    Product Name: Vikanshine Kit

    Where to get it: Gardiners

    Your rating out of 10: 9.5

    Review:

    Whats included:

    Microfibre clothes
    Microfibre pads
    Spray bottle ( to put pure water in )
    Short pole

    Does a fantastic job. only went through 2 pads... and i cleaned a big pub and also cleaned retail premises...

    All u do is spray pure water on to the window or your microfibre pad and scrub :) u can see all the dirt coming off... does an amazing job... aslong as the windows are cleaned people dont care how u clean them :p

    The microfibre clothes u get.... are 5 star... very good clothes... leaves no smears at all....

    i only rated it 9.5 because it should come with a bag to put all yo ur equipment in other then that its very good and is well worth it people ! :)

    Fair review H but still don't see it being half as good as a blade, high level maybe it's handy but down low ya may as well have bought a few microfibres and a spray bottle.


    Or some trad gear maybe.

    and how much did the kit cost you? i think you should factor the exorbitant cost into your review aswell maybe?

    £90!!!! Are you using this on ground level work? I'm sure it's take you at least 3 times as long as it would with equipment at half the price! Whats your plan for small panes?

    Spray bottle from pound shop (or unger soab), 1 damp cloth, 1 microfibre = couple of quid (multiply for lots of glass).

    Same thing but costs 1/45th

    That is ridiculous price.

    No way would I ever buy something that will really be as good as trad
