How do I clean the outside of my hung windows? They are inaccessible from the outside.

Can I wash my windows without using a window cleaning product?

How do I clean the outside of my casement windows? They are inaccessible from the outside.
A casement window opens like a door in that the sash pivots on a vertical axis (like hinges). Open it 90 degrees, and there will be enough room between the frame and sash to access the outside surface.
