A woman in Britain breaks the record for the fastest window cleaning

Cleaning the windows

A woman from Britain followed in her father's footsteps and broke the Guinness World Record by cleaning three office windows in 16.13 seconds.

Aliscia Burrows, 33, cleaned three 45in by 45in windows while competing at the Manchester Cleaning Show and ended up breaking the record for the fastest window cleaner in the female category by 0,15 seconds.

Burrows does not work as a window cleaner, but the speed has been inherited from her father -Terry "Turbo" Burrows, who is a professional cleaner who holds the same record, except in the men's category, 9.14 seconds.

"Although I was never in the window cleaning profession, my childhood was very much involved with it," Burrows said.
