Use your wet mop
Rub the mop wet with detergent solution onto the window glass, until you are sure the sticky grim and stubborn marks are gone. If some marks don’t go with continuous rubbing, use steel wool or fine bronze, a squint of elbow grease and lots of soapy water on the surface.
Time for the squeegee
Yu must know the right way of holding a squeegee before you start cleaning the window using the tool. Place you thumb in the mid of the top and side of its handle. Now set it at an angle of 45 degrees to the glass, applying optimum pressure on the window pane while you clean it.
Wipe the water off
Clean the excess water on the window edges using the squeegee. Any leftover watermarks in the centre can be wiped off using a micro-fiber cloth.
Clean the sills, frames and tracks
You wipe the frames, tracks and sills clean, use a clean towel or a sea sponge. This way you can prevent any drips and runs on the glass surface from the top sill.
