...or reverse psychology, your windows are dirty because you're tirelessly cleaning others, the 'mother Teresa' effect

Went collecting this eve. Knocked on one and whilst waiting glanced at the porch window to my left which I know I used my 10" liquidator on, oh god, the lines! Window looked like a Picasso ffs!

Customer went to get her purse so I legged it to my car grabbed a microfibre and quickly wiped. Oops!

Keefo I'm new to trad and I couldn't do it at all. I got those lines as there was dirt on the rubber. Anyway I switched to hard rubber, more soap (still not loads), but made sure there was a fair bit of water on the glass (especially important if the suns out) and holding the squeegee loosely in the fingers. I was holding it far too tight before. And now I'm tradding far better [emoji106]

Trouble is mate when i hold it loosely and don't press enough i get what Polzn showed in one of his vids, soap marks getting left down middle of squeegee, even moving handle further from window. I'm not having a go at the liquidator, just finding it frustrating i can't get it right everytime.

These are the types of water marks being left behind in middle of squeegee, not sure if they would dry ok or not, 18" channel. Ignore the soap at the top as i only did a pass through the middle. I held the handle loosely and hardly pressed, if i press harder i don't get water marks. 0871123e196bb254a3354b7923694dce.jpgdbcb590ecb3ec58cce70a948458414ed.jpg

I do get this problem too, more so when I had the moerman rubber in, I tried to use as little pressure as feasibly Poss but got those streaks. Doesn't happen as much now I'm using rzr rubber because it's harder so I apply a bit more pressure. Still get the lines off the ends though and I just can't work out why!

Yes understand that but you don't know unless you try?

It is easy to put back to the original setting.

Hi @H MAN. Does adjusting the clips really make it easier to use or is it a case of personal preference? It's weird how some use it effortlessly without doing this and some have to in order for it to work. I feel the same as keefo, am worried about messing with them!

The clip ends seem a wee bit extreem to some but I'm guessing that what has been proven to work best on all type of seals to eliminate detailing glass.

 

It's still ironic though it can cause some to have other detailing issues on the glass.

I just don't understand how it can be so marmite for people

How can some of us have no issues and other experienced guys have nothing but aggro with it

Maybe because it don't suite every ones style of working?

To be honest it defo more technically challenging to use and slows me down.

It don't really bother me. I might take it out Tomorow & bend the clips up as H man shows in his vid but if it works it works if not then so be it. As I said before my modded unger works just as good if not better & quicker.

What's the largest video file you can load up on here, i'm trying to upload one which is 210mb and it's saying too large. I've also just done it as two shorter videos to break my two techniques up, they are 58mb and 78 and still saying too large. How did you do your 17 minute long video Daveyboy, I'm trying to do it from the upload file button. Cheers

 

 

Had to load to you tube to then copy link
