    As a last resort.

    Do you have a pump up sprayer? You could pre-spray the glass with a Virosol mix, only do say 4 windows at a time and see if that softens the :turd: up. I'll tell you what I've been using on first cleans lately, I made up a mixture of pure and Virosol and put it in a 1 litre spray bottle. I spray it on the brush, turn the water on and it works a treat. Lots of rinsing is needed though.

    Just grab your ladder and get up there and scrape it off with a window cleaners scraper, simples.

    Surely it's quicker putting ladders up. Just for the first clean. Why so many frightened of going up a ladder.

    Another way is I glued some strong Velcro to my pole brush on the side of it & on my other brush I glued a scourer on it. Gets bird **** off & fly **** (when you can see it). But surely ladders is best rather then all that palava spraying it.

    Dave i carry Ubik in my cheap Chinese back pack ready to roll it really helps on first cleans but with the pure have to do loads of rinsing, but has cut my first clean time down massively.
