    Twenty minutes ago I cleaned the front windows on my house. It's gone windy mixed with a bit of rain and the glass is manky again! Gawd knows what the houses look like I've cleaned today :eek:

    I think we are pi$$ing against the wind at the minute. Had to stop using pure today because of sand in the wind ... What a mess . Went to a static pole and mop .... Trad the bottoms

    Thing is what can you do. If we didn't clean because it might rain or might be windy we'd do nothing for 4 months of the year. It's a catch 22 situation. I did my bungalow yesterday & they still look good (trad) but have done em before & after a couple of days they look dirty again.

    It's the first time I've had it like this , after rinsing the glass I was watching it collecting the sand ( it's was sand paper after 5 mins ) Went back to the good old trad way ,,, plodded on sick as parrot by the end , no one complained , but there would of if I had carried on with pure

    One window in particular that I cleaned on my house really gets dirty at the sniff of bad weather. I'd take a picture, but the camera won't focus on the mess left on the glass. And some WFP'ers give a rain guarantee :D

    I was sorting out the van this morning and the wife pointed out that a bird had left its mark all down our large living room window. Rather than get the pole out I just used trd tools. Apart from the missing bird mark you wouldn't think I'd touched it by lunch time. Awful white streaks running across it looked almost salty. It is very windy here so I didn't go out today.
