To start with the cleaning, you have to put the cleaning solution in the bucket and then, with the help of a mop or sponge lather the windows. Once you have rinsed the windows, use a squeegee to get rid of extra water. Using a microfiber cloth to polish the window.

the Right Cleaning Solutions
Not all cleaning solutions are good for your windows. Some may be quite harsh and also, attract dust. You must also refrain from using normal tap water that can leave behind streaky stains as it contains hard minerals.
the Wrong Cloth
The other common mistake that people make while cleaning their windows is using the wrong cloth for drying windows after cleaning. Most clothes leave behind fibers and hence, ruin the whole cleaning process. Microfiber is the best cloth you can use for the drying process.
When you are using soap or soapy water for the cleaning process, you might not always be successful in getting rid of the harder dirt. And that’s why you have a scraper. But using a scraper is not everyone’s cup of tea. You might not be able to use it properly and may end up scratching the glass. If you are not sure about using the scraper, you better leave it for professionals.
Considering the Temperature
If you are waiting for a hot, sunny day to do the cleaning, you better drop the plan. Too much sunshine will dry up the window too quickly from section to section and leave streaks and marks that get set in before rinsing. You better wait for a cloudy day to do the cleaning.
