Wash Windows Like The Pro's

Have your ever wanted to clean your windows like the pros? Now you can! I washed windows professionally for over eight years.

I am going to give you step by step instructions.

Tools Needed

* 8" Squeegee
* Sponge
* Bucket with hot water
* Paper Towels
* Dish Soap


Preparing for your first window. 1 ounce of dish soap per 2 gallons of hot water. ( The water needs to be hot enough for your hands to stand it. But not hot enough to scald you.)

After your water is ready, take your squeegee and sponge and place them in the bucket, take your paper towels and go to your first outside window. (it is better to practise on an outside window first, then work your way to the inside.)


The weather plays a big part on your ability to wash the window. Test your window first. Take your sponge and wring it out a bit, and put it on the window, you want a wet soapy window. Wait a minute and see how quickly it evaporates off the window. If it evaporates quickly then apply more of soapy water.


After you have determined how much soapy water you need on your window, then put the soapy water on the entire window. Make sure to scrub any bad spots with the sponge, until it comes clean.

Removal of dirty water

Take your squeegee, place it in the middle of the window at the top and pull it to the right corner of the window, and start moving it downwards towards the bottom of the window. (you want to hold the squeegee against the window to where the rubber blade touches the window. Not any part of the handle.)

Now do the same on the other side.

Now to the middle, dip your squeegee into your bucket, make sure your rubber blade is wet. Start your squeegee at the top of the middle and arch it in an upward movement. Do the arch motion until you have reached the bottom of the window.

After the window is complete, take a piece of paper towel, put it around your index finger and wipe all around the edges. (do not wipe the bottom edge.)

When you have master this, you can wash windows like a Pro!
