I usually only carry 2 gallons of water, and change my water at dinner time, and for 2 gallons I put in 2 cap fulls, but the cartons I buy my soap in are big, as are there caps, so probably about 1/8 of a medium sized mug.


The thing with putting in too much soap, is the more dissolved solids(soap) you put in your water, the more of a mark you are going to get around the edges if you don't get it all of with your cloth. Which will happen, so I tend to try keep my amount of soap to a minimum to counter this.


Also if you are working in warm weather, you can put in a little extra to stop is evaporating so quickly, but the side effect is you are to have to spend more time ensuring that you wipe the edges properly.

I don't wipe the edges first, I do that last. But what I meant was you are never going to dry up every speck of water when you run the edges, and if you put in too much soap, you can get as milky line around the window.

if you are not completely drying round the edges after you have sqeeggeed your window then there is a good chance your clothes are to wet


we only use dry cloths to ensure the edging is cleaned to the best possible standard.


However if the window frame is square, like many sash windows, and being that my fingers are round as many are, you can never get the cloth right into the edge all the time and at times you will not remove every single drop of water from the edge, dry cloth or not.


Its not that complicated a statement, splitting hairs about it is not very helpful for the original posted topic.


My comment was only that you can improve that standard of clean, by not using too much soap as it can leave a milk mark around the edges when it dries.

you have taken it all wrong there is no point in getting so defencive im only suggesting a possible way of improving your technique, fingers may be round but clothes can easily be pushed into the corner of a 90 degree angle to improve detailing, i don't see why this isn't relevent to the progression this post has taken sometimes it helps to be open to new ideas :)
