The best ways to remove bird poo from glass

Walking outside and finding that your car or conservatory windows have been covered in bird droppings is never the best thing. Whilst some call it good luck, most of us will call it an absolute pain. But what are the best ways to clear it up? We’re here to help…
Don’t leave it
The best way to clear up bird poo, or guano, from your windows is to do it as soon as you can – as soon as you’ve seen it if possible. That way, you can prevent it from drying, saving you a, even more, difficult clean up job! Act quickly and your windows will be sparkling again in no time.
Don’t scrub
If you’ve noticed the bird droppings a little too late so that they’ve dried, don’t worry because we’ve got some tips for that too! Firstly, ignore your initial instincts to start scrubbing or scratching the dried-up waste away. It’s only going to be more effort for you and may damage the glass it’s on. Your best bet is to loosen and soften it…
Soak it
Soaking it is a certain way to help loosen the bird droppings after they’ve dried. Grab a bucket of warm water and a sponge and begin to soak the area by holding it down for a few moments. You’ll start to notice that the mess will soften and become easier to wipe away. Keep patient, it will be a much swifter job this way.
Wipe it
Now that it’s loosened, it’s time to get rid of it! Keep the warm water that you used to soak the bird poo, and add a little bit of soap. Take the sponge and rub it gently over the area – this should get rid of the most of the mess! If you find that there’s a little bit left, get your hands on a plastic scraper and gently remove the rest of it of your windows.
All over
Finally, to make sure that your car or conservatory windows are left with no soapy streaks, clean your whole window thoroughly.
