Most of our clients don't even notice their windows anymore, and for good reason. They're all dirty. We don't know if it is simply human nature or the fact that New Yorker's enjoy the added privacy of a dirty window, but taking care of this small job will spruce up your home and your spirits instantly.
Apple Cleaning is the service we use often. They are friendly, efficient and do an excellent job. Cleaning costs anywhere from $10-12 per window and there is a minimum of $55 per visit. They usually book 2-3 days in advance, but during the busy months need 4-5 days to get to you.
All windows are cleaned with a soap and ammonia (ammonia cuts oil) solution and wiped down by squeegee (paper towels only wipe the dirt around).
If you want to do it yourself, and want to use a more environmentally sound solution, try vinegar but throw in a dash of soap if you want it to work (read this for full instructions).
We've been cleaning ours ourselves these days, as we have handy tilt-in windows that save us from climbing around outside.
