It’s great when the sun shines but it does show up every finger print and smear on your windows. Before you reach for the window cleaner, try this hack to keep them streak free. Earlier this year, a poster on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group recommended using fabric conditioner on your windows. In the post, Jade advises using a cap full of fabric softener and warm water. She says: ‘I love it. I’ve done my lounge Windows and pvc, fire place, snow globes, plant pots, & pic frames looks and smells amazing. ‘Seen a lot of people use comfort but I used Aldi almat for just over £2. You can use on tiled or wood flooring too! The results are amazing! She later added: ‘I used a large bowl, cap of softener, 3/4 warm water. If goes on creamy/slimy the just add more water. I’ve seen people use cotton cloths. I used microfiber [sic] to put on the a glass cloth to rub off.’
Apparently the stuff helps to stop the dust sticking to the windows or other things made of glass so it helps keep them clean for longer. After posting the tip, some other people had some more tips for what to do with fabric conditioner. Donna said: ‘Wash the radiators with it to and when they heat up they smell lovely, also if your hover has a washable filter, wash that with it .’ Jade even posted an update to say that she’d used the mixture on her rings too to help make them extra shiny. And if that gets you in the spring cleaning mood, try this hack for cleaning dirty oven racks.
