    It's the time of the year. If I was a YouTube then I would show you how to avoid them in the winter but it's a bit hard to describe.

    If a customer moans just say it's a small downside of the trad method. They can always go for a wfp cleaner but then they will be trading the odd stripe, with the odd spot. Marks of one form or another are inevitable when the sun is low, so long as they are clean it is good enough. If they are too picky then it's a cause for being dumped. The picky ones are usually the ones that told you they fired their last windy- my alarm bells always go off. There is simply no pleasing this type of person.

    Skillful rinsing and knowing problematic seals stops marks from WFP and of course 0ppm (below 5 still good). Still get the odd tinker but generally spotless. Only time there is issues is on bad first cleans, but always warn the customers they can spot first time up. I always rinse cm below top seals.

    Low sun is a *****, annoys me how many of my regulars pay me good money but never clean there insides looks awful, yet never take me up on doing the insides a couple of times yearly lol!
