    welcome Justwindows, good luck with your new venture. check out the Recommended traditional starter kit thread and also worth doing some searches on the forum some very good info here and the subject of washing up liquids has been well discussed before.

    Yes welcome, personally I think the Moerman squeegees are tat, I prefer Ungers S channels or god old ettore brass channels.

    If you look at the top of the 'Traditional Window Cleaning Forum' there is a sticky thread there with lots of recommendations for traditional tools.

    If you're just starting up get a wagtail..more expensive but worth teaching yourself how to use it from day 1
    Also some liquidator channels and handles
    Best to learn with the best tools rather than learn to use them later when your technique is different due to using standard tools
