Windows Cleaning - what to use?

Postby tankee » Tue Jul 05, 2011 12:54 pm

hi

I have a panel of windows that I cant clean as my hands can only reach part of it. There are about 2 feet more that I can't reach. I know there are various windows cleaning tools in the market, but I do not which one to buy.

Would any kind parent here recommend a tool to me that proven to works?

:sad:

you need a squeegee. i have seen cleaners using a long one to clean windows but am unable to find one with long handle in diy shop and supermarket.

i use the magic clean stick with wet/dry wipes to reach areas too high for me but it is not so effective.

am thinking of using a bamboo stick with a cloth wrapped round it to clean the area.

I cleaned my windows using your recommendation just now while it was raining heavily.

apart from some stubborn spots that just refused to go off, it works !

thanks
