Hey guys, if you have a problem with black spot on conservatory roof finials that wont scrub off easily, tie a magic sponge on to the end of the harris pole with an elastic band, dip it in de-greaser and that will have it off in no time [emoji106] saved me from despair today.

P.s. dont scrub finials with force, they are only glued on. one time a few years ago i had a spire fly off, felt like a prat then [emoji85]

Usually finials are in a chanel on the top plastic bit

You can unscrew the end pointy post then slide them all out and clean them in a bucket of chemical and water then put them back on

Good idea should try it with the flexiclamp a tool that hardly gets a mention that's very versatile, brilliant for internal Connie plastics.

Sorry it's called fixi clamp I used to use it a lot with a towel to dry the wet drips of fascia, cladding but now I use the internal pads system for them, but the fixi clamp with damp towel/microfibres for internal Connie plastics make the job really easy also when you get akward glass panels that go into a tight point just use a detailing clothes. Honestly is a great bit of kit.

Hman is the australian guy who makes things to try and make a window cleaners working day easier , the problem is he is about 10 years behind the companies that have already invented what he thinks he has made 😂😂😬😬

Just remember approx 2 weeks ago I bought a couple of brushes from home bargains they were quite cheap but excellent quality extra dense thick flock bristles short handle and long handle versions they are called Dip and wash the scrubbing power on these are better than anything I have ever tried.

The short handle version I'm going to convert to take a gardiner quikloc I believe that these could be be the ultimate finial and plastics brush for Connie roofs.

It would be good to join the two brush heads in a v shape for the conny roof beams.
