Clean vinyl windows by mixing water with bleach or dish liquid, scrubbing the windows from the bottom up and rinsing the windows from the top down. Make sure the windows are closed before washing them with advice from a remodeling contractor in this free video on cleaning windows.
Hi, I'm Tim Gipson. I'm going to talk to you about how to clean vinyl windows. Now, cleaning vinyl windows, you can use any kind of a mild detergent solution, such as a mixture of water and dish liquid. And, if you have some staining on your vinyl windows, you can also use a bleach solution to help get rid of those stains. Now, when we're using bleach, we want to dilute the bleach and use one part bleach to four parts water. And we can actually mix our bleach in with our detergent solution when we're cleaning. Now, if you're working out of a bucket, you want to go ahead and mix this up, and you want to apply it to the window. And you can use a mop or any kind of a bristle brush, such as this, to apply that onto the window. And then you can just simply hose it down with the hose. Now, when we're cleaning, we want to make sure that we do the lower part, and that we scrub up. And, of course, the most important thing is to make sure that all your windows are closed and secured so you don't get any water in the house while you're doing this. Now, if you do have access to a pressure washer, you can go ahead and you can just take your bleach and your detergent and you can mix it up directly in here. Now, most of your dish liquids are ultra concentrated, so I would still cut this down to prevent some over-sudsing, probably perhaps, one part of the dish washing liquid to about ten parts of water. And, with the pressure washer, we can simply use a low pressure sudsing tip to apply that. And again, go back and use our bristle brush to scrub. And then come back with a higher pressure, or...which is the lower the degree of nozzle, the higher the pressure you would have on your pressure washer. So, whether you're using a pressure washer or whether you're using a hose, just remember, apply your soap and scrub from the bottom up and then rinse from the top down. So I'm Tim Gipson, and that's how to clean vinyl windows.
