    I,ve been window cleaning for about 5 months now using wfp, I do however have a couple of windows that I do trad, my question is what do you trad guys do to stop your leg getting wet from the t bar? its fine at the moment as the weather is warm but I don't fancy a wet leg when it's freezing cold.

    I know what you mean, water off the t bar, from in the Bucket on a belt, water comes off on to your leg!

    I just got used to it, but happens less when your squeeze water out of the mop, and make sure you empty your bucket on a belt too!

    maybe you are putting to much water on the applicator i understand on very hot days youneed more water on the glass as its drys very fast . i always dip the applicator then run it through my hand to squeeze some of the excess water of try this might help

    I dont get a wet leg.

    Don't soak applicator. I probably only submerge aplpicator half into bucket of water. I then squirt ecover onto applicator and rub across it with bottom of the bottle to lather it up nicely. This lasts for quite a few windows.

    When it's drying up, just half submerge applicator again. If you're plunging it into your bucket and sloshing it into your boab, that's why your legs wet. If you're not doing this, then it might have a hole in the bottom ;)
