Guess that stain?cleaning bucket

There are multiple stains that may be clouding your view like: 

  • paint
  • varnish
  • encrusted insects and their droppings 
  • traffic pollution
  • renovation grime and dust
  • cooking grime
  • fingerprints
  • marks made by children
  • pollen
  • dust
  • salt spray
  • pet marks

While many stains can be cleaned with a simple household detergent, your window cleaner may also use specifically designed scraper or a scourer. Be sure to clean de-staining tools thoroughly so they are ready to use next time - so you don't accidentally add to the a insect stain some cooking fat from last time you washed your windows.
