    Dunno if I had a dodgy batch of razrblade Davey but I had a big fat line being left from the middle of a new blade. You could actually feel the indent

    I've had a liquidator for a couple of weeks and was feeling the same it's a great squeegee bit just couldn't get it working like others do, so I had a bit of a practice today after work, I know you have to angle away from window a bit more than usual and thought I was but tried again today and moved it even further and fingers crossed I've got it, feels really strange but I've been determined to get it and seems ok now

    I bought liquidators, used them, they worked fine and now they are in the bottom of the spares bucket.

    I mop the window, then 'pre detail' at the same time as wiping over the frames so they really offer me no benefit to my regular ettore squeegee.

    The only time I believe they are truly a benefit is if you are a window cleaner that only does the glass and not the frames, then they may be quicker but not by enough that I reckon it is worth all the hype.

    Pre detailing is still detailing just doing it first instead of last
    I just like the liquidator especially in a wag handle
    Even if i had to detail i would still use it and yes it does save time over a days work with no detailing to do..

    Yes Davey, but I include wiping down the frames and 'pre' detailing at the same time.

    The frames and 'pre' detailing are not separate tasks to me.

    Are you saying you are only doing the glass Davey?

    If you have seen vids of me worrking or polz as he does the same the frames are wiped every time but wiped with sill cloth not microfibre or scrim and only up to the glass . sometimes i touch the glass but not consciously. .that way the sill cloth can get wet and then rinsed and wrung out but detailing cloth is hardly ever used saving on cleaning cloths so often and saving me time not detailing
