Cleaning windows can be a lot of work or relatively easy. It depends on your cleaning formula and method.
Assemble a bucket & cloths, I like to use white wash cloths for washing & white absorbent hand towels for drying.
I use a simple solution of 1/2 gallon of hot tap water 3 teaspoons of distilled vinegar & 1/4 teaspoon of dish soap. (Brands don't matter to me in this case).
Wash then thoroughly dry the window 1 pane at a time. Start at the top wash then dry thoroughly. For tilt in type windows tilt in and do the other side. Move to the lower pane and repeat. Lift the window to clean the inner and outer sill.
Many people use a squeegee (absolutely necessary for very large or high windows) but quite honestly most people have a lot of difficulty with streak and I don't find them practical for most home applications.

Are your stainless appliances always streaky or fingerprinted?
I always have the best results from Weiman products. Remember you must start with a clean surface. Use a little dish soap & water to clean stainless before applying polish. The trick in a perfect result lies in drying the surface completely. Apply the stainless steel polish to a soft cloth & cover the entire surface with a thin layer. Use another dry soft cloth to polish completely dry. Remember to always wipe with the grain (usually up & down).

As promised I will be posting general efficiency comments & tips from professional housekeepers.
Do you look at your house and honestly don't know where to start?
Maria's- A general rule of thumb is top to bottom. What does that mean? Start upstairs or at one end of the house & do all tasks systematically on each level. Cleaning each room separately just adds up to more minutes of cleaning drudgery. Dust every room then remove trash from the entire level etc.
Mary - A magic eraser really is magic. Awesome in tubs & showers. Really shines up stainless faucets and cabinet pulls. (A word of caution from me - not to be used on stainless appliances).
Lisa - Gather all supplies in advance. The simpler, the better. There really isn't a need for a lot of chemicals. Lisa uses bleach, vinegar, lemon oil & stainless steel polish to make homes beautiful.
Jessica - Work in teams of two. Two people can do more together than two can do separately.
