Haven’t that locally most dish soaps will be fine.Eeeeeeek! Windex is the worst!
Sunlight dish soap never fails
Yes if used with a rag. But not when using traditional window cleaning methods. The squeegee removes the soap and residue, only area that will retain some residue is the seals and that’s not a big deal.Dawn and other dish soaps can leave a film that will cause resoiling. I use Glass Gleam 4 with just a couple drops of dawn to add better glide but the Glass Glean keeps the film from building up.
Windex is good for spray and wipe cleaning but it should be diluted. I dilute it 50/50 with distilled water. Works great, no film.
It can build a film even with a squeegee. It's become an issue on some accounts that get cleaned weekly. After about 6 months problems started to arise.Yes if used with a rag.

Otherwise we would get immediate call backs I’m in the desert and we get lots of dust storms so it would show immediately.
GG4 (glass gleam) works well but has terrible glide for our windows here. Desert sun cooks glass even early in the morning, soon as it’s wet it dries out.
Regardless dawn rocks for the price and obviously you don’t need a whole lot.
If your technique is solid.
You must be adding too much man we’ve never had an issue with it. We also have weekly accounts with a lot of large glass in a very busy place. So we see it very regularly. That’s all most old schoolers use GG4 is just overpriced and you still add Dawn too it bwahahahahIt can build a film even with a squeegee.

GG4 does have terrible glide, lol.
Same here we don’t clean windows much have others doing the cleaning now! Very glad it allows us to focus on getting new businessI dont actually do the windows but we have been doing them for a while now (4yrs)and dawn seems to be the best bet. Both guys we've had doing windows are very experienced and that's what they use, along with really nice high end squeegees
We have a pretty solid window gross per year with lots of repeats
Depends on how hard your water is too.Joy soap is better than Dawn. I've used both and I like joy. Dawn works but the feel isn't as good. In a 5 gallon bucket squirt back and forth and back about half way. That'll get you the right mixture.
I’ve done it with pure water that has a tds of zero but dawn is cheap and fast.Technique is the "best window cleaner". My father cleaned windows for 30 years with just water. Not that I'm recommending that! I like a bit of Mrs Myers applied right on the strip washer for the great smell.
