Unique Cleaning Windows Situation


SITUATION
Have a two story home, only one fully useable arm, can't climb a ladder, dirty winows.

IDEA
Spray clean and rinse the five windows on the front of our house. My idea is to pre-rinse using a high pressure stream of water. Next, using a house end sprayer apply some type of heavy duty cleaner* then rinse with high pressure stream of water. Next, spray on Windex Outdoor Window Cleaner (has it's own hose end sprayer) then rinse with fine to medium spray of water. Repeat if necessary.

MY QUESTION
What would be the best heavy cleaner to spray on first? I've thought about using Simple Green or Dawn Dish Detergent.

All suggestions and comments welcome.

I think the dish detergent does a better job then the glass cleaner type products.

Dishwashers seem to achieve a sparkling clean without touching the glass, so hopefully your method will work too.

Have you considered a window cleaning service? They are more reasonable than you might think...
Otherwise, I'd tend to agree with the above.
