A few simple techniques to keep your window sparkling...

  • Area to be squeezed must be wet. To wet window, use properly diluted window-cleaning concentrate.
  • Apply enough solution to keep the window wet while using squeegee. If window dries, apply more solution. The squeegee will not work on a dry surface!
  • Tilt squeegee slightly to prevent from dripping onto dried areas.
  • Overlap each pass of the squeegee.
  • Wipe squeegee after each pass.
  • For smaller windows, use the squeegee in a back & forth, horizontal motion or spray with window cleaner and wipe with a clean dry towel.
  • For larger windows, thoroughly wet the top of the window. Work from left to right & top to bottom. Repeat cleaning pattern until one strip remains. The final pass is made across the bottom of the window.
  • Be certain to view the finished product from various angles to make sure there are no streaks
