So you look out your windows and what do you see? Do you notice what is on the outside or are you stuck looking at finger prints, pet nose marks, and the general dirt and dust that builds up on the glass over time?
Do you look at all of the windows in the same light? ha ha. What I mean is do you handle low windows the same as high ones? Are you an inside only washer or do you tackle the outside as well? Are you left with streaks that no matter what you try you just can’t seem to remove?
If you are looking for great advice you are not going to find it as while I have tried many things, I am still not good at window washing. I find it tedious and frustrating when the next time the sun shines in that I still have those streaks!
I have been told that you have to be prepared. Gather cleaner, clean towels that have not been in softner agents. I have been told old newsprint works good. Paper towels are great too, but I have wasting another tree. I have bought a squeegee, a step ladder, I try to have everything near, I have tried washing them when the sun is not shining on them warming the glass drying the streaks on. Nothing seems to work for me. Oh and always have a razor blade to scrape off any paint, bugs, bird ____. Well you get the point.
I guess this has turned into a blog post of what not to do. I am counting on each of you to share with me what really works.
I have the type of windows that tip in for easy cleaning. That is supposed to make it easier. Not so sure its easy but I would love to hear any tips that you successful window washers might have to share with me. Why? Because I love looking out and seeing the brilliant outdoor colors.
Help me please!
