  Ivette provides professional guidance on the best way to clean a window.

  • First thing, remove everything on window surface and window sill. Apply Seventh Generation Glass Cleaner to window. Use a microfiber cloth or a 100 percent cotton shirt or special glass microfiber, clean from left to right, top to bottom.
  • The reason you need 100 percent cotton or glass microfiber is because other cloths leave dust behind that make the glass dirty.
  • Newspapers and magazines sometime will leave marks on glass or a toxic residue in your house.
  • Never leave windows wet.
  • Vinegar (3:1) can be used if you don't have glass cleaner.

Ivette is a trainer at Women's Action to Gain Economic Security (WAGES), a non-profit organization helping low-income women in the San Francisco Bay Area establish cleaning service cooperatives that use environmentally-safe methods to protect everyone's health.
