In the past, I have used newspapers & paper towels, with a window cleaning fluid, If you have ever washed your indoor windows, you know all the circles & motions you have to go through for each window. With this Speed Clean Indoor Window Cleaning pad, I sprayed on 3 squirts of window cleaning fluid directly onto the cleaning pad, as directed. On one window, I used a straight horizontal stroke going from one side of the window all the way to the other. I resprayed the pad when it felt dry. On another window I used vertical strokes going from top to bottom. In both cases the windows were cleaned with just one pass. This is a work saver & liquid cleaner saver. The cleaning pad is secured to the body by a Velcro type hook & loop design. It easily detaches from the body, for cleaning accumulated dirt off the fabric pad. The cleaning pad body connects to the handle with a universal type of joint, so it keeps the pad properly oriented with your hand movements. The handle accepts a screw on extension pole for higher windows. This is a great product.
