Doing It Yourself
If you own a one-story residence, and you want to clean your windows yourself, let us give you some advice. Don’t tackle the job with Windex and a roll of paper towels. You’ll be working much too hard. If you want spotless windows, you need the right equipment.
It’s easy to find many of the same tools that professionals use right on Amazon.com. Your complete set of tools should include:
- a good, solid rectangular bucket
- 2 squeegees – 14” is a good size and you need a smaller one that you can just hold in your hand
- a scrubber – some squeegees have a scrubber attached to them
- an extension pole
- microfiber cloths
- a window track cleaning brush
Mixing Your Cleaning Solution
A simple solution of water vinegar and dish washing soap is all you need to clean your windows. Here’s a “bucket-size” recipe:
- 2 quarts of water
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 2 teaspoons dish detergent
Getting to Work
First select a day (or an hour of the day) that is not too hot and follow these instructions:
- Mix up your cleaning solution in your bucket. Then head outside with your equipment.
- Attach the scrubber to the extension pole and dip it in the bucket of the solution.
- Scrub the window.
- Before the window has a chance to dry, spray it off with a garden hose.
- Attach the wider squeegee to the extension pole and wipe the water off the window. (Tip: Using a combined squeegee/scrubber eliminates attaching and detaching tools to and from the extension pole.)
- If necessary, use the narrower squeegee to clean up water tracks or use a microfiber cloth to dry the water tracks.
