Best window washing tool

Just in from trying to spiffy up the windows on our motorhome for the weekend. Gotta be a better way than using the rubber squeezy. My front window curves around the corner where the squeezy just don't work, and it don't fit on some of the smaller side windows. How do you all wash your windows?

I use windex with paper towels, standing on a step ladder, then I finish with Rain-X. I'm particular about my windshield so it worth the effort of climbing the ladder.

Any good automotive parts supply store will have the hose you need. Measure the length you need, then bring in a sample, as there are different ID sizes.

Windex and paper towels. A squeegee works on flat panes, but not curves. Its ok for the quick bug job while refueling, but if you want clean you have to clean it.

Gel Gloss goes on easy and comes off easy even in the sun. Really makes the windows shine.

Ditto. Throw the Windex away and get Invisible Glass at Walmart. It makes your glass, well........invisible.

I use a ladder and microfiber cloth.

Will second that,, And either paper towels or micro-fiber.

Went to get tint put on my old towed when the A/C failed to help keep it cool... I ask them about prep, they told me "We use this KICK A** window cleaner" and showed me a can of Invisible Glass.. I took him out to the towed and showed him 2 more cans.
(Well 1.x more, one can was only part full).

Fuller Brush used to sell a window washer's brush, this is the kind of thing that is used by professionals who do restaurants, and store fronts and such. There is a fiber brush for applying cleaner, and a squeegee for drying the glass. However this does not solve the curve issue.. But it is a handy tool. Nice full length mop handle (in fact the same handle is used on their rag mop)

Invisible Glass is the best by far I have ever used. As for Rain X, well never again. I actually use Mothers wax on the glass after I wash them. Works great for us and I don't have to continually stand on a ladder trying to remove the streaking residue from Rain X. JMHO of course.
