How to Give Glass an Unbeatable Streak-Free Shine*

It's easy to give glass an unbeatable streak-free shine* with Windex® Original Glass Cleaner. Follow these helpful tips to make sure nothing gets in the way of your superior sparkle.

Cleaning glass streak-free shine

Do a roll call

Choosing the right paper towel can make a difference. Only use untreated varieties. Extra-absorbent towels can leave behind a film.

Treat your cloths right

Don’t add fabric softener to your load of towels – it could leave a film on glass surfaces and interfere with the sparkle.

Choose lint-free

Microfiber or other lint-free towels won’t leave behind little specks on glass surfaces. Newspaper or old, clean cotton diapers are other great options.

Beat the heat

Hot surfaces can make the product evaporate before you get a chance to wipe. Avoid cleaning windows on hot, sunny days and make sure surfaces like glass stovetops are completely cool before cleaning with Windex® Original Glass Cleaner.

Pace yourself

To avoid drips and evaporation, spray Windex® Glass Cleaner on large windows in sections, wiping away the cleaning solution before moving on to the next portion.
