Let The Summer Sun In

With summer finally here - I want to let the sunshine in! What's the best way to clean filthy windows outside?
Betty, Edmonton

Dear Betty,
Firstly, you should remove any excess dirt and grime from the windows. Do this with a watering hose or a pail filled with lots of fresh clean water and a capful of dish soap. Once you have removed the surface dirt you are ready to clean the windows to a streak-free shine. Here are several options to consider:

1. A good commercial cleaner (with ammonia) and newspaper does a wonderful job.
2. A solution of 50% water and 50% vinegar is great! Spray this onto the window and then use either newspaper or microfiber cloth to wipe the window dry, thus avoiding streaks.
3. A pail fill of warm, clean water with a capful of dish soap will also do the job. Use a sponge to wash the window and then use a squeegee to leave the glass crystal clean.
