Removing Shotgun Fungus from windows

shotgun or artillery fungus

Though these specks appear to resemble insect feces, or air-borne pollutants, they are actually mature spore masses expelled from the fruiting bodies of a fungus known as "artillery" or "shotgun" fungus. The fungus gets its name because it ejects or "shoots" spore masses into the air for a distance of up to eight feet. Wherever the spore masses land, they stick like glue. They are difficult to remove and can rapidly become a nuisance on your windows....

Let's face it, for most of us the "clean the windows" task on our list of to-do's is the one that get's continuously pushed back - it always takes up much more than its fair share of our precious free time, and invariably requires far more leaning, stretching, reaching, and frustration than we care to allow into our weekend.

Ahh yes, can't wait to do it all again in just a few short months...

Best way to clean windows?

old fashioned window cleaning

Windex, alcohol, water, newspaper, lint free cloths, easy-of-this, super-fantastic-that....a ladder and elbow grease. Most domestic window cleaning products and techniques remind me of the makeup market - they all claim to be the "one product you'll ever need to buy", yet are always being re-formulated, improved, superseded, and so on. Simply Google "best way to clean windows" and you'll see that despite the availability of "guaranteed" lotions and potions, there's simply no easy-fix to the question. Well, sort of...

old time window cleaner

It's just a piece of glass, how hard can it be right? It's not until you do it yourself that you realise how much time it takes, and how difficult it is to get a piece of glass genuinely clean, no streaks, no dirty corners etc. So how do you find a reputable window cleaner?
