Removing the Cloudy Film from Old Windows

To clean old windows that have a cloudy film, use Easy Off oven cleaner or any other that has LYE in it. Wet the window pane with wet cloth and spray oven cleaner over area. Leave set a minute or so and wipe off. If the film is not entirely off then repeat or leave on a little longer. I got this tip from a professional window washer. He also stated that a fine steel wool and straight ammonia will also remove the cloudiness from window panes if it isn't inside a double insulated window.

Will this work if you're trying to remove hard water deposits from the outside sprinklers?

I tired the white toothpaste idea. My toothpaste was Arm & Hammer with baking soda. It worked like a charm. It's a bit pricey, so I'm going to try the rest of my windows with a cheaper toothpaste, and maybe a bit of baking soda too.

I tried the easy off method and it took the film right off! I watered down my windows, sprayed easy off, waited 3 min and then scrubbed them with a sponge... my windows look brand new! Thanks for the tip!
