No matter where you live, you most likely have windows, as well as mirrors and other glass. Dirty windows are one of the parts of your home that draw the most unwanted attention. Whether your windows are getting dirty from sprinklers outside or just the dust in the air, your windows can use a good cleaning every once in a while. Many people hire professional window washers for the windows in their homes and businesses. However, window washing is a chore that you can do yourself.
Rags drenched in all-purpose cleaners are not the best way to wash your windows. This can leave streaks, which almost defeats the purpose of trying to clean your windows in the first place. Your window washing preference will likely depend on the size of the windows you are trying to clean.
Whichever method you use, you should be able to get your windows clean. If possible, it's best to clean your windows when it is not too sunny outside (but not rainy, either). The sun can dry the window cleaner before you have a chance to wipe it completely, which can cause streaking. Although you can often clean your windows, it is often wise and less dangerous to hire someone to clean outside windows that are too high to reach, such as windows of a second-story.
