How To Remove Fingerprints From Glass

A magnifying glass over a fingerprint

Picture this: It’s a beautiful, sunshiny day. The curtains are open just enough to let the gorgeous, natural light beam into the room. You sit down with your morning cup of coffee and gaze out the window at your picturesque backyard. The children are playing, the puppy’s running and the hummingbirds are feeding. You'd love to sit back and enjoy the moment, but there are fingerprints all over the windows.

These aren’t your ordinary, run-of-the-mill fingerprints. These fingerprints are vicious. They’re practically shouting at you and insulting your house-cleaning abilities! These insidious fingerprints cut you to your very core. With a huff, you’re determined to take out the intruder. As your coffee cools, you struggle to find your window-cleaning supplies. What once was a glorious morning has now turned in to a frustrating, fingerprinted mess.
