It’s the first week of Spring and it’s time to Spring Clean the house!  Whether you are planning to spot or deep clean, it’s always great to start with a list of chores you want to tackle.  I personally like to do the easy tasks all in one day, moving to the more intricate jobs as the week goes on. My favorite chore? Glass surfaces.  I like to open the window blinds, let the sun shine in and wipe down the windows, glass shower doors, end tables and mirrors! Lucky for us, Windex® remains the trusted streak-free cleaner that helps tackle our accumulated dirt, dust and grime.  A great product, combined with amazing glass surface cleaning tips, will help to make your home as shiny as new!


Since the week called for rain, I knew it would be a good time to get some cleaning done.  I made my weekly shopping list and added Windex®, because it’s a product I can trust.  Plus, I knew right where the product would be on the Home Cleaning aisle at our local Walmart.

Windex® Original Glass Cleaner is America’s #1 glass cleaner.  It is always perfect for many of the surfaces throughout the home including windows, mirrors, glass shower doors, chrome bathroom fixtures, tile, plastic, vinyl, aluminum and more.  And trust me when I say those glass surfaces are everywhere around here!


Though it was quite gloomy outside, I love the instant gratification of clean inside:  The mirrors are shiny, the shower door is sparkly and the glass table top is free from fingerprints.  Three surfaces that were embarrassing to look at before are now eye candy for the taking – all with the help of Windex®, a little music on the radio and a few glass surface cleaning tips.


Three Glass Surface Cleaning Tips

Get a lint-free shine:  Paper towels and dust cloth leave little pieces of lint behind. Clean your glass surfaces with newspaper or coffee filters. You’ll never go back to paper towels again!

Know where you’ve cleaned:  When cleaning windows or glass table tops, wipe one side in horizontal strokes and the other in vertical strokes.  This way, when you’re left with dirt, fingerprints or an occasional streak, you’ll know which side to re-wipe!

Clean outside surfaces when the sun goes down: Avoid cleaning windows when the sun is shining directly on the glass. If the glass warms too much while the windows are wet, it’ll dry the cleaner before you’ve had a chance to wipe the window clean.


  1. I couldn’t agree with your post more! I use only Windex products on my windows and mirrors. I find that they are simply the most streak-free on the market. My puppy loves to look outside all day and he leaves his nose marks on 2 windows so I am constantly cleaning them! Can’t wait for spring so I can open the windows up again.

  2. Between my curious toddler and overly-hyper canine, I am always cleaning windows and glass surfaces. I cant wait to try using coffee filters instead of paper towels for the lint free finish, Thanks for the tip!
