    Washing up liquid- Aldi magnum premium.

    Window soap (only evertried 1): HG Window Soap. Beats the dish soaps hands down, just a bit pricey. I suspect its the same stuff as squeegee off, just different branding, but who knows.

    I used to use HG System, but found it difficult to get recently so started to use Squeegee off, and I think it is the same stuff as HG System, even the packaging, and I've found it OK to use. I add some washing up liquid to it as well.

    You can pick it up in B&Q mate, I stocked up in it last time I went, and even hid a few bottles round the back of the others just in case they run out. ;)

    You'd be hard pushed to beat me at tradding speed with a wfp but the time it takes to go get my trad gear out for the bottoms once i have finished the tops i can just wfp them as quick

    Thinking of making something on my trolley to hold my wagulator and spray bottle so i can have it to hand whenever needed
