Easy Window Cleaning tip

 
With all of the rain we’ve had this year, my windows are a mess.  I’ve found an easy way to clean windows!

I love that my windows tip in for cleaning the outside, but they only tip in on the bottom half making the top outside window ummmmmm….hard to clean!

Last week I couldn’t stand my dirty windows any more, we had a dry beautiful day….perfect for window cleaning!

Want to know my secret for cleaning the outside of my windows that don’t tip in?

I use my Swiffer floor tool – wrap a few paper towels around it

spray the window with my cleaner – the use the Swiffer to reach outside and clean the upper half of my windows!

    What a great tip!! And it's coming at just the right time too – I told my husband this morning I wanted to clean the windows, but never figured out how to clean the top ones on the outside. Thanks for sharing!!

    That is such a great idea! So simple that I feel like an idiot for not thinking of it myself. Thanks for sharing!

    I was so glad to find a pin on Pinterest on Easy Window Cleaning! I have the same type windows and since they are too high off the ground and porch, I have been thinking about hiring someone to clean them. Now that I have discovered your solution, no way! I will do it myself!
    Thank you so much. Your blog is now listed on my Bookmarks.
