    Do you have access to WFP? If not I'd use a damp scrim to clean and a microsuede to dry and job done, leaded are one of the main reason I don't offer trad work on houses any more.

    As eclipse said almost, I use damp microfibre then dry one to dry it obviously. Just for good measure I'll buff with a totally dry one.

    Spray a bit of astonish window & tile cleaner on. Wipe with 1 micro buff with another. Simple & gleaming windows.

    If the are going to be badly soiled you be best using mop and blade.. Then micro/scrim to polish off
