Window Washing

Post by KarmaDoodle »

I just washed our outside windows for the first time in months (least favorite chore) and used the xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx for the first time. Has anyone else tried this yet? It was so easy - spray the window, wipe it with the cleaning pad and then rinse it off. It didn't take long at all and didn't leave streaks!

I just use the hose as I can't reach the windows.

I always use warm water with a dash of vineger and meths. It cleans degreases and does not leave streaks. Its also very very cheap.

Haha, I need to find someone to wash my windows too! That would make the task much more manageable :) The is great because it's on a long pole so I could easily reach the high windows and not use a ladder. Carrying the ladder from window to window is the worst part for me.

I have 3rd floor windows and cleaning them is a challenge. Ive climbed up to the top rung of a ladder with an extended sponge/squegee and its daunting. Ill try this new product but I still cant wipe. Spraying and rinsing will have to suffice.

Thank you,

Tilt in windows would be great! That would make it so simple.

I was wondering what meths are too....
