Not really a past-time

I have been asked by HTMBO to seek advice from all of you.......

She wants to know what you, or the MIP for you, uses to clean the MH windows, she knows what NOT to use, but wishes to know what SHOULD be used ?

Obviously, she will be doing the job (her that asks ought to do), although I have just a sneaking suspicion that it MIGHT get added to my toilet roll of THINGS TO DO.

So, suggestions please (no, it's the servant's day off) would be appreciated,

Over to you....

PS We have had the MH for 16 years, it's just that she realised it was sunny outside and we still had the lights on inside... 😮

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Don't bother Dave it will only get dirty again. Quick wipe with a damp cloth and feel you have achieved something.

Or, mist spray with water then wipe GENTLY with a very soft cloth. Donít rub, just wipe gently.

Oh, and do it gently - a light stroking motion, not rubbing, not back and forth, just gentle stroking.

That works for ours when Mrs O does it . . .


Regards,
John

I use a vinegar and water solution and microfibres cloth

If the solution is warm/ hot it works faster, but a spray bottle is fine with a cold solution

Use it same solution for all mirrors windows etc In the house

Iíve had to try to remedy many peopleís strange cleaning chemical disasters in my time. The simple answer is just plain water - but try to do it more often! 😂

A fool and his money are soon partying.

I use a soft hand brush and plain water before doing anything else Dave, then once dry a simple car polish, keep it simple, she'll be done quicker and back to make your lunch.

You know it makes sense.
