Window Cleaners

I've been sat inside all day because it looked so dull and miserable outside.

Where are all the window cleaners in this country?

That's your answer......

And it can clean load of stuff.....

Re: Window Cleaners

Inward opening windows mean you're meant to clean them yourself.

Re: Window Cleaners

Haha-you made me laugh,for a few reasons....
but-maybe i can help you either purchase some rose colored glasses so the whole scence looks more....handlable..or I can come and have them cleaned for you.if they are tall,i'm not-have a stool?Only the basic cleaners,under10francs I'm sure-if you would like.
pm me on this site and perhaps the world will seem a little more clear-but,zurich city limits please.
Unfortunately,I have references and experience.Yes,this is my sideline work-
Thks,Wl

My guess is, being Switzerland, it would be at least CHF25 a window + driving time costs + ladder rental + bucket rental + shampoo costs - based on the hairdressers/dentists/opticians/electricians.

Hmm. You might be right. It might be cheaper (and more fun) to break them all and get new ones on the insurance...

Although a steam cleaner has a certain gadget appeal.

Rose tinted glasses definitely wouldn't go with my hat.
