How to Clean Windows With Microfiber Cloths

Quality microfiber is soft, lint-free and absorbent so it won't leave behind streaks on your windows.

Clean your windows to a crystal-clear shine with microfiber cloths.
The small fibers trap dirt and dust, enabling you to clean even the dirtiest windows with little effort. Use microfiber cloths with a homemade or store-bought cleaner to make your windows shine. .

Make a cleaning solution if you have vinyl or coated windows. Mix two to three drops of dish soap in a spray bottle with warm water. Add a small splash of vinegar to remove water spots.

Spray the windows thoroughly with your homemade cleaning solution or commercial window cleaner. Work in one manageable section at a time.

Wipe the windows thoroughly with a damp microfiber cloth. This will remove any tough dirt and grime.

Spray the windows with cleaner once again. Wipe quickly and thoroughly with a dry cloth to avoid streaking.

Things You Will Need

  • Microfiber cloths
  • Spray bottle
  • Dish soap
  • White vinegar
  • Window cleaner (optional)


  • If you're cleaning the window exteriors, spray with a garden hose first to loosen any dirt.


  • Use only a few drops of soap in your cleaning solution. Any more than that and you'll end up with bubbles and streaks.
