Window cleaning is an art form that many of us struggle with. The humble window cleaner makes this job look easy, but when you have a go yourself, you are almost always left with an abstract, streaky finish that even Jackson Pollock would disapprove of!
Now, we certainly aren’t saying that the window cleaning products below will guarantee a streak-free window, but using the best products for the job will certainly make it easier to achieve.
So, here are five of the best window cleaning products available in the UK to use if you are on the quest for streak-free windows.
1. E-cloth Window Cleaning Pack
This E-cloth window cleaning pack is perhaps the perfect way to start your window cleaning career. The window cleaning pack is very easy to use, and you get excellent results.
Contained inside this pack is a window cloth and a polishing cloth. The window cloth is your first line defence; it can be used to remove the thickest grime from your windows. The polishing cloth can then be used to wipe down the windows and get a shine like never before. These cloths can also be used on wooden and UPVC window and door frames inside and outside.
These cloths only need water to work, and they do a surprisingly good job at cleaning windows even if you have little ones or pets that seem obsessed with pressing body parts up against them!
