    Folks, I saw a windie using meths and scrim to clean small windows. For speed I thought this may be a good idea for some of the properties. Does anybody have any comments or concerns please. I have tried it on my own house and it seem to work.

    :D

    Thanks in advance Mick...

    I use a glass cleaner with 2 micros which I Spose is the same. Spray on window wipe with 1 buff with other. Never tried meths tho.

    Hmmm quick spray, quick wipe, quick buff. water would do the exact same thing as meths unless he was using it to remove glue etc surely. I use it on tiny mirrors in lasers and lasers in cd/dvd players but not sure I'd bother on windows. Besides not exactly the safest substance in the world, remember if it catches fire.the flames invisible and very very hot.

    Best way to clean small windows (Trad) (without a squeegee as in window is smaller then 6inch channel)

    Is to use the end of your applicator, wet window, then use a towl to dry then scrim or microfibre to buff.
