The Cleaning Experts at A Clean Streak answer your toughest cleaning questions.
Diane F. from Coupeville asks: Hi…I have a very unique problem that I’m hoping you can help me solve. This autumn we adopted a 2 year old, 143 lb. Newfoundland named Barney. Barney is the love of our lives, but like all dogs in his breed, he can’t control his slobbering, and his favorite place to sit (inside or out) is right against our patio door. Not only does he stick half his head into his water bowl when he’s drinking, but after drinking he’ll shake off all that water…and this, combined with his natural slobber, and his “nose art”, has created a sticky mess on our windows. We’ve tried using commercial window cleaners, and even simple soap and water, but everything we’ve tried just seems to compound the problem. We don’t want to use harsh chemicals because we’re afraid Barney might just give those windows a taste when we’re not watching. Any tips you could share to help us get rid of this mess?
