    I have seen a few window cleaners, do this before, and decided to make use of it today. Basically, I left one on the lads on a street, where there was a load of jobs, with a set of ladders, bucket and backpack, with cloths in it. I quite like this idea, and it does work quite well. Now I am thinking, if its something I will make use of, what else other than cloths could be handy to have in there.

    So who does it, and what do you have in your backpacks?

    Yeah same.

    I got my bussiness name on the back of my top thought this was great.
    But turns out that cause I carry a bakpack(well more of a stringged sports bag) no one can see it!

    I carry all my spare scrims, microfibres and towls in there.

    And occasionly my lunch, and if I think it will rain, my coat.

    I carry cloths in my window cleaning pouch, and towls on my belt, but soon run out!
    So carry extra cloths and towls in my back pack.
