In case you’re wondering…..

  • Q: Do I ever spray a window or two and wipe clean or do I always use this method?
  • A: I spray a window or part of a window ALL THE TIME.  This method is for seasonal window washing, when you have a house full of windows to wash and you want to move it.

  5. Thanks for sharing this advice on spring cleaning your windows! I had no idea that the best way to clean windows is with a sponge and squeegee! It sounds like my company might need to get a couple of those so that we can have cleaner windows in the office. However, this also looks like it might take a bit of time. It might be a better idea if we get a window cleaning service.

  6. Thanks for posting this step-by-step guide for washing windows. Dipping the sponge in cleaning solution first seems like a good idea. I’ve tried spraying my glass before using a sponge to clean it, so your method might be better. I’ll try that the next time I clean my windows before using the squeegee.

    I will have to try this solution for window cleaning customers who are picky about chemicals. I’ve tried others that haven’t worked as well. Thanks!
