  • For hard to reach outside panes, a ladder
  • A hose with an empty plant food attachment

The Steps for Cleaning Inside Garden Windows

  1. To remove a glass shelf, do not pull it out towards you! With a helper, lift it up from its brackets, remove it, and clean it separately.
  2. Remove the bottom liner to the window and clean separately.
  3. Vacuum, and brush the whole window frame.
  4. Put 3 or 4 drops of liquid dish detergent in 2 gallons of water.
  5. Wet towel #1 and wipe clean the window frame and bottom pan area.
  6. Wash only one pane at a time with the hand sponge.
  7. Start at a top corner and draw down the squeegee. Drying the squeegee well between strokes, keep one edge of it on the already dry area as you work across the pane. Repeat for each pane.
  8. Dry the frame thoroughly and replace (don't slide) the cleaned shelf and pan.

Cleaning the Outsides of Garden Windows

  1. If the outside is reachable, follow the steps for cleaning the inside.
  2. If not, put two drops of detergent in the plant food sprayer and wash debris with a hose.
  3. Wipe down the frames.
  4. Use a fairly wet sponge mop to clean one pane at a time.
  5. Use the squeegee on the telescoping handle to clean panes as you did on the inside.
