Hi Abers out there, as we have got lots of time on our hands currently (as we all have!), we thought we would clean the insides of our windows ... does anyone have any suggestions for the best cleaner to use ..... and what's the best sort of cloth to use - are those "e.cloths" any good? Wondered if there is solution of something that we could use instead of standard glass cleaners? Vinegar and water, perhaps .... Thanks, cheers, Chox.

I used to work in a greengrocers and all we ever used for the enormous pane of glass was a chamois leather cloth and hot water - nothing added!
Was always under the impression that vinegar should be included, but according to the shop owner, just the (rather) hot water was enough.
I use this stuff and a karcher. Amazon.co.uk User Recommendation I wash with cheapo microfibre towelling cloths
I have to say I do think it depends on the state of your windows and how often you clean them.
Fairy liquid and a micro fibre cloth.
white vinegar and water with a paper towel and dry with microfibre cloth

Thanks folks, we decided to take the bull by the horns and clean the back bedroom window - we used a couple of those e.cloths and some vinegar in water - got fantastic results ... other windows to be done in the coming days ... cheers everyone ... Chox.
apply hot water with a small amount of washing up liquid, using your cloth. The trick for a sparkling finish is use a scrunched up newspaper.


In the RAF in the 1960s, we used simply newspaper and water - and of course, they were inspected weekly.
Warm water and newspaper is all that's needed.
I just knew there would be lots of "newspaper" afficionados...goes back in time to when there wasn't anything better.
Decent microfibre cloths are a far better alternative and Nilglass liquid cleaner if windows/glass/mirrors are REALLY grubby...it gets 100% 5-star reviews on Amazon and is fantastic on car windows, when nothing else works.
