    Hi Lads I know this is probably a silly question but ive only experienced wfp and ive read the word "detailing" being said in a few thread's? Please can you explain exactly what's meant by detailing? I'm hoping its something I already do :thumbsdown::thumbsup:
    Cheers Greener :alien:

    When your tradding you squeegee the window & down each side of the window & top of it you can leave maybe 2mm of soap residue. You then get what's called a scrim or microfibre cloth & run it down the edges to clear the soap/water. This is what's called detailing. Doesn't concern you if your wfp. Hope that's clear.

    Detailing is when you finish a window off by using a micro/scrim in your hand and you stick your finger inside it to get right into the frame to clear up the water that's been left behind when you've bladed the window.
