80cm which isn’t too far off the ground, so if an adult fell barwcakds they could go through the glass.I’m not sure when the regulations changed, but if the company you chose didn’t fit safety glass I’m very surprised. Have a look at the particulars. Most glass for doors and windows these days is considered to be safety glass, so if your worry is about whether or not you’ve got it, contact the fitters and ask them. You don’t need to tell them who you are, but they should be able to answer your question.Or have I missed the point of your question entirely?!
