How do I remove bird poop from my windows?
Firstly, has anyone ever figured out how birds manage it? I mean, the windows are vertical (and often covered by a sash) and the poop comes from….underneath. So how, exactly does the poop leave a bird traveling in a downwards direction, and then suddenly switch and travel horizontally to adorn your window? It’ll forever be a mystery to me….
The easiest way is to remove the offending poopage is to use a steam cleaning machine. Follow our simple directions below and you’ll be on your way to glistening, poop-free windows once again!
1 Fill the steam cleaning machine with water to the marked level on the machine’s holding tank. Plug in the machine to allow the water to heat up and become vapor.
2 Hold the steam cleaning wand in your hand. Pull the trigger or push the button to activate the steam. This is the exciting bit!
3 As the steam vapor pours out of the wand, run it across the window’s width. This loosens any ickiness and dried-on bird poop on the window’s surface. Work down the window until you have fully cleaned and sanitized it with steam.
4 Using a soft, clean, dry, microfiber cloth, immediately wipe the window down, starting at the top and working down horizontally. If your cloth becomes too wet, use a new dry cloth. Continue wiping the window until it is dry.
5 Repeat with the outside of the window.
If you don’t have access to a steam cleaning machine, the second best way would be to use a bucket of warm water with a few drops of dishwashing detergent and a squirt of white vinegar. Use a soft, clean, microfiber cloth soaked in the cleaning solution and hold it on the birdy poop for a few seconds to loosen it. Wipe any solids off with a clean side of the cloth. Wipe clean with a clean, damp chamois cloth. And hey presto, good as new!
