    Hey Guys

    Hope your well :)

    I have been traditionally cleaning some interior windows. We had to pull some film off the glass which left a glue residue. Apart from my fingers dropping off trying to take the glue off, how on earth and what is the best option to get this glue residue off the glass?

    I have tried very hot (boiled from a kettle) soapy water with blade but to no avail (takes ages) . Any of you chaps no what is best to use before I go back on Sunday to finish the job.

    Cheers
    Darran

    one bottle did me a 9ft x 8ft window. no you just spray it on to cover the surface, leave for about 10 minutes and then scrap it off,
    take a load of really old cloths or paper towel, as you will see how it comes off in the video

    just uploading it to youtube now, and i'll put it on here when done
