10 Musts for Spring Cleaning – The Best Way to Wash Windows
The weather may not be cooperating with you for washing windows, but be ready for it with a window washing plan. There are many different methods for washing your windows, but this is the easiest/quickest/most effective way I’ve found to clean windows – inside and out.
Grab your cleaning bucket and let’s get started!
I have had the most success with this simple window cleaning solution (I use these dishwasher packs and it works just fine to open them and scoop out a teaspoon for the solution):
First of all I lay out all my supplies on a bath towel underneath the windows where I’m going to start.
The simple process?
I’ve also found that a couple other tools help in the process of easy window washing:
Want to purchase these tools? They’re mostly Casabella brand – you can find them at Williams-Sonoma and I’ve found some separately at my local grocery store or online at Amazon.
I’ve been re-working my Pinterest boards to make them super user-friendly…if you aren’t already following me, you should!

I probably should be cleaning my windows soon! Especially now that its no longer freezing outside and the sun is shining *Not a pretty sight!*
you posted this article just in my time of need, cleaning windows are usually the most frustrating task for me aha (:
I think that dishwasher detergent is pretty toxic and since I have young children I don’t really want to use it. Have you had any success with vinegar?

I use a non-toxic dishwasher detergent but you could also use about a teaspoon of liquid dishsoap if you prefer.

I have found that if you use a dry paper towel to wipe out the sills and casings that the dirt will rub off and you don’t have a muddy mess . Do this first before you start the windows. Just use a vacumn nozzle to clean out the dirt.
could you do this with the shower glass
