When I'm (not) cleaning windows

Abstract:
Enviro Glass Solutions are now providing a service where they treat windows with a substance called Tio2 which transforms normal windows into self cleaning windows by using nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is the use of particles one billionth of a metre in size. This changes the physical properties of the glass by chemically bonding with its surface meaning that grime will be burned away by a photo catalytic process triggered by the sun.

Untreated windows require cleaning up to fifty times a year to retain their clarity. Windows treated with Tio2 will self clean every time it rains (so somewhat more than fifty times a year in these parts). The process lasts up to two years
