Cleaning the glass on your front door and windows makes a good first impression and brightens inside your home. Here’s how:

• Step 1. Use an ammonia-free glass cleaner. Try a premixed vinegar-based cleaner, or make your own by mixing one part white vinegar to 10 parts water and apply to the glass. Avoid getting cleaning solutions on wood, fiber-glass or vinyl frames.

• Step 2. Use horizontal and vertical motions to wipe away the cleaner with a dry, lint-free towel. Clean interior and exterior surfaces.

• Step 3. Wipe up cleaner promptly to keep it from setting into the glass and frame junction, which could potentially weaken the seal.

• Step 4. Rinse with clear water if streaks remain after cleaning, and dry with a clean, lint-free towel.
