Quick Update – Windows Conquered

Hey y’all, I just wanted to give you a quick update.   Remember I was talking about needing to wash my windows?  I not only finished the windows, I conquered them like a boss.  I strapped into my gear, and scaled the side of the house like a beast.   Here is a quick pic of me washing the windows.

Window Washing

Just kidding that is not me, but I like being a jokester.

I wanted to share with you the recipe that I used to make my homemade window washing solution.  It turned out great, the windows are sparkling like never before, and the solution was so easy and inexpensive to make.  I loved the outcome so much I wanted to share it with you as well.

Window Cleaning Recipe

  • ¼ cup – white vinegar
  • ¼ cup – ammonia
  • ½ bucket – warm water

I used a normal squeegee and this window washing thing…not sure what it was called, but I picked it up at the local Home Depot.   So here are the steps for how I washed these windows.  You can follow these, or you can live on the edge and make up your own routine.

  1. I started by cleaning all of the upstairs inside windows
  2. Next I used the extension ladder and washed the upstairs outside windows.
  3. Then I washed the lower floor, inside windows
  4. Lastly I washed the outside lower floor windows

I chose this patter for a reason.  I started inside and upstairs, just because I wanted to start somewhere.

Then my thought process was that if washed the upstairs outside windows the water could drip on the windows below and it would not matter since I would wash those last.

I then went inside to wash the lower floor windows while I let the outside dry, just so if there were any drips left, they would dry while I was inside cleaning.

And then of course I finished by washing the lower floor windows on the outside.   It all worked perfect, and the windows were sparkling clean.
