Have you ever spent hours cleaning your windows, only to discover that when the sun shines through they look worse than they did before!? They end up covered in streaks and paper towel lint, every time. Every time! Even when I use a squeegee they end up with lines and drips. I think there must be some kind of art to this window cleaning business.

For some reason, I’ve never thought beyond your standard glass cleaner (like Windex), until recently. After so many failed attempts at streak-free windows, I decided to do a little research to see what I was doing wrong. I mean, it can’t be THAT hard, can it?
Well, it’s not! Seriously, throw out your glass cleaner because you will never need it again. I discovered the miracle solution to all streaks and lint– MICROFIBER GLASS CLEANING CLOTHS! (Amazon Affiliate Link)
For interior windows:
Simply wipe them down without any prior cleaning. I keep one handy in my kitchen to wipe away the fingerprints and smudges that constantly show up on my back doors and windows.
For exterior windows:
Hose them down and give them a quick scrub with the thicker green cloths (if needed), and then use the thin microfiber cloths to basically wipe away any water marks or residue.
They have many other uses, too!
I use them to clean and polish my mirrors, phone and iPad screens, car windows, shower doors, pictures, wine glasses and stainless steel appliances.
I’m pretty sure I’ve saved at least a few dozen paper towel rolls with these cloths. Not to mention, all of the chemical-filled glass cleaner spray bottles that no longer take up valuable space under my kitchen sink.
