    Not for me. It takes to long! IMO.

    No, only the ones that are a real PITA to get to from the outside are cleaned that way.

    not unless the windows can't be reached from the outside.

    Same as everyone else here. Rarely clean them from the inside... you have to awkwardly balance the window and squeegee 'backwards'.... it's a pain, nose to glass outside is much faster most of the time

    For me it depends on the window. Some tilts are
    not easy to mess with.

    I feel I can do a better job easier from the outside.

    Depends on the windows and what issues I would
    have using a ladder (obstacles or slanted ground)

    Whatever gets me out of there quickest

    Rarely tilt them in unless there is an awning or a tree growing up close to them. Its also nice to have the tilt in option if a solarium is under the window too! Some windows will actually get weak and wont stay up if you pass them through the spring loaded tracks too much. The tracks ar designed to add friction to the sides of the window frames to keep them from sliding/falling down in the unlatched position. I see these windows shown below alot. They suck to tilt in.

    I'd love to have some of those windows around here. Is very rare when we come across something like that and most of the time they screw everything installing plantation shutters, so no way to tilt them in
