Window washing is one of those home maintenance tasks that many homeowners abandon fairly quickly. Considering how even a speck of dirt can be visible on a squeaky clean window, window washing can understandably feel like a waste of time. But if you knew that there were a quick and easy way to keep your windows clear and sparkling, would that encourage you to clean them twice a year as recommended?
One of the greatest time-savers in the window washing world is the multi-purpose squeegee, which is not only more efficient but also more effective than newspapers, paper towels, and other items used to clean windows. After giving a window a thorough washing with a strip applicator and a dishwashing-detergent-based cleaner, use your squeegee to clear the window of soap suds. Hard-to-reach areas near the frames can be dried with a soft, clean rag.
