WE all know how frustrating it can be when every time you clean your mirrors and windows they’re left covered in streaks.

下一个, you want to wipe down the entire mirror or window in a gentle side to side motion using a cotton cloth.
Make sure you keep the pattern and direction the same when wiping the surface.
The key to leaving your surfaces streak-free is to use a microfibre cloth to dry your mirror afterwards.
If you want your mirror to keep its smudge-free shine for longer you can also spray one pump of shaving foam onto a microfibre cloth and gently buff the surface.

Why is my mirror and window streaky after cleaning?
一些 supermarket glass cleaners leave a waxy residue which can actually cause more streaks over time.
