  2. Water freezing on the glass

    Using trad today and water froze up the second it hit the glass. Not sure if isopropanol works .. never tries it but curious to know if others have used it? Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  3. Snow is a real pain in the a$$

    In Dublin no snow but Baltic conditions and water freezing on the glass this morning when I was out... so annoying. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  5. Christmas Windows, spray snow and more! Why?

    Would you recommend it for likes of removing the marker aswell? Can you put UBIK on an applicator?
  6. Christmas Windows, spray snow and more! Why?

    It's so old hat. Years ago stores used to do it but for some reason this I have several, of of which is horrendous. I'm not volunteering for it and if they ask I'm going to charge silly money for it. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  7. Why oh why oh why do people put that spray snow on windows!!? Between that and peple using markers to draw on the glass too, come January it makes it an absolute nightmare to remove. Got some awful post Christmas windows to do.. dreading it. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  8. New gloves!

    I have small enough hands so anything bigger would swamp me. As is it's awkward to detail with. They are average but have to do for this winter. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  9. New gloves!

    Hard to get the combo of great weather proofing but also flexible enough to work and detail efficiently . I hate bulky gloves. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  10. New gloves!

    Yeah I'm surprised nobody has developed a decent pair of gloves, it's ridiculous.
  11. New gloves!

    Gone through so many gloves to try find a pair that actually work.I have been using Skytec Argons for weeks now and they are pretty average to be honest. I would not recommend them at all. Yes they are waterproof and they are not too bulky but your fingers won't be warm for too long working out in the cold. Waterproof, warm but flexible and not too bulky. Not too much to ask in a pair of gloves surely.... eh apparently it is!!! The search continues.... Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. Nationwide wondow cleaners

    There's an abundance of retail work for independent cleaners over here. Sure the nationals try to swallow up the big chain stores but let them have them as the big chains always pay the worst as they have the biggest overheads. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  13. Nationwide wondow cleaners

    Just came across this thread and it does seem that a lot of stores are happy enough to get a bang average job off big nationals as the one bill is handier for accounts Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. Quitting - Employ/Lease?

    Am considering subbing some of my work out at some stage as i have accumulated a lit of work but I'm dreading it to be honest. Firstly finding someone who is right is a mine field and then hoping they do a good job and are reliable is another. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  15. Xline Reach and Wash system

    Xline really went the wrong way about this. Getting your back up against the wall and individually challenging people was a very bad idea, especially on an open platform like this. The bad press clearly is warranted, as a business they need to accept their faults and try to improve by listening and understanding the customers... is that not what every successful business strives to do? Challenging anyone ever wronged by Xline was not a smart play and it seems to have backfired pretty badly. They really have a long way to go to compete with the others suppliers out there. Certainly haven't done their bad rep any favours in the last few days on here.
