    have you tried taking the water off with a Squeegee this way you can leave the window dry

    Sounds like you've identified the problem, I can think of 2 possible solutions, 1 make the two small windows the first job when you start, do the rest of the house and all being well the one you started with will have stopped dripping down, clean the Biggy, hopefully sorted.
    Other is to do the window as normal do a few more, go back and re rinse the Biggy, perhaps about an inch from the top do a few more, and re rinse again

    i agree with chip i had this problem alot when i first started. also after cleaning the two top windows wipe the bottom of the frame with a scrim it will reduce dripping on the window below after a few months if will go away but always do all the double top windows first to prevent that water mark.

    Do the frames first all the time... then rinse the frames afterwards this brings all the dirt down... now wash the glass only... then rinse the glass.... now the sill will havea lot of dirt on it... so just wipe the sill several times ..... and thats job done.

    this is how i do it :) and havent had 1 complaint yet :D
