    Hiya everyone - Trad Cleaners here...

    Had a pretty mild first winter not too many problems, cheers for tips btw made it that much easier and was well prepared

    Have some concerns about the nice weather even tho loving the window cleaning in the sun!! #TanLines lol

    Have been considering wearing sunglasses but I don't think this is going to work as I'm unsure about seeing the detailing of the glass etc but haven't tried it, what does everyone else do obviously don't look at the suns reflection directly but are we damaging our eyes at all ??

    advice appreciated
    Thanks

    I was wondering about sunglasses yesterday. I normally wear Ray-bans but don't want to **** them up while I'm working.

    Polarised glasses I've found are good, sometimes slightly dearer than bog standard but reduce glare alot more

    I usually wear bloc, but recently bought a few more around the £10 cause they're going to go missing.

    What about those clip over shades di?

    can u see the glass as well? our first bout of hot sun on dry glass, working out how not to leave streaks as water/soap drying quickly onto glass, saw a WFP window cleaner on a house same day as us finishing looked mint whereas us tradding have to be careful on detail with sun blaring on glass, got round to back where no sun and took half the time!!
    lot to learn ....

    Tried all sorts over the years, I just accept the fact I will be blinded these days lol.

    Will probably get some prescription sun glasses this year though.
