    Tradded for 24 winters and it sometimes isn't fun
    Asda do cheap 5l tubs of antifreeze concentrate..a big splash in the bucket should help

    I fill my bucket with hot water, then put my applicator in the bucket on the way to first job. By the time I get there, its unfrozen

    First job for me today was a trad job. It usually takes me an hour to do. It took just under 2 hours today :eek: -4, my hands were sticking to the ladders it was that cold. The water was freezing on impact. Luckily the woman insists I use her hot water tap for water. I was mopping the window and then blading an icy mess off. I had to keep dunking the applicator in the hot water and rub it all over the glass to warm the glass up so that I could blade it off properly. The woman had to foot the ladder on 3 windows as well because the block paving was slippery.
