    I used to add vinegar or flash but now i just use an eco type washing up liquid
    It always seems to shine more
    I use this at the moment for 50p from wilkos as i use only water in the bucket and add soap to the applicator so it lasts ages
    This bottle was full on monday morning and that's all i have used
    Very slippy too

    Same. Ive started using white vinegar, can notice the difference. Did an fsg and windows job on monday and the custy asked me what i used to clean the windows when i went back the next day to collect, says she noticed how well the rain runs down the window? Not sure if its anything to do with the vinegar though? Nevertheless was pleasing to see how pleased she was with everything as far as to pay me an extra 3 quid when i clean the windows.

    Vinegar does leave a shine i suppose but it is more the fact that it is a brilliant de greaser that i used to use it
    Takes grease and muck off the glass easily

    This.and the fact that it adds extra cleaning power without adding any more gunkiness.
