    Hi all,

    Just order my first WFP kit, but curious. Say in a hot country like Australia you have bird shite really baked on hard onto a up stairs window. Is the WFP going to shift this? If not what's your plan of action for this kind of situation please?

    Thanks,
    Neil.

    No it won't, you'll need a scraper, gardiners sell a super scraper that attaches to there poles, but if you haven't got gardiner poles, then make your own, wfp won't get off what I like call 'cement poo' without some serious scraping

    Thanks Jake. Looks like the traditional pole I have will still be useful then.

    On my old brush i did similar to this except i glued a strip of velcro on the side of the brush instead of making a plastic thingie and just stick on the scrubber if needed and use the side of the brush
    Very effective..especially with old faithful virosol or ubik
    Tbh i haven't had any that a spray of neat virosol won't take off on its own for ages

    I'd try a bit of degreaser on the brush(ubik type chem) first, scrape second
