Why does newspaper fall short in glass cleaning? Another myth debunked!

As summer rolls in and sunlight streams through your windows, it's the perfect time to tackle those streaks and smudges for a clearer view. Many swear by using newspaper for cleaning glass, believing it's the secret to streak-free shine. But is this age-old advice really the best approach? Let's separate myth from fact when it comes to achieving pristine windows.

Myth: Newspaper is the best material for cleaning glass.

For generations, newspaper has been touted as the go-to material for achieving sparkling windows. The belief was that its absorbency and texture make it ideal for lifting dirt and grime without leaving streaks behind. However, this traditional method comes with its drawbacks.

Fact: Newspapers may leave ink residue on glass.

Contrary to popular belief, newspapers can transfer ink onto glass surfaces, leaving unsightly streaks and smudges. This can be particularly noticeable on light-colored window frames or when cleaning large windows where ink residue becomes more apparent.

Microfiber and Cotton: Superior Alternatives for a Streak-Free Shine

If not newspaper, then what? Microfiber cloths and 100% cotton cloths emerge as superior alternatives for achieving crystal-clear windows without the risk of ink stains. Here's why:

1. Microfiber Cloths: These modern cleaning marvels are designed to attract and trap dust, dirt, and even the smallest particles. Their ultra-fine fibers create a high-density weave that ensures effective cleaning and polishing of glass surfaces. Unlike newspapers, microfiber cloths leave no lint or residue behind, offering a streak-free finish with minimal effort. 

2. 100% Cotton Cloths: Similarly, cotton cloths provide a gentle yet effective cleaning solution for windows. Their absorbent nature helps to lift and remove dirt and grime without leaving streaks or lint. When paired with a quality glass cleaner like Speed Cleaning Blue Juice, cotton cloths ensure a streak-free shine that enhances your view indoors and out.
