Window Cleaning Tools

A big bucket
Glass wiper – (available at sanitary ware stores)
Window detergent – You should use a special type of window cleaner or a suitable safety agent for this job. Because if you use the wrong type of detergent, it can leave traces of dirt on the windows, while using the right one will dehumidify mold on windows and prevent mold on the wall.
Cleaning brush – A specialized tool for window scrubbing with a large sponge attached to the tip. Of course, regular sponge is fine, but if you have to clean a lot of windows, you should buy a dedicated cleaning brush to do the job, which will be a lot easier for you!

Steps To Clean The Windows
First, clear the window area.
Start cleaning the inside of the windows, because normally it is always dirtier outside.
Remember to spread towels or old clothes on the floor around the windows to absorb water and avoid slipping.
Pour some detergent into a bucket of warm water according to the instructions on the product label. The washing liquid should have lots of soap bubbles.
Dip a cleaning sponge into the bucket.
Scrub the glass thoroughly from top to bottom. Remember not to miss the corners.
Use the glass wiper to reach all corners of the window. Hold the glass wiper firmly, clean the windows horizontally, from side to side. After each trail, use a dry cloth to blot the glass to remove dirt and water.
Wipe out excess water and soap.
Do the same with the outside of the window.
Ensuring safety when cleaning your windows
For windows that are high, it’s better to call a professional to clean them.
If you want to clean the windows yourself, check to see if the ladder you’re going to climb is strong and ask someone to hold the ladder as you climb!

Always remember not to clean the window under direct sunlight, as the sun will dry out the water very quickly so it will leave nasty stains.
