Forget everything but a bucket of warm water and a few drops of dish soap. When used with a porous sponge, a good squeegee and dry towel for inside window seals, you can easily clean windows on both sides for a much improved view and additional solar heat for the cold winter months. Streak free! Chemical free! And cheap!

I like the Dawn, paper towel, squeegee tip given 10/19/2009 below best. Seems the simplest of steps and I know Dawn is used for bathing cats before competition shows. It's great!

I have found the easiest way to clean your windows is not with vinegar, or any store brought window cleaner. Take Dawn in the pump bottle and pump three times into a small bucket of water. Using a paper towel, wash the windows with the mixture of Dawn and water and use a squeegee to clean off the water. You will have the most perfect, clean windows without streaks every time. Try it, it works fantastic.
