Don't Make This Common Mistake When Cleaning Windows
The common mistake people make while cleaning windows is wiping them in a circular motion, leading to a streaky finish. Instead, wipe them in a side-to-side, window-wiper motion.
If you're cleaning windows in circles, you'll consistently smudge the areas you've already cleaned. Your wipes will overlap, and you'll constantly undo
what you just finished.
Circular motions also often generate static electricity buildup, which might not cause streaks, but it does attract more dust to the glass.
You should also clean windows on an overcast day so the water doesn't quickly evaporate and
lead to streaks, and use microfiber cloths to avoid leaving lint or lines behind.
