Yes, I have them, clean sparkly windows, and I used no window cleaner and no ladder. “How is this possible?” you gasp. Well, I found a nifty product made by Casabella, the Outdoor Microfiber Extendable Window Washer.
Isn’t it beautiful? The pole extends so I don’t have to stand on a ladder to reach the top of my windows from the outside. After wetted with plain ol’ water, the microfiber cleaner head pulls the dirt off the window, grabs it, and keeps it locked in the wonderful little microfibers. Then the squeegee pulls the water off leaving the windows squeeky clean. And when that pole is a bit cumbersome, simply screw off the microfiber/squeegee head for a handheld model.
The microfibers easily rinse clean with plain ol’ water after getting quite filthy. The only tricky thing was figuring out what order to wash the windows. By trial and error, I learned what pane to wash first so I wouldn’t drip or run on another pane. This may seem quite simple, but it really depends on how your windows open and function. Okay, I just wasn’t thinking.
A bonus trick I learned, just rub the screen with the microfiber head and it comes clean in a jiffy too!
My extremely hunky husband will be home late tonight. Won’t he be shocked tomorrow when the windows are clean for the second time in 5 years. With this handy tool, the time in between cleanings will never be that long again.
