When did you last clean your windows?

We have reversible friction hinges.

Meaning that cleaning the outside is easy from inside.

 

Madam (or her assistant) does them every couple of months.

 

They're a great idea, Crossy. Any idea where to buy them?

Ours were supplied by the window contractor (windows are custom made teak), but taking that photo to any of the bigger hardware places should get you a choice of size and price.

My rental on 6th floor - each pane 80 x 90 cm.  Very heavy windows, no way to reach around.  Have to completely remove windows from sliding tracks but too heavy for me.  Wonder if there are services available as the handyman around here not too reliable, may have the windows on the driveway underneath in 10,000 pieces by the time he finishes.

For those inaccessible places like tower blocks or even conservatory roofs you can of course get self cleaning glass.

its mega expensive and despite assurances by the manufacturer that it works, I don't think there were many takers.

 

I clean mine the good old fashioned way with some screwed up newspaper lightly dampened.

 

no drips, no rawks, its foolproof and a top quality finish.

the paper does however get shredded during the process.

Our house, like many homes,  has metal grilles fitted outside (for security reasons), which are firmly screwed to the walls

Blimey!!!  where do you live?

I often leave the keys in the car, the front  door  open all night and a "welcome one and all" sign on the front gate.......ok I  lied about the sign

Windows! I am just starting to contemplate whether or not to wait another month to wash my bed sheets.😎

Just wait until theyve  stuck to you......then have that monthly  shower as  well😋

From the outside maybe every 2 months , the windows are not easy to reach from the top floor of a condo.  Inside every week.

I don't mind cleaning the windows, but I can't find ''amoniac'' in Pattaya.
