Ricksiri I'm 5'6 but still manage to clean my exterior windows and even my roof and gutters by using a telescopic spray wand that I bought from BestCarGurus, it is worth a buy!

gcs I haven't heard anything about Rainex. Does it allow the water to roll off, possibly? We use a solution of dawn & water, wash with flat mop, grab extension pole if needed, douse glass in clean rinse water, squeegee off excess water and the windows always come out looking crystal clear every time.

missannienow I clean the exterior windows simply. I damped a cloth with water and Windex-like glass cleaner. I just pull the Swiffer mop down and the dirt comes off fine. I am only 5'3" so had to find A way to clean the outsides of my windows.
Can someone please explain why Rainex is so popular? I have used it but don't see any difference except the water beads when its raining.

Thanks for sharing such a valuable information. Nice tips how to clean windows. I will definitely need them. Can anyone help me with this question?

Rain X product line extension

Looks like Rain X is trying to extend their brand to more than windshields. Frankly the effort and the cost for doing this makes it impractical. That said it makes for good branding for Rain X. I'll stick to window cleaning the old fashion way and stop with the Blue Dawn or for that matter any good gentle detergent.

jlee511640 When you clean windows, it is better to take care of mini blinds.
There is a tip here.

Marker and crayon on the windows, what are kids doing these days?! Fortunately I've never come across this situation, helpful information for when I do though! Thanks

Saffelle The idea is well thought out using a hydrophobic spray to discourage water adhesion to the windows after they have been cleaned.

Coming from an extensive automotive detailing and commercial cleaning background I will admit that although Rain-X products work well, they are not a cost effective solutions compared to commercial products. The Rain-X Repellent is great for exterior home and business windows as a water repellent, can't argue with that.

For the cleaning aspect I don't see why a commercial level non-ammoniated glass cleaner or deionized water (system) wouldnt work the same and cost less. Like in any industry you pay for name brand products.

Just my 2 cents! Great information though
