Things You'll Need

  • ammonia, dish soap or vinegar
  • Paper towels
  • Squeegees
  • Sponges
  • Old Newspapers
  • Buckets
    • 1

      Prepare a cleaning solution of either a capful of ammonia or four to six drops of liquid dish soap in 2 gallons of water or 1 cup of vinegar in1 quart of water. If using soap, use as little as possible to avoid streaking.

    • 2

      Dip a sponge into the solution, allowing the sponge to absorb just enough water to cover the window without flooding it.

    • 3

      Wash the surface of the window with the sponge, paying special attention to the sides and corners of the window frame, where dirt and grime tend to build up.

    • 4

      Dip a squeegee into a bucket of clean water.

    • 5

      Press the squeegee lightly into the surface of the window, starting at the top and pulling down vertically, stopping a few inches before the bottom of the window.

    • 6

      Wipe off the squeegee with a paper towel.

    • 7

      Press the squeegee down the area of the window directly beside the one you just cleaned, stopping at the same place.

    • 8

      Wipe off the squeegee with a paper towel.

    • 9

      Continue this process until the entire surface of the window except the final few inches at the bottom has been cleaned.

    • 10

      Pull the squeegee horizontally across the bottom section of the window and wipe the squeegee off with a paper towel.

    • 11

      Wipe off the water at the bottom of the window frame - where a great deal of moisture has by now collected - with a paper towel.
