My mom always did this to our windows, when I was a kid. The water in Hurricane is just as hard as it is where I now live, so I figured I’d give it a shot (and soon, before my husband picked up some chemicals).What is the Non-Toxic solution to the problem?
- I say start with a fresh razor blade, if it’s a large window you may need to swap the blade out (for a new one)half way through.
- Use a rag and gently (and carefully) wipe off the blade any time it gets too much gunk on it.
- Apply even pressure. I think that working in 4 to 6 inch strips is the best way to apply even pressure. Otherwise the higher your arm goes up the harder it gets to press as hard as you need to.
- Start somewhere in the center and work your way outwards. When working my way outward, I tried to get about ¼” or so away from the edge of the window and then went around and cleaned up the edges.
- I sat on a step stool in the window well…crouching for that long is too rough…plus it took me months to give myself a pep-talk to climb into spider country, so the stool was helpful in making sure I didn’t have a creepy crawly climb on me.
