Preparing Windows for Spring
TOM: The beauty of spring lies outside every window, and with the right care, you might actually be able to see it if you are preparing windows for spring. Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler.
LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete with today’s Money Pit home improvement minute. Make the most of an early spring afternoon by taking steps to care and clean your windows.
TOM: Start by carefully dismantling storm windows. Then clean and store them upright with a protective cushioning cover. Next, remove the screens and place them on a driveway or other flat surface. Clean both sides with a mild soap-and-water mixture and a soft bristle brush.
LESLIE: Last, brighten up exterior windows by cleaning the glass with a mixture of two tablespoons of white vinegar to a pint of water. Apply the mixture to the windows with a spray bottle. Then wipe the windows clean and streak-free using old newspaper instead of costly paper towels. That’s how we should be preparing windows for spring. I’m Leslie Segrete.
