    Wfp is the obvious answer but if you don't Have one use a wet cloth and a dry one that's the easiest way

    Usually a quick spray, wipe off then buff with a dry cloth.

    Use my wet sill micro, then buff up with a scrim... If it is a very large pane then I'd maybe mop, blade then scrim.. I hate leaded windows lol

    yer the cloth that you buff with gets wet and be no good, so you need another one, ans so on. one cloth to buff with wont last long if they have lots of windows, plus if you have 5 plus houses with them you will need a lot of clothes to clean them all.

    Bear in mind that lead is highly poisonous and you need to minimise your exposure as it is absorbed through the skin. :blink: There was some stuff on the forums several years ago about two window cleaners in Ireland dieing of lead poisoning and this was attributed to working on leaded windows.
