Window Cleaning Tips: Paper Towels
A lot of us use paper towels for cleaning windows without really thinking about it. But are they the best thing for the job? The answer depends on whether you’re using soft, cloth-like paper towels or cheaper, stiffer paper towels like you might find at your local Dollar Tree.
Surprisingly, the cloth-like texture of some paper towel brands are not the best for cleaning windows. The softer the fibers, the more they tend to leave lint and streaks behind. In contrast, a cheap and stiff paper towel is usually the better choice for windows because the fibers don’t break down as quickly. However, they still tend to leave your windows streaky if you aren’t careful.
