Ammonia is one of the best products that you can use to clean glass, windows and mirrors. And that's because this product has a great degreasing and cleaning effect, with which you will get amazing results. Dilute the ammonia in a little water- always be cautious, as it is an abrasive product - and proceed to clean your glasses.


Another perfect trick to clean glasses is to use newspaper paper instead of a cloth. Thus you avoid lint sticking to the glass.


Also, when it comes to polishing your glasses, mixing water with vinegar and spraying it onto the surfaces to be cleaned works a treat. To do this, put the mixture into a spray bottle and thus apply this preparation directly onto the marks on the glass. To achieve even better results, we recommend using hot or warm water to remove dirt more easily. This trick is also perfect for eliminating watermarks on glass.
