Window Cleaning
 
Any suggestions?

I have quite a few windows with deposits building up.

Spray down then hit them with Windex, or just power wash them with an additive?

I am wondering if they make an additive for a pressure washer that will leave windows spot free?

I don't know. I was thinking about that.

It seems if the don't they should. One of the drying additives you add to your washer would work.

At least I think it would.

Then you could get second floor windows from down below at least for the rinse part.

I have had good luck with "powdered dish washing detergent".
It has a disinfectant, bleach and a sheeting action/dryer in it.
Mix it with water and wash with a soft brush and rinse it off.
Not perfect but pretty good.
$1 a box at the dollar store.
Plus it does not hurt plants.
I use it for washing my camper, cleaning the pool/hot tub filter and many other things.

i typically use Windex as a additive added to the washer still needs to be squeegeed

Has anyone thought about adding some jet dri to some water for the pressure washer?

What's the concentration?

I wish I still had a working pressure washer, those were the days.......:(

I'm sorry to hear that Chris.

I'm borrowing one from a friend this weekend. I always have fun with power washers.
