    What the best way to clean windows frames with vents?

    What I always usually do is turn the water off, wipe the top frames that got vent and then turn the water on to clean the windows.

    But I still noticed faint spotting but it not very noticeable at all if you know what I mean unless you stick your face inches away from the windows looking for it.

    Any tips to get spotless windows with vents?

    And skirt round them thereafter. Too many possible issues if you clean vents everytime.

    Do the same as Tuffers, always get them really clean first time, tell customer you might get spotting/runs, possibly wanter inside of glass, then go around them after.

    I've seen houses that are cleaned with WFP where the top frame is absolutely minging. At least do it the first clean if you're a skimper.
