    Hi all. Just wondered if there is a knack for cleaning inside of conservatory roofs? I did my first one today. It was an absolute scorching day so the solution dried up by time i came to blade it so left smears. I tried damp clothing them scrimming it which just left those horrible shiny smears. Eventually, i just used some detergent spray and microfibre cloth; this seemed to work best, but im dissapointed with the oberall result. Have i done somethong wrong?

    Haha many thanks! What made it worse was it was like a sauna, and there were blinds up; they were drawn but the wire strings thats held them in place were there so i had to work around them. Pure hell. Next time i may just pass on the inside. I probably made it look worse any way. Luckily it was part of a very big job (gutters, windows, fascias, soffitts and con roof). The overall effect was good, just displeased with the inside.

    i do them with a light shortish 4 ft telescopic pole , with a soaped up swivel 14 inch tbar on the end . scrub scrub then drape a scrim over the same tbar and buff off . id use about 6 scrims in the buff process by the end of it

    you could probably sell that idea- the boot camp scenario/ some folk might pay good money to sweat it out
