Window Cleaning

Kids can build their window cleaning skills -- and make a bit of money -- by offering their services to others.

Materials

  • Glass cleaner (or vinegar and water)
  • Paper towels or dry cloths
  • Small, portable stepladder
  • Soft brush
Directions

Offering your services as a window cleaner will bring you plenty of customers. You should offer to clean windows both on the inside and the outside.

  1. Before you begin, remove any mud, spider webs, or dirt film with a soft brush or rag.
  2. Spray on the glass cleaner and wipe off while still wet, remembering to get into the corners.
  3. Using a clean, dry cloth or paper towel, polish thoroughly one more time.
  4. Change towels frequently and repeat the process if the window is still not sparkling clean.
  5. Avoid getting the glass cleaner on any finished wood surfaces.
  6. Dispose of the used paper towels or take home the cloths to be washed, dried, and used again.
Note: Leave an announcement or flyer describing your window cleaning service at the houses in your neighborhood. Include the times you are available and the amount(s) you charge.
