In our new house we have a beautiful view of the mountains, however this is what we were seeing from the inside looking out. Lots and lots of water spots, and probably YEARS of uncleaned windows. (Kind of kills the view doesn’t it?)
It’s pretty bad, and it was really starting to bug me.
But since we are in the middle of Fall Cleaning, I thought this would be the perfect time to show you how to wash windows without chemicals! I used to wash my outside windows with a bucket of soapy water and a squeegee, but since the SteamMachine has a steam attachment for windows I thought I’d give it a try!
Even our cat is sad about the super dirty windows!
Steaming the windows was a very quick and easy way to clean them and it was much easier then lugging around a bucket of water, a rag and a squeegee. We started at the bottom of the window and released the steam as we moved the wand up to the top of the window.
Then as we pulled the squeegee down, toward the bottom of the window, we would steam some more. Some of the windows we didn’t have to steam it both up and down, but on the really dirty windows we had to. The SteamMachine holds a lot of water so we were able to do 19 windows and doors before we had to refill the water tank!
Look at the transformation it made! No products, no chemicals, just steam!
Now we can enjoy the view from our house and not have to look through the “haze” of water spots and years of dirt. Cleaning the windows is not my favorite Fall and Spring cleaning task, but it is definitely one of the most rewarding!
