Do you love doing housework? If you answered No, then you are probably in the majority vote!
However I think if housework were easier we would enjoy it more. Like WASHING WINDOWS, what a pain!
Not anymore with this method. This is a tried and true method used by the professional window washers around the world. We want to teach you the secret to washing windows like a pro.
I cannot take credit for this discovery; however I can tell you that it works! In my opinion this is the best way for washing windows. A cleaning company shared this tip with me four years ago, I was using glass cleaner, vinegar and newspapers. Nothing I did completely cleaned the window. This is the only thing I use now.
Items Needed for Washing Windows
(All items except the Dawn were purchased at Dollar Tree)
- Dawn Dish Detergent
- Small Bowl or Bucket
- Scrubby Pads
- Absorbent Cloths
- Dirty Windows
Place a few drops of Dawn in your container with a couple inches of water.
For our friends not able to find in their countries, here is a link to Amazon where Dawn can be purchased. Be sure and look for the best price!
Dip the scrubby pad into the water and squeeze out.
Scrub the glass.
The Dawn along with the scrubby gets the dirt off and does not leave a residue.

Squeegee the window, starting at the top and working down, wiping off the “blade “each time with a cloth.
There are all types of Squeegees on the market. The better the quality, the less streaking and better clean.
Here is one from Amazon that is rated 5 stars and can be attached to an extension pole. They have all difference sizes and prices starting as low as just a couple of dollars….
Wipe around the edges to absorb any leftover water and dirt.
One Pane shiny and clean, look at the difference…AMAZING!!!!
