Sooooo..."one Smart Duck, SHE felt Smart" (repeat, repeat, repeat)
Decided to clean my upstairs windows. Didn't want to use a ladder to reach the outsides of my interior double panes---there are 12 total windows what with 3 panels, 2 panes + 2 storm windows per dormer and there are 3 dormers.
The wood needs help. Some of the panes slide pretty easily, others need some help. I am working with one of the latter, using soap and oil to lubricate. Last time up it won't move, I use my elbow to push it down and break the upper pane.
Just one little cut on my finger, NO animals were allowed upstairs (mostly bc the cats and the puppy trash stuff), so only me with the shattered window. I got all of the pieces bagged up in a dog food bag, and used my Electrolux to get all of the shards. (I keep a Bissell cheap sweeper upstairs bc of low traffic for most sweeping but it doesn't have much power. However it can pick up dust which is "poison" to my Electrolux. Every tool has it's purpose.)
Now we HAVE to have the local, in town roof and window folks out. I have to replace 3 window panes, the one I broke and two other missing storm windows.
Snow Tomorrow Night--NO KIDDING!!!
Glad you did not get cut bad.
