Introduction: Lazy Person's Window Cleaning Method

Picture of Lazy Person's Window Cleaning Method

First, buy the right stuff. It'll make your life easier. Also, realize that this is for outside windows only. Try it inside and you'll make a big mess.

You'll need an extendable pole with a 16 inch window scrubber to fit. Also a wallpaper tray, some dishwasher rinse agent and dish soap.

Make sure your windows are closed and hose them down to remove loose dirt. This also cleans the frames and screens.

Fill the tray with warm water and add a generous squirt of both rinse agent and soap. wet the scrubber and apply the solution to the windows. Then just hose them off and let them dry.

Hints: Do one window at a time. Don't clean them in direct sunlight. Hose off the solution immediately. If you are a fuss budget, you may want to buy a 16 inch squeegee and squeegee them dry, but that's only if you enjoy making work for yourself.

With practice, you'll be able to clean all your windows pane-lessly!

Actually, if you put the solution in a spray bottle, the type that attaches to your hose,( Like a weed killer bottle,) you can spray the solution right through the screens onto the windows, then rinse with clear water from your hose, you can clean both the screens and windows at the same time. It does a passable job if you're not too fussy. I use that method for the up high windows. For the lower windows I do remove the screens.Regardless, it saves a lot of work.

I like the idea of cleaning my windows pane-lessly and think I've figured out what the right stuff is. At what point are the screens removed from the window? Thanks.
