    Hello have been asked to clean a house
    However although the panes are quite large they are in fact the old style where there's small frames on the glass
    This slows the job down considerably
    Any ideas - end mop to wet and squeegee or damp scrim and wipe off with microfibre
    Thanks

    That squeegee would only work on those windows, wouldn't work on all windows...


    and I find it funny/really strange when you get people on videos saying:-

    Hi my name is sorbo
    Hi my name is dr squeegee

    ...............no its not! lmao :Image3:

    Great if you got loads of houses with the same size glass it might be worth buying it but if not, either the first way he showed, fan with a small squeegee or if the panes are even smaller than those damp/dry cloths ie: wash on dry off wash on dry off.

    if it is going to be a regular job just cut down a channel to the right size window pane
