    Just wondering what detergent everyone uses? I'm coming to an end of my usual one and looking to try something different and more cost effective

    I should of mentioned the porcupine applicator... Great quality and it seems to last a long time before wear and tear kicks in!!!

    Fairy Origional for me. Would be interesting to try others but as someone said in another thread if it aint broke don't try to fix it. Years ago I did try Squeegee off but wasnt impressed, I tend to think these more expensive detergents aimed at window cleaners are just that detergent like all the rest only more expensive.

    Miracle detergent. Never use anything else. Covers any mistakes and cleans sills too. Only 9.99. Five litres lasts a long time
