You open your curtains and discover that your children have plastered stickers all over the windows. Not only that, but they've also gotten sticky hand prints on them. You want to scream but decide to look for easy ways to get them cleaned instead. You're in luck because there are lots of natural ways to remove the stickers and get your windows crystal clear again. Here's a handy guide to cleaning your windows.

Removing The Stickers

The first thing you'll need to do is get rid of the stickers. You could sit there scraping them, but that will leave a sticky residue that's going to be tough to get off. Instead, use this all natural method that will get rid of the stickers and the sticky residue.

Clean Up The Sticky Hand Prints

Now that the stickers have been removed from your windows, it's time to make quick work of the sticky hand prints your kids left all over the windows. Don't reach for the store bought cleaners that might not get rid of the sticky mess. Instead, you can make your own window cleaner that will get rid of any hand prints your kids are going to leave.
