1. Cleaning windows when it’s too hotWhen cleaning your windows, it might seem like a great idea to do so on a sunny day when there’s extra light to expose all the dirt there is to clean. However, doing so causes the heat from the sun to dry up the window too quickly, leaving streaks along the way. Instead, opt for a cloudy day to tackle this task.Tip: To get your windows extra sparkly, add a tablespoon of cornstarch to a litre of lukewarm water in a spray bottle. Spray on the glass, then wipe your windows with newspaper, cloth or a squeegee, as you would with commercial glass cleaner.The procrastinator’s ultimate cleaning rundown
