Default 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.

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

I'm sorry to hear that Chris.

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