How to clean windows and glass surfaces?

(zdj. Clinex)

The basic feature and purpose of glass surfaces is their transparency. We expect them to be shiny, transparent and streak-free. To achieve this effect, we must take proper care of it, because glass surfaces unfortunately have the tendency to show every little smudge, fingerprint and dust speck.

Which liquid for cleaning windows and glass surfaces?

Glass surfaces are very difficult to keep clean. Sometimes you can spend a lot of time making them look nice and still not achieve the intended goal. All it takes is for the sun to shine and it turns out that there are streaks on the glass. When washing windows, make sure to use a good-quality, clean cloth and an appropriate cleaning liquid. It cannot be a liquid that we will have to wipe dry for a long time. It should evaporate quickly from the surface, leaving no streaks.

The second important feature of a good quality liquid is the effective removal of dust, tree pollen and insects. If the fluid cannot cope with this basic task, we should look for another one. Another, equally important, feature of window cleaner is its smell. It cannot be irritating or unpleasant because when we spray it on the glass surface we have direct contact with it. We can often smell alcohol, vinegar, ammonia and added fragrance in glass cleaning liquids. Modern glass cleaning liquids cope very well with greasy stains and all other contaminants. The better ones also have properties that prevent dirt from re-depositing quickly.

Let’s summarize – Features of a good liquid for cleaning windows and glass surfaces:

  1. It evaporates quickly on its own without the need for long wiping.
  2. Does not leave streaks.
  3. They add shine to the cleaned surface
  4. Effectively removes dust, grease and organic dirt, e.g. tree pollen and insects.
  5. It smells pleasant – it cannot be irritating.
  6. It has properties that protect against the re-deposition of dirt – e.g. polymers filling micro-scratches

What can you use glass cleaner for?

Window cleaning fluids have versatile uses. Windows, shiny mirrors, glass doors and tables, shop windows, elements made of stainless steel and all other glass surfaces whose transparency is important to us are indispensable without them. It’s worth having such a liquid on hand when chipped fingers and streaks appear on the glass. Currently, there is a very large selection of glass cleaning products on the market. Ready-to-use liquids and concentrates are available. Liquids also differ in the method of application; we can choose from foams, liquids and aerosols. Product scents are also becoming more and more diverse.

Ammonia-free glass cleaner – Clinex Glass

Recently, a new Clinex window cleaning product has appeared on the market. It is Clinex Glass – without ammonia , in a new, refreshed formulation . This preparation is ready for use and comes in the form of a liquid. Removes the most persistent, dried dirt and grease, and even insects. It is enriched with polymers that delay the deposition of dust because they fill micro-scratches on the glass surface, giving it a shine – this prevents dirt and water vapor from entering the cleaned surface. Thanks to this, the surface does not get dirty so quickly and the subsequent cleaning process is significantly simplified. The product dries quickly and evaporates from the cleaned surface, leaving no streaks. It has a pleasant lemon scent.

Regular and, above all, effective and efficient cleaning of glass surfaces will allow us to enjoy their shine. Clean glass will reflect light beautifully and the interiors in which it is present will be brighter. The right product for cleaning windows and all glass elements will help us achieve this goal.
