Cleaning Windows

Yesterday Flo cleaned the inside of our French widows. Today

Jackie cleaned the outside. Becky popped out to investigate.

This evening we all dined on oven fish and chips, onion rings, mushy peas, and baked beans with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Merlot


  1. Since replacing my study curtains with blinds, I realise an urgent need for cleaning the windows (goof for bird watching as it is upstairs!). These are delightful photographs.

  2. Well done family! Spotless… until Ellie comes along and leaves more finger marks! I bought a Karcher window washer a few years ago. Another best idea buy. I usually need to search for it and generally find it in Victoria’s utility room!
    I recently asked my lovely window cleaner to begin cleaning the inside of my kitchen windows, including the French doors. Finger marks from small grandchildren and doggy nose marks soon build up.

  3. It looks like fun here, but windows and mirrors are not my forte. No matter the cleaner or how many times I clean them – they stay streaky.

  4. Washing windows on the outside in January is not something that we would do in Maine, even in this time of climate change. 😉 Lovely to have clean windows.

  5. I love clean windows and Jackie’s method with soapy water, lots of elbow-grease and a good rinse and polish is the best way to do it. It is amazing how quickly my windows get fingerprints on them, and no children and animals to blame either! 😀

    1. Now you being accused of wasting money is a real turn up. 🙂 Thanks very much, Andrew

  6. I have a line from a song running through my head … “oh, you should see the things I see, when I’m cleaning winders”. … oh who was it? … Ah, George Formby. 😀

    1. Thanks very much, Widders. Had I not been struggling so much yo post this, I would have included a video of that

    1. We get them in tins from supermarkets. Navy also known as Haricot beans. Thank you very much, Lakshmi

  7. In theory my OH is responsible for window cleaning, in practice…….I end up paying someone to do all 10 floor to ceiling windows.
