    Could be a number of things. Try wiping the rubber just before you 'blade off'. Water need to be soapy but not runny, the angle of the Liquidator channel usually has to be altered (is different from an ordinary channel). Might be pressing on too hard, or not hard enough. Liquidator channels seem like they're temperamental, but they are not, it's just a matter of getting it right and then it's great.

    I still get arched lines now and then on window but I just wipe off now afterwards and try not to let it bother me so much. I can't be doing too much wrong as getting a lot of work through word of mouth and facebook recommendations on the local business pages now. I have actually found the rubber works better when just cut straight like a normal rubber instead of the angle and the little 90° part. I'm like you, I've tried different liquids etc but still get it.

    Quick question, I dont assume unger rubber fits in the Moerman liquidator? Or do you have to cut the sides to make it fit? I am thinking about buying one

    cheers lads and have a good weekend

    I originally used Ungers (hard) because that's what I always used, but have gone over to Moerman recently and have found them great. I am using the soft ones which seem to wear out quick, so when they've finished I am moving on to hard.

    Use facelift razr it will last forever
    Unger fits but the length (front to back) is a touch shorter than moerman or razr which sits funny on the end clips
    Still works but not 100% and feels funny

    I was given one of these once, but couldn't get on with it, it wore out too soon.
