Window cleaning! Why is it if you clean one side first, the other side always looks worse? No matter which side of the glass you start on ~ it’s always the same. Why do you have to do it twice to get all the little smudges and streaks out?

I'm thinking its best to just throw a rock through it and have it replaced!

Maybe you need a person on each side? Or a screen!

I just hate when that happens. Lol! Or...after you clean them and night falls you leave the kitchen light on by the window and get footprints from all those slimmy frogs with suction cup feet, 'cause their there eating the bugs attracted to the light.

My husband and I always clean the windows together. Him on one side and me on the other. Doing it that way works like a charm!

We clean our windows with vinegar and newspaper. I think that's why they always clean up so nice.

There must be something wrong with cleaning the inside first then the outside. However I’ve done the outside first before and then came inside to finish, but nothing ever works well. However after spending time going back and forth with the bucket and cleaning tools, I finally see things looking good ~ yep very nice job and they look good.

Then Mrs. Aks comes home and comments how nice they look as she pulls down the blinds and closes them so we can’t see outside or inside any longer.
