    This technique has been used in UK for years....

    It sounds like the seal has broken and would need repair if possible

    I’m wondering if these are double pane or storm windows. When the seals broke on out 30-year-old windows there was condensation between the glass, no bugs or webs. Just sayin’... are you sure these aren’t (old-fashioned) storm windows and not double-pane?

    Broken (double-pane) seals require window replacement.

    Storm windows - remove, inspect, clean, repair, store or replace depending on the season.

    Double hung windows (far out possibility)? Tip out the lower pane and clean.

    If there is dirt or webs between the two pieces of glass, then the seal has been broken and the vapor has been compromised. They are no longer energy efficient. There is not supposed to be any way bugs or dirt could get between the glass. I'm sorry to say that there is no way to clean between the glass.

    I have checked also, because I have cloudy spots on my french doors. The only way is to have someone come out and replace the window part of the door because the seal has been broken and the gas they fill them with has leaked out. Can't afford that right now, so I'll just have to live with it for a while longer.

    The seal has been compromised and the glass panels will need to be replaced not the whole window. I Know Ace Hardware sells double pane glass panels. They also install. I replaced many double glass panels when I was a maintenance supervisor at a nursing home.
