Q: I live on the second floor of an apartment building and I swear the outside of my windows haven't been washed since the building was erected in the post WWI era. No matter what I do from my side of the glass, there is a film that remains on the outside of the windows that is extremely distracting (and gross!). It ruins any pleasure I may get from the morning sunlight. Any tips on getting landlords to wash the external surface of upper floor windows?
