    Can I rinse pure water over normal water and it will dry with no spots?

    Yes, you just have to use enough pure water to rinse off or dilute the tap water.

    We sometimes wash a dirty conservatory with tap water and finish off with pure.

    In a soft water area then maybe ok. In a hard water area then maybe not especially if the tap water starts to dry on the glass or you have not rinsed all the tap water off when it's still wet.

    Minerals in hard tap water tend to stick to the finnes of the glass so it is important to rinse it down properly with pure water.

    You're right Smurf. We live in a softish water area 125ppm so we can do it. The risks are too high for cleaners working in a hard water area. Sorry.

    I wouldn't do it on a warm sunny day though, even with our water..

    Ive cleaned connies with tap then gone over with pure, but you have to clean it with the pure thoroughly, scrub everything agiain like a maintenance clean, dont just splash it
