    I never really add to barrels, as that is the water contaminated.

    I always spray onto brush and then you are still rinsing with pure water.

    But if you add a smidge it wont massively damage the tds

    Personally I don't add anything the the water or brush for windows and frames.

    I use UPVC cream cleaner on the brush for cladding, fascias and sofits.
    Or a cleaner for conservatory roofs.

    I find some of that stuff in the astonish cleaning range works just as good at times too.

    Sorry to be a pain? I've never used ecover or stuff like it before, I just usually scrub and rinse lots of times but still get the odd spots so I'm gonna try it. Do you just squirt the ecover on the brush then clean windows and frames as normal??

    NOOOOOOOOO LOL

    If you squirt on the brush you will be cleaning for hours.

    One second squeeze in a bucket 3or4 liters of water then you can dip your brush in the bucket, then clean the house as normal.

    When scrubbing away on the glass and frames. Turn water on then off then on then off.

    You will save a lot of water, IF you need to save water.

    When i was running from barrels a few years back. On a first clean i would clean the customers house using ecover and water from tap.

    THEN i would clean the whole house in pure.

    Worked a bloody treat, now im ok with water (tank in van)

    Ahhhh silly me, I'll pop home and get a spare bucket then lol! I've got a 50l trolley on a trailer with 10 25l barrels and 50m of hose so it's like a van mount but I can take trolley off trailer for the awkward ones :)
