Watermarks, sticker glue, or scratches obstructing your view? Do not worry – they are not permanent. Even though windows with sticker glue marks can become pretty gross and grimy, having those sticky notes, motivational quotes, and other items on the to-do list right in front of you is also important. The good news is that several easier and more affordable methods can save you time and effort, helping clean those office windows in no time.
Most of these methods use everyday personal care and grocery products, so you won’t have to go to a fancy supermarket to find them. However, suppose you still want a product specifically made for window cleaning. In that case, we suggest using an eco-friendly product to help you keep your windows bright and shining while protecting the environment.
Here are a few quick and easy hacks to get you started:
Toothpaste – A Miracle Worker
Yes, you read that right! All you need to do is add a non-gel toothpaste to a soft cloth and rub it in circular motions onto the scratch. After doing this, use a damp cloth to wipe off that paste and then a dry cloth to clean the window. Lastly, buff the window to make it spotless and sparkling. Use a non-gel toothpaste because it is gritty, with fine particles that remove teeth build-up and correct minor scratches in the window glass.
Surgical Spirit – A Grime Remover
Tapes and adhesives behind post-it notes are often meant to stick for long periods. When you remove them, they can leave stubborn marks. Therefore, using normal cleaning sprays might not do the trick. Surgical spirits can easily eliminate glue and dirt, leaving your glass spotless and shining. Add one part water into one-part surgical spirit into a spray bottle and wipe the adhesive with a soft cloth or sponge.
Vinegar – Your Eco-Friendly Cleaning Companion
It is an all-rounder! Vinegar can work wonders on any surface and have multiple applications. Like removing stubborn limescale or soap stains and deodorizing enclosed spaces. One of these applications includes removing watermarks from office windows.
The acidity in the vinegar helps remove the usual film on glass windows, leaving them spotless and streaky. Add one part hot water to one part vinegar. Then, wipe the entire window surface with a damp sponge before rinsing with plain water.
White vinegar can also do the trick if you do not have spirit vinegar. Make sure you are ready with gloves to avoid irritation on your hands and a mask if you are sensitive to strong odors.
