Home Cleaning Hacks for Windows and Doors

When it comes to maintaining your windows, doors, conservatories, orangeries and other household items, there are a number of life hacks you can use to make sure you get the best results without breaking the bank. Take a look below at some helpful tips to keep your home looking brand-new.


Some of you may already know this but vinegar is actually a great cleaning product when mixed with hot water. It is fantastic for removing stains and shining up doors. It is the ideal cleaning agent for windows and doors and we couldn’t recommend it enough when giving your home a spring clean.

Washing Up Liquid

Washing up liquid is not only great for cleaning your dishes and cutlery, if you mix it with water it is perfect for cleaning PVCu doors. Use a soft sponge to ensure when cleaning that no marks or scratches are left over after you have finished.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is great for a deeper clean. Mix with warm water and apply to the dirty area before wiping away. This is not suitable for all door types and therefore research is vital to ensure that it will work on your door. If it is not suitable for your door don’t be tempted to try anyway as it could actually leave lasting stains on the wrong door type.


Lemons can be used for a variety of purposes from cooking ingredients to a cleaning solution to make your windows sparkle. There are a number of cleaning solutions you can make using lemons and again we urge you to research which solution is best for your windows to ensure you get the results you desire.

We hope these little life hacks can help you when cleaning your windows and doors in the future. We hope you enjoyed this blog and we will be back with more helpful tips in the future.
