  • Newspaper is works really well. Spray the window and start in a corner and left to right and then up and down. That's how i have always done it.

  • The guy who comes to our office to do them professionally said to use dish soap (he isn't allowed to say what brand but he hinted towards Dawn) and hot or warm water. He also said to use a microfiber towel to apply it to the winder [just enough to clean it but not to cause it to run everywhere] and a sqeegy (sp? lol - such a silly word) to wipe it off cleanly. Then you can use a dry towel to clean up the remainder that is left. :)

    He said windex just pushes the grease and such around and doesn't comepletely clean like what he does.

  • Inside or outside windows? on your house? on your car? Windex and paper towels or you can use news paper. Its easy spray the window and wipe. Not on a sunny day or in the sun as the spray will evaporate before you get a chance to wipe it and the dirt off. If you dont want to use chemicals and want a natural /green source use vinegar & water mixture (1 cup of white vinegar to 3 cups water) Easy cheesy! LOL! Have fun. hey, ya wanta do mine too?

  • I use a mix of white vinegar & water and use old newspapers. The white vinegar/water mix is cheap & cuts grease very well, and the newspaper doesn't leave streaks. You can do this for both the inside & the outside of your windows, too.
