    Hey Guys,
    Any tips for getting tree sap off windows. Having a nightmare on a couple of jobs. Scrubbing like mad (Gardiner duel trim brush) when the glass starts to dry it just reappears. Driving me mad! Also, same issue with a couple off conny roofs with self cleaning glass, Help........
    Thanks, Phil....

    Try squirting Ecover on your brush, froth the glass and scrub with the water flow on till the froth has almost gone and rinse. Conny roofs are going to be harder due to the angle and weight you can get on the glass. You could try using a boars hair brush from Tecbuk http://www.tecbuk.com. Gardiners have brought out a scraper which is very good for bird :turd: and pollen http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/SUPER_SCRAPER.html

    Nothing else for it! Youll have to get up close and personal with a non-scratch scourer and some elbow grease.

    I've used ubik as a boost when using wfp method on tree sap before that worked well. DON'T use it on self cleaning glass though. Also help using hot wfp too.

    Ecover dish soap used as a boost & hot pure water should shift most stubborn crud though on self cleaning glass.
