Snails Trails

Recommended Posts

Steve Mcknight

Often slowed down terribly brushing at Snails trails on certain houses. (Usually homes with window cill boxes).

Any tips for quick removal? Or is there any preventative measures?

I use vision v2 in my water. I read somewhere once that it's supposed to help cut through snail trails. Not sure how much of a difference it really makes but it does leave the windows extra shiny.

Downstairs if really bad I put a very damp microfibre over them first. Brings them off real quick, then wfp

Thanks for replies guys. I noticed the micro fibre does take them off very quickly. Vision v2 looks good also, I'll try it.

Just a thought, if WFP brushes struggle with snail trails, how much dirt do the brushes leave on the glass?

Yeah but in fairness a snails trail is probably oil based and requires agitation of a different sort. I don't think I'll go back to traditional cleaning because of it lol.

I recently removed the shell from my racing snail as I thought it would make it faster.

If anything, it was more sluggish :D

Of the brushes the flocked do seem to do a better job on snail trails. Mind you I have come across some really stubborn ones that even microfibres won't touch. They seem to almost be permanently bonded onto the glass.

Re Vision, (any of the variations) I used it for the better part of a year and though I could tell it was in the water, for me it did absolutely nothing perceivable to improve my work, not on the plastics or the glass and certainly not on removal of snail trails.

I emphasise 'for me' as I know others appear to have had success with it.

I don't have this issue with my brush. It whips the snail trails off if I press on the glass and use the stiffer middle bristles
