Remember moerman is designed to be used directly on the applicator, not in the bucket

The meorman stuff is really good but to expensive, I bought it just for the bottle for internals, ,  as Clistly as mentioned apply directly to applicator, wet your mop then a put a couple of blobs on your applicator so the soap suspends on the window and doesn’t drip perfect for internals I use a small spray bottle with water  spray the windows so nice a damp without dripping mop then blade with a scrim on the sill  minimum drips perfect every time.

Bought 5 bottles of the Moerman and few months ago and still have one left. Been mixing it with fairy and wee bit of rinse aid. The slip on the Moerman is lovely but IMO you need a bit of fairy to cut through more stubborn marks. I do like the Moerman, smell is lovely too but yeah it is very expensive for what it is & not sure if I would use it long term as costs would stack up.

I really like the moerman soap, as said its got a great smell,  I find it has decent slip, would say better than squeegee off, but is expensive, going to buy more though.

I watched a good video regarding Moerman soap and the couple just put some in a bucket. They said it was great and the smell is fantastic. I'm thinking of buying it just for the smell from cleaning spot (8:15p) which seems to be the cheapest around.

The moerman stuff really isn't worth money to be honest. It smells better than most soaps but in terms of glide it's no different from fairy platinum and if anything you will use a bit more of it to get the same results as platinum in my experience

I watched a couple of tradders a while back using it on the 2 jobs opposite my house. They never dipped the applicator in the bucket of water whilst doing 10 plus windows had the applicator on window sills rested against rendered wall's on a trad pole.

Just a whole load of suds it looked to me as I watched them I thought the windows will be dirty again in no time due to the amount of soap residue left on the glass plus it looked to take a lot of longer than straight forward tradding.

It seems to me that everyone reacts to the Smell of Moerman soap. It must have a unique smell to it and I will probably buy it just to smell it. Bizarre :1f633:

Does smell nice and because I virtually only do internals the clients have mentioned how pleasant the smell is.

 

When applying directly to a mop it goes a long way I just mist the window with water using little hand sprayer.

 

the bottle is really handy I wouldn't buy again to expensive will be going back to dish soap when I have run out.

tryed the mormon stuff in the bucket and it worked fine with a standerd mop but as soon as i used the wagtail it was not good the soap would not give good coverge on the glass like when i pull the wagtail down the glass to soap up it would miss bits unless the wagtail was driping wet so not inpressed with it on a wagtail , tomorow is the syr stuff had a quick blast and it seems beta than the mormon stuff but wont no till tomorow 👀
