Let The Summer Sun In

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

Answer:
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.
