    there is no wonder cure, when its really hot theres not a lot you can do other than use a really wet applicator, one thing i do is arrange the round for the day based on the sun, if you have certain houses to do that u know are hard work in the sun then try to time them, i'e, hit them in the morning before the sun comes round or in the afternoon if its out of the sun then

    Must admit that I haven't tried Sorbo glide yet, but Sorbo plied his trade in southern california where the weather is, well ,hot! so I figure he knows a thing or two about working in hot weather. Have a look at his vids on youtube, very informative and he's an engaging character.

    Use already hot water. Evaporation is speeded up with a big acceleration in heat, so warmer water will evaporate quicker.

    That is of course the MAIN REASON people have heated wfp systems.
