    Well I now know I have got too much free time on my hands as I have started making random videos for you tube. My first was last week showing first efforts with a Unger 0 degree Swivel Loc well this next one is a quick (ish) demonstration as to how we do a first clean at Green Window Cleaning.

    It's not intended to teach grannies how to suck eggs just to help total amateurs get an idea as to how to get a decent result with ease.

    Constructive comment always welcome.

    Nice demo green, good for your target audience, include as much info as possible for beginners, stuff that might seem really obvious can really NOT be obvious to a total beginner like I was in January (and in lots of ways still am). Things like, how many windows before you get a new cloth out, separate cloth for sill/frame and window detailing, how damp the mop should be, remember to change the squeegee blade if needed, I guess actually it's never ending if you include everything!

    What I don't see a lot of is vids of trad guys teaching newbies how to use ladders safely when trad window cleaning tops. Now that would be interesting to see.

    Unlike these numpties :D

    I did one today but instead of the usual soaking i used diluted ubik in a spray bottle and a wet microfibre to wipe it off with
    A lot less water everywhere

    Ladder videos, especially bps triple combi with brace and standoff set for roofline, would be so popular I predict they'll win the sun dance film festival ;-)

    Not a hope in hell Smurf, the man that does a youtube video on how to use an extension ladder safely will end up as the accused in every court in the land with the Scousers (Fast Show reference) standing there with all their limbs in a cast saying 'well judge I watched the video on youtube and Mr Smurfy said this is how it's done, he didn't say I couldn't wear me wifes lap dancing outfit with me kid's roller skates whilst doing it so I want compensation!'

    But slightly more seriously, if you want some advice on how to use a ladder safely come see me and i'll give you a couple of hours of my time but if you think it's going on video to be scrolled through and ignored at high speed then regretted later well think again.

    I would not want the indirect responsibility of such potential mishaps Smurf.
