How to Make Window Clings Stick Good

Window clings are used to add color and decoration to windows. They stick to windows much like a sticker would, but they do not leave sticky residue when removed. In order for the clings to stick, the window must be clean as even a thin layer of dust can prevent it from sticking. Once washed, a cling should stick to a window until it is manually removed.

Step 1

Moisten a clean washcloth with vinegar. A plain 5 percent white vinegar is all that is necessary.

Step 2

Wipe the window clean with the washcloth. The vinegar will effectively remove any dust or dirt from the window.

Step 3

Wipe the window dry with dish towel. Dish towels are best to use as they are less likely to leave cloth fibers on the glass.

Step 4

Hold a finger under running water. Rub your damp finger on the sticky side of the window cling. The small amount of moisture will help it stick to the window.
