Mine are much cleaner. My parents were slovenly.
Is this "If you can't beat 'em, join' em"?
Not sure about the windows but my grill is.
Probably not, but the window cleaner did the outside this week and I did the inside last week.
Mine are filthy but we have just moved in so haven't sorted out window cleaner yet. I did have a go at cleaning some of them inside so a little better.Paint a plaster is a pain to remove.
Me mam stopped work after getting married.
No because I am much lazier than either of them were.
No, my mother set great store by having clean windows and nets. I could never come close.
No chance. Here's my great grandpa George singing about it:
My windows are so filthy I can't even see if it's turned out nice again.
I don't really remember. My mother was very house proud ..... I was always caught if I had so much as just opened one of her drawers (I was/ am obsessive 'rooter") I don't remember window cleaners so must presume that my father would have cleaned the large shop windows..... but then...he mist well have left them to my mother - he was good like that.
I hate cleaning windows. Hate it when there are streaks, hate all the cleaners which promise no streaks (I include vinegar and newspaper in with that) Have 4 dogs who come into this lounge, jump on the settee by the window and create not at all interesting 'nose-snot art'.
@Jude Fawley I'm surprised you had windows.
Get a Karcher suction window cleaner. It revolutionises the entire experience. Fun times!
Tried and tested: wipe the window with a cloth dipped in a bowl of water and washing up liquid. Wipe dryish with kitchen roll. Buff completely dry and smear-free with a clean tea towel.
My mother (almost 90) still cleans the insides of her windows every week. I do mine once or twice per year but only if they really need doing.
We move home when the windows are dirty, same as changing the car when the ashtray is full.
Both my parents had cleaning obsessions. Probably OCD in my dads case. So no, I don't come up to their standards.
Certainly not cleaner than my gran's. She was very particular; about her windows because they kept up appearances. Didn't matter what the rest of the house was like as long as the windows were clean the curtains straight,Don't look like a lodging house she would say (though I never understood what the connection was)
She would disapprove of my windows as they're covered in dust/sand but not much I can do as we're several floors up and no window cleaner,
It’s the only way to go!
I remember years ago when my son took his first steps.
The window cleaner was furious.
No. Of course not. My mum had a window cleaner. Not like that. Oi!
I don't have a window cleaner. Who wants to go up a three storey house? No one. Probably need scaffolding these days to clean my windows.
And if I clean the insides it just looks horrible and streaky. Leave well alone says I.
