    What is the best way to clean this sort of window?

    Is it best to just scrape the squeegee down making sure the squeegee overlaps the previous scrape downwards to remove any lines?

    Also the window below this smallish window has patterns etc on it, just clean this like a patio window?

    For the top pane, you can manage with a 14" but I har smaller channels to help stop marks line happening..

    The lower pane, depending on how bumpy the pattern is, you should be able to use the squeegee, with a little more pressure, if the rubber dosent remove it all, just buff off with scrim?

    For the top pane, if your just pulling instead of fanning.. Wipe the top with a micro fibre then wipe the rubber, this will stop getting soapy dragging marks when you pull down..

    Same as MK with me for the big one if it's too bumpy for squeegee, small one personally I'd use 6" squeegee, fan it with 2 or 3 straight pulls without taking off the glass or if larger squeegee fits well just one pull straight across.

    Z technique for the top one, squeegy bottom then wipe excess with a microfibre or a scrim. Simples! :D

    I thought daley quit? nvm, welcome back. I'd either use a 6" and fan it or find a squeegee that fitted and blade across in one go. The latter is preferable (faster). For the one below same as the others have said - blade then use scrim...
