You may not like the idea of spending hard-earned money on things that you can do yourself, like cleaning your house. But do after dedicating most of your energies to your work and other priorities,

Window cleaning tips

Use a good squeegee. Ettore makes a good squeegee.

Clean windows when they’re not in direct sun.

Rinse dust off exterior windows with a hose first, if necessary.

Clean the window with a little dish soap in a lot of water. You can use a rag or an applicator. The applicator or rag is also the best way to clean the screen, so it isn’t dusty and doesn’t have that acrid, burnt smell.

Dry the window with the squeegee. Search for videos of techniques. Touch up around the edges if necessary with a clean, lint-free cloth.

Use a longer handle before you use a ladder.

Save the Windex (or equivalent) for small details and for the interior of car windows, where a squeegee won’t fit. There’s a reason professional window cleaners use squeegees and not Windex.
