When did you last clean your windows?

Recommended Posts

I have the useful Kärcher thingy as well but I rarely manage more than twice or thrice per year ... This helps me getting it done every time: Van Morrison - Cleaning Windows. 🙂

This thread is getting me motivated.  Haven't thought about cleaning the windows for months.

 

In the U.S. we cleaned windows twice a year, but we  removed screens and installed "storm windows" in the fall and took them down in the spring and installed the screens, so we could open our regular windows.  Was a good time to clean 'em while we had out the ladder and Hubby worked up his courage to climb the ladder to the second floor with the heavy storm windows, while I was on the ground, holding the ladder steady and keeping track of the inventory of cleaning supplies, storm windows and screens. 

 

He also cleaned the gutters at the same time and I swear he deliberately threw the masses of nearly frozen leaves on me and not on the tarp I'd spread on the ground to collect the muck. 

 

By comparison life is much, much easier here!

clean them just enough for my binoculars.  The neighbor is very attractive.  so hot that i ended up painting the windows black, except for my stalking station.

Of course, the obvious reason, not to clean, is to develop an ecosystem either side of the glass to develop. Encourage those little spiders to do their stuff and sort out the mozzies.

It's just not a good thing to clean windows up here in Isaan. It can lead to all sorts of problems.

 

One being, of course, that we can be accused of looking out of them at any bits of fluff that happen to be passing. And another reason is the opposite. Thais, with their G4 mobile phones, sneaking up to the bedroom window and filming that special sex technique that we could be engaged in. All over facebook. Military visiting. Villagers gathering. News on TVForum. No, not for me.

 

But of course, the most basic reason is that I just can't be bothered.

Had some uninvited guests rummaging around while taking the dog to vet's, so in aftermath missus wanted to make us feel like prisoners, or was it secure - can't remember x)
