    There is no real quick way to be honest especialy if they are old delicate leaded glass windows.

    The old trad way maybe best on filthy interior leads
    Shammy leather, dry & buff every individual pieces of glass which will seem to take forever so charge accordingly. Don't press to hard though as some can be very fragile.

    i do a massive listed building a private school. If they are proper leaded window wet them up scrim off and buff with micro fibre cloth. dont put to much pressure on them or you will bow them or worse still push the glass out and that is very easy to do. The place i do most of the windows are roughly 2ft by 3ft sections made up of diamond shaped pieces of glass and each 2x3 is about £500
