The right ways combined with the correct equipment is the only way to get those windows sparkling. You can use all the man power you want put unless the right tools are there, you will not make much headway.


For example, using a normal piece of cloth will result in the mirror being electrically charged. That charge in turn, attracts more dust and dirt particles which is why windows get instantly dirty after you clean them.

They come in different sizes so regardless of how big or small your windows are, you can buy the right size and get started right away. This can be a fun workout for the young ones so get them involved too and just have fun!
