Unger do a fix-it clamp that allows me to clamp a cloth to the end of the pole.

 

The lo-tech option is wrap a damp microfibre scrim around the end of your pole and fix it with an elastic band or some such.

Very difficultly is the answer

Leaded trad is easy but my way involves a lot of buffing the water off with a microfibre

I reckon it will be hard on the end of a pole

Those ones i used to use ladders and now will wfp them

This is how i do lead but i use a fliq pad now not a wagtail handle

I've found blading first works great on modern pvc but many leaded windows in my area are old and was constantly nicking my rubber.

 

Wet wash and dry off with scrim is definitely the best method but not easy with a pole!

Ps. Totally agree with @daveyboy - WFP is the way to go on leaded windows. Most thorough clean and best finish.
