    Here you will see how easy it is to scrub /squeegee glass balustrade on the outer side.
    Using Squeegee of Future this one has a scrubber pad on it.

    I used to clean t c harrisons and we had to jump over and harness up as leaning over you was a foot away from reaching the bottom of the glass, luckily they was a 20 inch ledge to balance on

    Wfp lol or if I had to squeegee them then I'd be smoother and slower so I'm not repeatedly moving my squeegee over the same piece of glass and id finish at the bottom not the middle of the side pane as he only has to detail that but finishing at the bottom need don't need to detail anything

    abs; What type of squeegee would you be using??
    Smurf; Is not hard to use at all.
    The beauty is that you scrub / squeegee all in one go.

    2 straight swipes would be a heap easier than that but one floor up its hard to beat a wagtail on a stick
