    Hey guys,
    I am new to this forum and I just had a look around it but I couldn't find anything about green window cleaning - what I mean is cleaning without using chemicals, just some natural products and stuff or homemade ones.
    Anyone got any tips or recipes?

    Well most on here use wfp (Water fed pole) which is green as all we use is purified water.

    "cleaning without using chemicals, just some natural products"

    :)

    natural products have chemicals in them. water is a chemical. there is no real standards for green cleaning, you can say using WFP is green as it's just water, you can also say traditional is green if you use only natural, bio-degradable products to clean the windows etc.

    Ok, ok, my mistake - what I meant was non-toxic, that doesn't poison the environment...

    I think you would have to feed it to them to do any actual harm
    I used it on some heavy soiled pvc window frames and they came up like new,it is really good for cleaning for the money.I put a bit on the brush and then work it in then rinse,it rinses really well and leave no residue to cause spotting
