If you want to decorate your household windows to help celebrate holidays, seasons or “just because,” window clings are the answer. These vinyl clings come in every shape and design imaginable. To apply them to a window, all you do is place them against the glass and gently wipe across them. They stay in place because of static. After much use, sometimes window clings lose their holding power, but you make window clings stick again. Does this Spark an idea?
1. Put the stopper in one side of the kitchen sink. Turn the faucet on and run a couple inches of warm water into the sink. Place a couple drops of dishwashing liquid into the water and swish it around with your hand. Place the window clings into the soapy water. Swish them around gently.
2. Stop-up the other side of the sink. Turn the faucet on and run a few inches of cool water into the sink.
3. Remove the window clings from the soapy water one by one. The soap will have removed any window cleaner residue, dust, dirt and grime they had on them.
4. Place the window clings in the cool water. Swish them around gently to rinse them clean so they will stick again.
5. Lay the window clings out on a clean towel and allow them to dry.
6. Pour a 1/2 cup of vinegar into a spray bottle. Fill the water with tap water and place the top back on. Shake the bottle to mix it.
7. Spray the glass you’re going to put window clings on with the diluted vinegar. Wipe the area dry with a clean towel. This will remove any dust, dirt, grime and window cleaner residue so the window clings will stick again.
