    I clean the windows of a night time and use windex with a microfibre cloth. I've never had streaky windows

    I just got an enjo window cleaning set and its amazing. Not cheap but no ongoing costs and I just use water. Also can attach it to the mop pole to clean the tall windows you can't reach.

    My dad used to be a window cleaner when younger and he says warm water with a drop of detergent and a micro fibre cloth then use a rubber squeegee to dry. But never wash the windows in the midday heat or with sun directly on them it will never look totally clean

    Yep! Every month before I had DS2 now I have 2 under 2 and a 4 year old not so much! But I would use vinegar and a microfibre cloth

    Newspaper doesn't work like it used to when our mums were cleaning windows. The ink has changed and now doesn't clean streak free or leave that invisible film it used to that repels dirt.
    I use water with a drop or 2 of dish washing liquid then wipe down with a vinegar soaked cloth. Dries reasonably streak free. I do one rooms windows each day of the week ( I think I should change that and do them all on one day per week) so they never get really dirty.

    At work we use a glass cleaner and microfibre cloth. For extra dirty windows we spray the stuff on, scrub them with a white shower scrubber thingy, squeegee that off and the wipe off any little bits left. At home I don't bother until I have to move lol.

    When we built this house I put in lots of windows to catch the sea breezes ... downside lots and lots of windows to clean sea mist off ... sigh. So Noms send me some nesting urges so I get off my butt and try some of these tips on my windows!

    I keep a set upstairs and a set downstairs. I really rate them.
    Once a month? Surely you mean once a millennium?
    You are not invited to my house if you mean once a month 😉

    Self-flagellation. I agree.

    I use the microfiber cloth for cleaning the window with the glass cleaner chemical and it's a very useful way to clean the windows.
