Oftentimes, people clean mirrors & glass with the standard window cleaner, however this usually leaves streaks, specks, dirt, & fog of cleaning chemicals behind. But why not try something more powerful & direct, & use Windex instead, a proven cleaning solution from the get-go? All you need is a new bottle – spray of it, along with a small cotton pad, & you're good to go. Scrub at it!
 
Because of these side effects, there is a better solution for cleaning your mirrors & glass. First off, go ahead & mix together one cup of white or distilled vinegar with one quart of warm water. Next, use newspaper as your cleaning cloth. Crumple the newspaper up into useable sizes. Then do a pre-cleaning with a cloth that is soft & non-abrasive, using plain water to remove any heavy dirt or marks. The next step is to dip the newspaper into the vinegar water solution & rub the paper in slow circles across the mirror. Make sure to cover the entire surface. Once this is complete, go over the wet areas with a dry portion of newspaper. This should leave the mirror dry & keep drip marks from drying onto the surface.

The first door screens were made from cheesecloth, which was once used to form & strain cheese. Today there are many varieties of door & window screens for you to choose from including: Fiberglass, pet-resistant, aluminum, retractable screens & solar protection. Choices are in abundance even specialty window screens like bronze, copper, brass & stainless-steel screening. Specialty screens will cost a little more but for that dream home experience, it could be exactly what you need.

Paper windows were used in ancient China & Japan. The first known people to use glass windows were the Romans around 100 AD. Glass became very common to use in the building of a house in England in the early 17th century; due to limits in industry & costs greased paper windows were used in America in the 1800s. Today we use glass windows to provide views, allow light in & maintain interior temperatures, with most building codes requiring double glazed windows to increase efficiency & reduce temperature transfer.
 
Sliding glass doors are great for any home to have, opening out into your garden or patio on a nice warm day to let in some air, while your sliding screen door protects you from insects or even wandering animals. Sliding doors or screens can become damaged by age & abuse. If you're having trouble opening or closing your sliding doors, inspecting for debris, & something as easy as a little soapy water or WD40 along the base of the door can improve the sliding action. If you feel ready to tackle a DIY project like improving the sliding door action at your home, you can find In the event of the door coming off its track, cracking/shattering

How do you clean window screens that don't come out?
 
To clean window screens that cannot be easily removed, first dust the screens. Then, using a rag & a solution of warm water & dish soap (just a dab will do you), wipe down the screen in multiple passes & allow it to air dry on its own.
