Giveaway!! – Fish Foam Window Cleaner

Random Observation #1:

It makes me giggle that as a Known-to-the-World Slob (seriously, I know I have readers in Germany, Egypt, Serbia, Lithuania and more), companies ask me to test out their cleaning products.  It’s great motivation to clean!

Random Observation #2:

Taking pictures of dirty windows is hard.  You know how a window can look perfectly fine until the moment when the sun hits it just so?  (Which is always right when people are walking up to your door?)   I struggled to get good before pictures for this review.

Let me assure you . . . my windows/doors had smudges.  Icky smudges.  Smudges that make me scratch my head and wonder how exactly they got there.  And occasionally . . . they have (purposely) unidentified, extra-sticky substances in small nostril-sized globs.

So gross.

Anyway, when I got the chance to review Fish Foam Premium Foaming Glass Cleaner, I figured it was great motivation to clean my windows.

My pictures are of one specific window space where I was able to get a good picture of the finger prints/wipes.  There’s a screen outside the window.

I sprayed the Fish Foam:

It’s really foam.  I know.  I was surprised the first time I used it, too!  The can doesn’t say to wait, so I didn’t.  I wiped it off immediately using a microfiber cloth.

The smudge was immediately gone without any extra effort.  The splat was gone too.

The unseen (thankfully), nostril-sized, unidentified, extra-sticky substance took minimal extra wiping to get it off.

I was pleased.

I also cleaned my front door.

 Here’s where my only “concern” came in.  My microfiber cloth was saturated and dripping foam before I was done wiping off the door.  I grabbed a cloth diaper (clean and unused for at least the last 5 years, thank you!) and continued wiping.  It was saturated as well by the time I got done wiping both sides.

Not a big deal, but if (that’s a big IF) I was going to clean all the windows in my house at one time, I’d need a big ol’ stack of cloths for wiping.

Or . . . I would get one of those squeegee things.  In fact, I’ve just decided in this very moment to get one of those if I ever do clean all my windows at once.

IF . . . .

I left it like this:

Can you see the teeny bits of foam left?  When I came back after a few minutes, the door looked extra clear and shiny.

I was happy.

So who wants to win their own three-pack of Fish Foam Premium Foaming Glass Cleaner

It really is cool stuff.  It’s professional grade, all-weather, ammonia free, and was created by America’s largest window cleaning company.  They use it, too!

Oh, and it comes in a pretty red can.

You can read more about it and order at Fish Foam’s website.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment telling us when you last cleaned your windows.  (Be honest!)

One comment per person.  Sorry, but my international friends (though mentioned above) are not eligible.  U.S. residents only.  This giveaway will end at 9 pm Central on Tuesday, January 29th, 2013.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond to the email notifying them of their win, so PLEASE use an email address you check daily.  See all my giveaway guidelines here

The prize is provided and shipped by Fish Foam.  I was given three cans of Fish Foam to facilitate my review and was compensated for my time spent writing the post and organizing the giveaway.  The opinions and experiences are all mine.  The unidentified nostril-sized substance is most definitely not mine. 

Comments

  1. the living room ones plus the door, just a couple days ago, the rest of the house…well…dont ask :P

  2. We have lived hers for eight years and I don’t think that there has ever been a time when all my windows have been clean at the same time.

  3. I love it!
    I have a large front window that needs cleaning and needs Fish Foam. My small, pea brained dog has climbed up on the piano bench, to get onto the electronic piano to stand in the window smearing flat faced dog nose prints all over the window to proclaim herself ruler of as much of the street as she can see. Please! Send it to me!

  4. I would LOVE to try Fish Foam!! My daughter might be more willing to clean the windows if she could “draw” on the windows with the foam! I clean our living room windows and glass door about every 2 weeks, but…..the rest of the windows in the house hardly ever get cleaned….as in….can’t even remember the last time I washed them!!! EEEKK!!!

  5. Um, pretty sure it was about a year ago. Think the hubby MIGHT have wiped down the front door since then. It SERIOUSLY needs to be done because we had all those gooey holiday things sticking on the door for over a month at Christmas. Yuck.

    Does it work on the shower door? That door needs some serious work.

  6. Marcie A. says:

    The only windows I clean are the front door and the sliding back door. I really need to clean the others…maybe this spring (?).

  7. Two years ago? Maybe I cleaned the inside of the kitchen windows more recently. Don’t judge me.

  8. Inside or out???? The inside only one window has been cleaned consistently since living here for 3 years now. That would be the patio door. Which I HATE cleaning! I can never get all the streaks!! As for the outside of the house. Never, how bad is that?!

  9. 2 months ago. Had company coming to visit and have a dog that sits on the back of the couch and sneezes or something.

  10. Well I moved to my current apartment in August and I know that I have never cleaned the windows…my husband is currently deployed so I can’t ask him if he has before but it’s doubtful so…never?? :(

  11. Jessica W says:

    Eek! I have lots of Dirty windows! That stuff looks awesome! I think it’s been at least a month since I’ve washed all the windows around here.

  12. We’ve been in our house 5 years next week and the only ones I can remember cleaning are the 2 glass doors, but others may have been cleaned for my son’s 1st birthday party a couple of years ago. We have to do the one on the front of the house fairly often, because our boxer spends his days looking out it and breathing/drooling/snorting on it.

    I just found your blog at the beginning of this month, but it’s making a difference, for the better, in our home and our lives. Thank you for sharing, because I seriously thought that I was the only one that was like this.

  13. Jennifer M. says:

    Clean windows. That would allow everyone to see in my cluttered house!!! :)

  14. All of them? At the same time? **snort laugh** That’s funny!

    I have 7 kids 10 and under. My windows get cleaned when I can’t see through them anymore AND it’s too gross to pass off as UV protection. I last cleaned the front window and glass door a month ago, I think?

  15. I do not remember ever cleaining all my windows. Only on an as needed because I moved the blinds and cannot ignore that basis.

  16. Ashley Ojibway says:

    The last time I cleaned ALL of them? A year and a half at least. I do sporadic wipes. But…the windows in my front room (behind the desk) haven’t been touched in at least a year and a half, probably closer to 2 years.

  17. ALL the windows? Never. We live in a two story house and there is no way I’m climbing up a ladder to clean windows. The ones that my grand-lovey can reach, maybe two months ago.

  18. Very recently because I got my order of Fish Foam this month. Not every window but some and some mirrors, too.

  19. Kelley G. says:

    Here Fishy Fishy……. I like foam cleaners :) Back door to deck was cleaned a few weeks ago by my 5 year old and 2 year old, real pro job. The rest of the house windows, probably last summer time.

  20. celina boulanger says:

    when my father in law was here last..in september at which point he pointed out my streaky windows and rewashed them…he’s back on sunday…and i will wash them again…and he will likely redo them again…lol

  21. Danielle Scott says:

    Ha! Never! I have lived in my house for 6 months and I have never cleaned all our windows. I do usually clean the front door once a week.

  22. Honestly? Last spring! I did clean the front storm door window a few weeks ago when I took Christmas decorations down.

  23. we’ve lived in our house 5.5 years. i don’t think they’ve ever all been clean at the same time. we’re getting ready to list the house for sale in three months (!!!!!!!!!) and i’m thinking fish foam is the way to go!

  24. The kitchen windows got cleaned during Christmas break when 2 of my kids would not stop arguing. I made one clean the inside and one clean the outside. The rest of the windows have not been cleaned in months and the windows upstairs have not been cleaned in years.

  25. Just washed the upstairs windows in one of the bedrooms. We just do the inside though, it is an apartment.

  26. My living room sliding door about 6 months ago. My windows… Umm at least 2 years maybe more. I would love to try this product it would be a great incentive for me to clean them finally!..

  27. Anne Marie says:

    It has been a year so it is time to do windows again – this stuff sounds fantastic – hope I am the lucky one who gets to try it!!

  28. Christina Street says:

    I know I did the Living Room windows in October, but not sure when any others may have gotten done. I have a bad habit of popping them out when I tilt them in to clean the outside and it messes the seal up bad!

  29. Tamora Russell says:

    I do the downstairs regularly but can’t get to the outside of the upstairs windows!

  30. I can see I’m not alone. I really only clean the front glass door when I can’t stand it anymore. I think I’m the only one who cares. : )

  31. Jan Jones says:

    Honestly??? I can’t really remember the last time. How sad is that????

  32. I cleaned the kitchen window about 4 months ago — it was grossin’ me out with all the water spatters. Um, I don’t remember when the other windows were cleaned. It was a while ago since my girls have a Hello Kitty clingie thing on one that hasn’t moved in a year? 18 months?!?

  33. Um, never. What? I live in a rental! Thanks for the chance. :>)

  34. Umm – the downstairs windows – last March, because my mother and sister were helping me clean the house before we had the dinner after my Aunt & Uncle’s burial service. upstairs? We’ve lived here 13 years, and those windows are 10 years old, so probably 9 years ago.

  35. TexasLacisMom says:

    You’re supposed to clean the windows too?!!!

    Seriously, I wipe down the glass door from time to time but there are windows in my home that have never been cleaned. Thanks for the chance to win. I’m thinking I might need all 3 cans to do the job that’s never been done.

  36. I cleaned the parts of the windows that my kids and dog can reach (and that company sees) earlier this week. The rest of the windows haven’t been cleaned for a long time.

  37. Christine Treece says:

    Over a year ago … or maybe longer, I can’t remember!

  38. Last time I cleaned my windows? . . . ummmmmmmm — been here 6 years, living room ones last summer and THAT’S IT! urrrrggggg. help meeeeee get some feesh foooom

  39. I am not sure when I last cleaned my windows…it may have been for my son’s birthday party in October.

  40. Oh, goodness – maybe last spring? I honestly can’t remember. I had a cleaning lady come in at some point last year and she cleaned a few of them.

  41. The glass door in the kitchen gets cleaned a lot, bc the 1.5 yr old loves handprints. The rest of the windows got cleaned right after we moved in, so… 1.5 years?

  42. I’m renting the bottom half of an old Victorian with french doors (zillions of tiny square windows) in addition to the other zillion windows in the rest of the house. Shamefully, I have never cleaned the windows. It’s just too overwhelming because they are SO dirty and there are SO many of them. It’s sad. Really it is.

  43. Um, I think my kids cleaned a few windows a few years ago because I paid them. I can’t remember the last time I cleaned my windows, so they probably need to be cleaned now.

  44. Angela Wells says:

    It’s been at least close to a year. I could use some Fish Foam.

  45. Jennifer M. says:

    Just moved in in July. My in-laws cleaned some of them for me (I think the just couldn’t stand it any longer =), but I have yet to clean the rest. =(

  46. 5 years in this house, and I have never washed the outside of the upstairs windows. The inside, 2.5 years, when we had guests sleeping there. I am soooo proud of myself. Downstairs, weekly and some monthly and outside, maybe annually. Ugh.

  47. Sylvia Butler says:

    I cleaned them with Windex last. Always love to try new things!

  48. i have lived here for 5 years..never cleaned the windows. (gasp)

  49. I think it was sometime this century, but don’t remember exactly when — maybe 5 years or so. They are in desperate need, that’s for sure. I do keep the mirrors cleaned on a regular basis. They’re kind of like windows. Does that count? ;-)

  50. Oh gosh. I’ve lived in this house, with the annoying sliding glass door in the master bedroom, for over a year and not cleaned that darn door once. I last cleaned the living room windows six weeks ago, when I knew my neat-as-a-pin aunt was coming over. I just pretend I don’t have windows in the rooms where blinds or drapes are usually covering them. The smudges that are not seen don’t exist.

  51. The last time I cleaned my windows was….. never! Why? Because my husband does it. He had a terrible experience working for Fish Windowcleaning. I hope I win this so that I can show it to him, kind of as a joke. Maybe he’ll notice it as I casually use it one day, and say, “Wha??? What’s this??” He gets on the roof , and clean our windows at least every year if not more often. I cannot complain! However, I have to clean my glass sink every few days and I sure would appreciate this product. So please choose me.

  52. We’ve lived in this house for a little over 3 years and I’m pretty sure there are windows that I’ve never cleaned :/ That being said, I DID just clean the sliding glass door and the back door last week. Not that anybody would ever know that given that the doggie art has reappeared.

  53. It has been over a year since I cleaned the front storm door window. As for the rest of the windows in our house, it has been several years. I keep the blinds closed all the time, so don’t see that they are dirty. Fish Foam looks like my kind of product – especially since you don’t have to be precious about getting every last bit wiped carefully off so you don’t get streaks. I am new to your blog, but am learning a lot. And will eventually put it into action, I have begun with small steps already! Thanks for the great advice.

  54. Tracie carver says:

    I just brought a house in Oct and I have not had the chance to clean any Windows. I would really like to try that fish cleaner, it’s seems like it would make my spring cleaning easy.

  55. Jennifer A says:

    I think the last time I cleaned my windows was in August …the front windows anyway. The city has been replacing water lines under the street and its been a dusty mess. Plus 2 kids and now a puppy with muddy paws have made me give the window job to my son

  56. Probably about 6 months ago. I live in Alaska and it is -35 right now. Not optimum window cleaning weather. I do clean the sliding door the dog gets nose prints on. The rest wait til summer, then at least a couple times from April to August.

  57. I can’t remember. It’s been at least a year if not longer. I might clean them once a year if that. :( I do clean my front door but I haven’t cleaned the back storm door in years. My kids use the back door for their personal finger drawing when the weather is cold. They have too much fun “drawing” on the back door. :) But I am sure if I really looked at it I would be appalled at how it looks. But as a Mom I just see my kids’ masterpieces. :)

  58. Taramarie says:

    I’m guessing it’s been at least 3 or 4 months since the windows have been washed downstairs and I’m ashamed to admit, I really can’t remember ever washing any of the windows upstairs… in my partial defense we do need all new windows, they’re old, and many of them have some fog type inside the glass….

  59. Let’s see…..we’ve lived here 15 years….Ummmmm…..

    *biting lip*

    *thinking*

    Well, I don’t remember. Spot cleaning as needed but I’ve been in bed with a pregnancy since the end of July so definitely before then. But I can honestly say I’ve never just gone through the house and cleaned all the windows at once. Ever.

  60. Inside – I can’t remember when. Outside – it’s a two person process so a year or more at least. It’s getting hard to see out our bedroom windows so I usually leave the blinds mostly closed. Bleah!

  61. Wow, it’s been a while. Several years for some of the windows. A year or so for the sliding glass door.

  62. We are planning to replace our windows soon so no window cleaning for me! Can’t remember when all were clean at once. I clean the doors as needed though. I’m just thankful I’m not alone in the “window cleaning confessional”!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  63. I have lived in my house 11 years now. I personally have never cleaned my windows but my mother in law cleaned them when she visited about 8 years ago. My kids cleaned them for money about 4 years ago. I have cleaned my front screen door glass at least once in the last 3 years. My mini blinds are always closed. Now if there was a product that made dusting/cleaning wood mini blinds easier, I would be happy. They are so dusty I am afraid to open them.

  64. We have lived in our house for over 13 years. The Kitchen and dining room windows were clean when we had them replaced two years ago. I mean they looked clean when the guys finished installing them. The rest of the windows have blinds so luckily you can’t see any smudges/unidentifiable splats. And, duh, the outside windows get cleaned every time it rains! I’d love to try some Fish Foam. If they could work on my windows, I’d be shocked! Pick me! Pick me!

  65. Uh, I am supposed to WASH the windows??!!

  66. We live on a farm in the middle of 100 acres of cotton. Very dusty to say the least. I have not cleaned the windows since we moved in 12 years ago. I would love to have clean windows, and this would inspire me to get started. I hope I win!

  67. I clean the mirror each week when I clean the bathroom. However, as for any other glass in the house, I really couldn’t tell you. I cleaned at the dead bugs from between my bedroom window this past summer, but I didn’t take the time to clean the window. So, I don’t know.

  68. Uhmmmm, five years ago when we moved in. How sad, I need to go clean my windows!

  69. I cleaned our living room windows the weekend after Thanksgiving, right before we put our Christmas tree up in front of them. The rest of the windows in the house, not so sure :( Sad, I know.

  70. You mean like the sliding glass doors right behind me that I’ve been meaning to get to since we got the dog and I lost my main excuse right before Halloween. Yeah, it’s been at least that long.

  71. All the windows in the house got cleaned in November…

  72. I have been making an effort to clean my windows more often. I’m actually running out of cleaner (the same bottle that’s lasted 5 years). :-)

  73. When did I last clean my windows? I honestly can’t remember. I may have cleaned the inside of the sliding glass door before Christmas – because the tree went in front of it. Before that? Maybe last summer. Or the summer before. Cleaning the bathroom windows is on my to-do list. Because we renovated one last summer and it still has construction dust on it. We have a lot of windows and it’s just not a priority for me. I’d love something that made the job quicker and easier!

  74. Urm … I have a vague recollection of cleaning the window above my kitchen sink sometime last fall. Those in my dining room were last cleaned … probably more than a year ago. In my defense, my windows are made up of tiny panes and they don’t fold down like those fancy new windows, so cleaning them involves going outside and balancing on a ladder.

  75. The last time we cleaned our windows?? Well, we’ve lived here for 15 years and have cleaned them once … a LONG time ago. And we have those supposedly “easy” to clean windows that fold in. Ha!! Our windows are low to the floor and our two Rat Terriers spend their entire day running from window to window watching the wildlife, and smudging every inch of window within reach with their wet noses. Those smudges and the accumulated grime of LOTS of years have left our windows anything but clean. Please, please pick us for some free Fish Foam — our windows will be happy :-) !!

  76. I clean my front door glass and living room window about once a month! Couldn’t tell you the last time all the other windows have had a good cleaning!

  77. The main windows at Christmas time (kitchen sink/sliding door/front door); the whole house in and out September-ish. I try to do them once or twice a year. I don’t strain myself, on the outside I use a large brush (that’s used to wash cars) with an extendable handle, dip it in soapy water (dish soap), scrub (screen & all), and spray clean with the garden hose. i only have about 10 windows so it’s pretty easy (if i just do it!)

  78. I cleaned the sliding glass door downstairs this fall, because it was already fogged up and I had a squeegee right there. There was a band of doggie nose prints. I cleaned the windows in the bedroom the cat likes to look out last fall too. And the window I look out to see who’s at the front door, and the windows I have plants in, all last fall.

    The rest of the windows, I try to do every spring. Except the kitchen window I can’t reach unless I climb up on the counters and then I have to figure out how to take the screen out… it’s been a long time since I could climb on the counters.

  79. If you need a squeegee,you can get them at the Dollar Tree for(of course) one dollar.Oh and I don’t do windows.That’s what I had kid’s for.

  80. Carolina_D says:

    Erm…I just went to the Fish Foam website to check it out. They have a video of how to use it. They spray a LIGHT spray on a small area of the window, wipe it away, then move on to the next area. According to what I saw, you used at least six times more of the product than actually needed. Oh, and for cleaning ‘fussy’ items such as chandelier crystals, they sprayed the product onto a cloth, then used that on the crystals, one by one. At any rate, it DID help to watch the instructions. And, now that I know how to use it…??? (It’s been at least 3 years since I’ve cleaned a window here. I’m ALSO hoping it will work on my filthy ceiling fan! It’s really close to my kitchen and manages to collect grease as well as dust.) (I live in a studio apartment)

    • Carolina_D says:

      I just re-read my comment and it sadly, sounds really snippy. I didn’t mean for it to. I just suffer from OCD (really, and yet I’m a lousy housekeeper, cos if I can’t have everything perfect I can’t bring myself to do ANYTHING…does that even make sense?) At any rate, my OCD ‘requires’ that I check everything out. If I’m considering a purchase, I always check out the company’s website if they have one, then I do a Google search for reviews of the product. Only after reading all of those do I decide whether or not to buy a product. At least, any product costing more than $5-$6. I’ve saved myself a lot of grief I think, especially on those ‘infomercial’ products that LOOK so amazing, and/or products from the Home Shopping Network that look like such great deals! But, I even check out food products if they’re new. I probably waste…er spend…6-8 hours a week with my best friend Google Search…LOL!

  81. Donna Cheatle says:

    It was Spring of last year. I do every window in the house every Spring. I just can’t seem to get around to it at any other time of year. Although now you have me looking at my windows and cringing. Methinks Spring will have to come early this year, like today. Oy

  82. It was June 2011 for my daughter’s graduation party. [Hanging head in shame.]

  83. Hmmm, that’s a good question. I’d have to guess that it was Fall 2011? Yeah, that sounds about right. Gonna go hide in a corner now. :)

  84. I clean my windows about twice a year but THEY ARE NEVER CLEAN! I’ve used tons of products but have not found anything that makes them look like my Mom’s windows did. They always sparkled. I need Fish Foam!

  85. If I’m being honest…I would have to say about a month ago.

  86. Stephanie says:

    I’ve lived in this house 4yrs. I’ve done a couple of windows in that time, but never truly washed them. :sheepish:

  87. I think it was last Summer. We have very long Winters here, so I tend to only clean the windows during the Spring and Summer months due to the almost nonexistent sun during the colder months.

  88. It has been over a year since I cleaned all the windows in the house. I do the front ones and back door more often though.

  89. It has been awhile, a long while. This looks like it would be wonderful and easy to convince my children to help as well!!!

  90. It’s been FOREVER! Maybe my daughter’s birthday party last summer. I think!

  91. Ummm…..hmmmm…..seriously, I don’t remember. I had them professionally cleaned a few years ago. But since then? I do not recall. Maybe never? There’s a reason I’m following you!:)

  92. The livingroom windows and the dining room sliding glass (one side only, since the other is blocked by a plant rack…)–last spring. The rest? Never, since they were done for me before we moved in…uhh…over three years ago…oops! :)

  93. Ohh I’d love to win Fish Foam! I recently cleaned my kitchen and living room windows. But the others? Hmm, a long time. And they never get cleaned from the outside because there are screens on all of them. So even if…when… I DO clean the insides, they still look grungy because I can’t clean the outsides.

    I’d LOVE to try this on my van too!! Ohhh the smudges there- Gross!

  94. Umm… I spent a lot of time a few weeks back scrubbing one of the windows on my front porch. Only problem is that I have THREE windows on my front porch! :-( thanks for hosting!!

  95. Are you starting to feel ‘normal’ because I ALSO have no idea the last time I cleaned my windows? I have a glass sliding door that gets cleaned about once every 3 months – but that is because the dog stands with ther nose pressed against it and it starts to get really gross.

  96. Last spring I cleaned most of my windows on the outside.
    Since then, an occasional window here and there on the inside
    . My kids are in charge of cleaning the sliding glass doors.
    Ugh! It never looks much cleaner!!

  97. Last time I cleaned all my windows… I actually never have. -_- lived in this apartment for almost a year an never cleaned the bedroom windows. My glass doors were last cleaned about 1 week into January since I still had the dried up foam all over the doors. WORST IDEA EVER. I’ve dried windex. Plain ammonia. Horrible ideas and they still look streaked from the snow foam. :/

  98. Oh my… I’m being honest to the point of embarrassemnt. The last time I cleaned my windows was during my divorce when I couldn’t sleep, had nothing better to do, and was on a rampage to rid the house of anything that reminded me of my now ex … and that apparently included window smudges. That was Nov of 2007. My mom has come over and done a “few” at various points as we have painted (cuz of course the room isn’t DONE until the windows are clean too – according to her) but after poking holes in 1 of the screens and breaking the slide thing off the master bedroom window to where I had to replace it – she is banned from even saying the word “window” in my presence. That’s been at least 2 years and she’s touched maybe 4 windows – not a very good track record for her. :-)

  99. We moved into this house 2 yrs ago come March. We replaced most of the windows in the fall of 2011. I have cleaned a few windows, but never fully washed ANY of them. This product looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it on mirrors too!!

  100. Shellee Chase says:

    I cleaned every single window when we moved in. That was six years ago. Haven’t done it since.

  101. we had lovely glass doors installed as our front doors 2 years ago; i clean them every 6 months whether they need it or not :) never can get them streak free so i’m still looking for that elusive glass cleaning product that works!

  102. I think I only cleaned the windows when I first moved in about a year and half ago. I clean the sliding doors when they need it.

  103. Lisa Davisson says:

    Mine have never all been clean inside and out!

  104. We moved into a 1950′s home that sat empty for the last twenty years. I have 6 daughters and a husband in the Navy who is gone, All.of.the.TIME! Therefore- I have yet to clean my windows. They are horrid, however I have the winter drapes up due to the cold here in OHIO, but soon I’ll be changing out for the spring/summer ones and really need to hit them hard, there is dirt and bug guts all over them. I REALLY NEED this super cool foam, I might be able to convince my older girls that cleaning the windows is fun!

  105. Amanda Hinderliter says:

    We live in an apartment in NYC, so the windows don’t ever stay clean – thank you soot and all the other city gross-ness. But, we did clean the outside of three of the windows when we replaced and moved around our window A/C units. The other windows weren’t clean when we moved in … and still haven’t been cleaned. This would be great motivation (I hope)!

  106. I have not cleaned my windows since I moved into my house about 6 months ago.

  107. This is so bad. I have not cleaned my windows since my new ones were put in….. Dec 2010. BUT I can say that I had my daughter 4 days later and it has been a whirlwind ever since :)

  108. UM…never! i inherited my house 2 years ago. and the last time they were cleaned then…..a long time lol.

  109. The last time I cleaned a window was around easter 2012 when I wanted to put some gel clings up. Other than that, it’s probably been two years, if not more!

  110. Uh…hmmm…inside all at once, about a year ago…outside yesterday, I mean the rain washing the dirt off counts right?! Right?

    Wow…the last time I cleaned my windows. It’s at least been 6-9 months. I am like another writer, if I see something dirty I will clean it…otherswise I rely on the blinds to cover the windows.

    Here is the easiest, cheapest and most streak-free way to clean windows. You won’t believe it until you try it.

    1. Fill a bucket with warm water, Add a squeeze of dishwashing liquid, like you were going to wash dishes.

    2. Put a clean terry washcloth in the bucket. Squeeze out. Now simply wipe the entire surface of the window with the soapy wet cloth.

    3. Take another clean terry cloth and dry it. No rinsing needed. Just keep wiping until all of the wet is gone. No streaks! Crystal clear!

    4. If you think about it, you don’t clean a drinkingglass with windex or newspaper or whatever, so why would you do it to window glass?

    5. It literally takes me 2 minutes to do one whole pop-out window, two sides, or one big picture window.

  113. Front door and windows before the holidays,the rest, last spring.Thanks for the giveaway!

  114. We built a new home this year. A sweet neighbor came to help paint/clean. This was a few months ago. I have never cleaned the windows or the doors. :-( Maybe this would help me do it.

    It was two years ago in the spring.

    We are supposed to clean our windows? LOL I think the last time I was FORCED to clean my windows was at least 2 years ago….

  117. Dierdre Smith says:

    Ummm, I’ve lived here 2 years and have never cleaned the windows or mirrors. Ewwww, I’m a slob. Maybe fun Fish Foam would help rectify that part of my slobbiness!

  118. messee mami says:

    Hmmm, my kids enjoy doing windows so around 5-6 months. If it were my job it would be more like once year.

  119. Kristen Williams says:

    The last time I cleaned my windows was the beginning of December 2012 and only because I had holiday window clings to put up. Come to think of it, that was the reason I didn’t it the time before in December 2011. Wow! I think I should probably be cleaning my windows more often!

  120. I just finished my SPRING cleaning in November and I washed all the windows then, but that was the only time I washed them the whole time we’ve been living here (over a year).

  121. The last time I’ve done windows was last spring. I can blame that on nesting. It was a random thing that doesn’t happen as often as it should.

  122. over a year!
