How To Clean Your Windows

Your windows picked up a lot of dirt & grime over the winter.  If you want to really get them clean, get rid of the glass cleaner, paper towels and newspapers.   Use a small amount of dishwashing liquid in a bucket of warm, soapy water and a towel or sponge to wash the windows.  Squeegee them dry, using a reverse S motion and wiping off the blade with a lint-free towel (such as a diaper) after each pass.  Use a damp, wrung-dry chamois to wipe the edges and corners.  If you have small glass panes, you can use a hacksaw to cut the squeegee down to size.  Really stubborn spots can be removed by making a paste of household cleansers Zud or Barkeeper’s Friend, which contain oxalic acid and won’t scratch the glass.  Just rub it on the spots with a damp towel and wipe off.  Ideally, you should clean your windows every spring and fall, and let the sun shine in!
