    The week before christmas i find you get the most amount of tips for your efforts, ive got my favourite week this week with around 100 customers to clean, weather forecast looks good too, reaching a high of 11c wednesday! And all the customers have had an xmas card from me. So hopefully i will get a good chunk of change by the end of the week. Or will i just have 100 empty cards? :sad: :p

    Really? Its hit and miss isnt it, ive had years when ive do e ok and others ****, but i think its important to note the week before is best and each day closer to xmas the more tips u get on average, next mon and tuesday will be the best days i reckon

    I think times are changing. Older customers are good for tips but they are getter fewer. Younger people don't think about tipping, they are making every penny count to pay for christmas. Often they are always at work when you call so there is no relationship with them other than, windows cleaned, card through door and being paid online.

    I have done pretty well for tips though probably not quite as good as last year. Still a week and a bit to go, so still hoping for loads more.
