Which window is easiest to clean?

Some window styles, by nature of how they operate, are a bit easier to clean than other styles. For example, double hung windows are easier to clean than single hung windows, because both sash of the double hung window tilt inward. On single hung windows, only the bottom sash tilts in for cleaning outside surfaces. Slider windows only feature a lift out sash that can help with cleaning.

For casement windows, ditto the easy cleaning. Just crank the window all the way to its fully extended position, then reach through the opening to clean the exterior of the window.

Some slider windows allow the moveable sash to be lifted out from the inside for easy cleaning. Picture windows have no moveable sashes, so they must be cleaned from the outside.
