Window cleaning is one of the most imperative tasks as most of the dust and dirt enters the home via windows. It is important to keep the edges, glass, and blades of the windows clean using right cleaning techniques. To keep the windows clean, most of us use harsh cleaners that can be harmful to your health. Instead of buying chemical based cleaning products, I prefer to prepare them at home itself.

Today, I am going to tell you a cheap and affordable ways of cleaning windows using homemade cleaner, and also light upon the benefits of it.

How to use it?

Once in every six or eight months, you can outsource a professional end of lease cleaning team such as Bond Cleaning in Adelaide. The company helped me during my end of the tenancy time when they cleaned up my entire lease property in order to get my 100 % bond money back.
