Egg on glass......HELP


Recommended Posts

Hi every one. I was approached this morning and asked if i was taking on new customers. Looking at her windows i discovered 2 windows covered in egg and shell. No access with ladders available.....i use the pole system with cold water, any tips on how to remove the egg etc...also how much extra £££??

Cold water will struggle to remove it , can you put a scraper on a pole and scrape it to remove the worst  of it , then apply washing up liquid, or virisol by spray or on the brush give it a good scrub and repeat until clean , I would suggest charging well as if it has been on there a while it will be time consuming .

As above, or Screwfix No-Nonsense degreaser also works well.  But as said, if you can scrape off as much as possible first it will be a great help.

I have found screwfix no nonsense degreaser to be the best for removing egg. I remember one of custys had been egged on halloween, we showed up maybe 3 weeks or 4 weeks after so it had been on there a while. Good old nO nonsense degreaser on there and the egg just disintegrated in no time, happy days 🙂

Biological washing powder works best as the enzymes in it break down the proteins in the egg which is what makes it stick so well.

Mix some into a paste and leave it on there a few minutes. 

Works a lot better than degreaser etc.

Missed something out there mate, you also need @Part Timer to apply it by hand to high level windows when you don't have a ladder. 😃

I used this on a extra dirty cladding clean a few years ago worked really well, used customers tap it did leave some residue on the concrete floor but again the customers tap sorted.

It also kills moss off pathways in days and it all dies and can be swept off.
