    Way I do it is straight pulls on top half/third first one is at an angle from about a foot to right of top left corner, bring blade into left corner at an angle and then down. quickly wipe on dry micro then at an angle again starting on a dry bit take blade right across top to right and then down the right side. After that it's just straight pulls down wiping the rubber and starting in a dry bit every time. Fan the bottom job done.

    Hope that wasn't too much jibberish lol

    Used to do a garage with 2 windows about 15 ft square like that in about 3-4 minutes.

    A few months ago I pulled up to do a butches shop window.

    Outside there was 4 traditional lads with there boss next door in the laundrette drying there scrims.........no joke lol

    Any way I normally use wfp but this time thought I would show these young lads how its done....

    So got my 1 metre harris pole out and done it traditionally.......done it as quick as wfp

    I use one of those car washing poles that come with a brush, place I get my magic sponges sells the whole thing for about a fiver. Chuck the brush away it's rubbish but pole thread fits the cone on top of harris so a much lighter shorter pole extends to approx 8-9 ft plenty big enough and light as a feather.
