Cleaning your Amerimax Windows might seem easy, but there is a right way to clean them. Although you might think that you can just put some cleaner and use tools to get the job done, it is not so easy.

Why You Need Clean Windows

To enjoy longer days and be able to have more sunlight, you should wash your Amerimax Windows at least a few times per year.

Choosing Your Products

  • Step 2: Add a few drops of liquid dish soap
  • Step 3: Place a large bath towel beneath the window. This is to catch any spills
  • Step 4: Take a clean microfiber cloth and go over the whole surface of the window. You can also use a sponge.

  • Step 6: Wipe the frame, as well as inside and outside.
  • Step 7: Spray the window fully with the vinegar and water solution. You can also use a commercial product like Windex. Another option is mixing one cap worth of ammonia with two gallons of water.
  • Step 8: Using a clean towel dry the window completely. If you do not have a towel another option is a black and white newspaper page.
