Clean windows are part of a clean household for many. Do you want to make your cleaning tasks easier? Find out here what you need to look out for when buying window cleaners and what criteria you can use to recognize good window cleaners.

We have not only compiled a checklist with the most important criteria for window cleaners but also many product recommendations for you. We will help you to choose the right window cleaner.

Checklist For Window Cleaners

Clean Windows
  • The most important criterion for a window cleaner is, of course, that the windows are clean after cleaning and do not have any unsightly streaks and stripes.
  • There are individual devices to buy or sets, such as the FenWi window cleaner professional set.
  • If a telescopic pole is included, it is usually between 70cm – 200cm long. There are also extra long versions that measure up to 400cm, like the FenWi set mentioned above.
Window Wiper
  • There are classic window wipers. They have a microfiber fabric cover with which the dirt is removed from the window.
  • A squeegee is then used to remove the excess water and ensure streak-free cleanliness.
  • Often, these wipers have a rod as an extension, so you can get to high windows without much effort.
Battery-Powered Window Vacuums
  • In principle, window vacuums work like window squeegees.
  • However, with them, the dirty water is sucked in directly during the extraction process. This prevents the dirty water from running down the window.
  • There are window cleaning kits that can include the following things:
    • Microfiber cloth.
    • adjustable telescopic rod (sometimes with an angle joint).
    • Rubber lips.
    • Bucket.
    • Squeegee.
  • In the case of window vacuums, the sets consist of various attachments and/or a spray bottle.
