    Can someone give me some pointers on how to properly rinse on the glass or even better a video.

    I was cleaning some dormers above a conservatory yesterday and it was a nightmare!

    Thanks a lot.

    PS - I know you need a compatible brush to do it and I have (Gardiners medium extreme)

    What was the problem, there's no special technique apart from rinse the whole pane.

    It's pretty much exactly the same, instead of lifting the brush head off the glass to rinse you leave it on and work down the window with the brush. Try it out on your own windows to get the hang of it.
    I personally prefer rinsing on the glass with hot water.

    So it is as simple as resting the whole brush head on the glass with very little pressure and then chasing the water down as per normal?

    Pay attention to tops, bottoms, corners and edges to make sure they are rinsed properly by tilting the brush if you have to. Simples...

    Thanks a lot mate.

    I knew it sounded like a stupid question but I just wanted to make sure I had it right.

    Thanks again!

    And thanks smurf. You must have replied while I was replying ;-)

    I've not tried one myself but a swivel neck might also help on awkward windows too.
