How Glass and Window Cleaning Products Work
article kindly provided by
The Power of Natural Household Glass Washing
Many of us buy products for cleaning windows and mirrors (and other large bits of glass around our homes) without much thought. We take it for granted that they do the work of getting the gunk off your window and don’t leave streaks all over the window either. But how do they work? Are commercial cleaning products for glass the only answer for getting your windows shiny?
Here is the answer to this question. But don’t panic – we’re not going to bombard you with scientific formulae or long chemical names!
Most commercial window cleaning detergents have some sort of solvent to get rid of the oily gunk that builds up on windows and doors. Most of this oil comes from skin in the form of hand prints; other types of dirt usually wash off with just a bit of water. There’s also something in most of those products to prevent streaking, which is often alcohol or something else that’s very volatile and will evaporate quickly so streaks don’t form.
The other way that glass cleaners manage to prevent streaking is by ensuring that there aren’t any salts (that’s salt in the scientific sense) in the product. This means that there aren’t any solids to be left behind as residue, which is something you get with products designed to clean other hard surfaces.
A lot of commercial window cleaning products contain ammonia, as it is a grease cutter and it also evaporates quickly. Some may contain strong alkaline products such as sodium hydroxide (lye) or strong acids like hydrochloric acid – though they won’t contain both products at once. A lot of them also contain a few artificial fragrances to cover up the powerful pong emitted by these ferocious chemicals.
If you’re sensitive to chemicals and want clean windows and mirrors but without harming the environment, then you may want to consider another option. And greener options are possible. After all, plenty of professional window cleaners manage to get windows looking perfect with just water if they operate high-reach window washing machines. You’ve got other options, too, even if you want to do the job yourself rather than hiring a pro to do it for you.
OK, here is the truth that big manufacturers don’t want you to know. They try to hide it and hold on to it for as long as possible. Why? The longer you go and buy their poisonous stuff the more money they make. Simple!
The truth is that you can make the process of cleaning your windows, mirrors and glass a bit more environmentally friendly (and cheaper) in a number of ways:
Vinegar and water. Vinegar and water mixed (or even just straight vinegar) will dissolve a lot of the gunk on your window and will evaporate without leaving spots. What’s more, vinegar used straight will also kill mildew.
Plain water and lots of elbow grease. It’s simple but it will require a fair amount of effort. If you call it a workout, it becomes a lot more enjoyable.
Newspaper. Apparently, the ink in old scrunched newspapers acts as a solvent to get rid of the dirt, while the paper mops it all up before it can leave streaks. You will need to get the newspaper slightly damp first, either with plain water, water and vinegar mix, or water with a little squirt of detergent. Don’t let the newspaper get too wet or it will leave paper scraps all over your window.
Controlling what chemical substances enter your home is vital for your quality of life, bringing up healthy children and last but not least, saving the planet Earth from avoidable pollution with long term effects. Natural is best and that includes window cleaning. Spread the word, make this world a happier and healthier place. Type your paragraph here.
