    Got a £18.00 one off job for insides and outsides to be done this sunday as shes moving house so she wanted her house cleaning good.

    I just bought this for cleaning insides traditional.

    http://www.tesco.com...isions_215-1684

    And i also bought a squeege and bucket

    In the bucket i mix water and liquid

    The bottom right of the picture i use to clean the window i soak the window up with all liquid and give it a good clean.... then i squeege it off

    Any water that is left on the sills i just wipe it down with a towel.


    When i clean i will put a towel on the floor just to make sure nothing goes on the floor

    is this okay ? is this how it should be done lads ? thankyou

    Buy better because you'll use it again H and ya don't want to buy new kit every other week mate. All you needed was a couple of cloths/microfibres for frame/sill, an applicator. squeegee, channels and a scrim/microfibre for detailing. Oh and a bucket/sprayer.

    Oh and if you've not practised fanning technique straight pull with the squeegee, it takes a bit of practise does that.

    Ok go to wilkos, get their window cleaning kit. Throw everything else in the bin except the applicator and 2 sleeves, will cost you a fiver.

    I bought one when practising when started and still use it on the worst first cleans. I do put foam in it though.
