1. Above All Else, Be Safe!
Of course this should go without saying, but while it is important to keep a clean house, it is even more important to keep a healthy lifestyle. When washing the windows of a second story room or higher, take the appropriate precautions to stay as safe as possible. If this means climbing a ladder to reach the window instead of leaning out of it, have someone hold the ladder at the bottom. If this means being extra careful when leaning out the window, have someone there to spot you in case you lose your balance. After all, the best way to clean outside windows — really, what is the best way to clean windows at all — is to approach it from the safest way possible. You can’t finish washing the windows if you fall and break your arm!
