Distilled water

I live in an area with hard water. I was wondering if distilled or purified water would be a much better component to my cleaning solution. I’m assuming that it’s mineral or too much soap that is sometimes left behind on glass, especially in the corners and along the glass and frame hence the need for detailing:eek:

Sounds expensive.

Im pretty sure it would produce superior results…until you put your mop in the bucket then you might as well be using regular old tap water.

From what I understand, to much soap can cause you to spend extra time detailing, so maybe start there.

I use GG4 because it’s formulated for hard water areas. <a href=“http://shopwindowcleaner.com/titan-glass-gleam-4-1-gallon.html?a_aid=mistersqueegee&a_bid=351e2739” target=“_top”><img src=“http://www.shopwindowcleaner.com/affiliate/accounts/default1/banners/titan gg4 gallon.jpg” alt=“” title=“” /></a><img style=“border:0” src=“http://www.shopwindowcleaner.com/affiliate/scripts/imp.php?a_aid=mistersqueegee&a_bid=351e2739” width=“1” height=“1” alt=“” /> As has been said too much soap can also create it’s own issues. That’s why I use a floater bottle to correctly measure my soap for my solution - <a href=“http://shopwindowcleaner.com/16oz-float-bottle.html?a_aid=mistersqueegee&a_bid=88582b26” target=“_top”><img src=“http://www.shopwindowcleaner.com/affiliate/accounts/default1/banners/titan gg4 float bottle.jpg” alt=“” title=“” /></a><img style=“border:0” src=“http://www.shopwindowcleaner.com/affiliate/scripts/imp.php?a_aid=mistersqueegee&a_bid=88582b26” width=“1” height=“1” alt=“” />

Purified or distilled water would not have the mineral content of tap water after dipping your mop in it though.

True dat, but I doubt there would be any visible effect when using pure water in a solution versus tap water, no matter the mineral content difference.

Minerals don’t get left behind with proper squeegeeing and detailing.

Thanks G.


Thought I was channelling Stuart Scott, not ODB.

At least I didn’t go “word up,” eh Jay?

The crazy eye didn’t come across with the written words.

I live in oregon… give me two months and I’ll send you as much rain water as you can handle ( I use it myself and love it)… you just gotta pay shipping… lol I do KNOW water quality makes a difference makes a difference… i’d tell you to get a filter … but I dont think it’s gonna be cost effective…

Learn how to trim the rubber and use the squeegee, and you won’t have “detailing issues” I don’t have that “line along the edge” problem

Mr bumblebee, do you ever detail?

What step-by-step instructions would you instruct PenSword35 to utilize in learning to trim rubber?

Cut the rubber at an angle from the tip back to the channel, somewhat like a 45 degree miter cut, and get a sharper corner on the ends of the rubber to get into the seal edge better.

I scrub the track and frames, then mop the window. i then wipe down the frames and edges, squeegee the window, and remove the water from the bottom. I detail before I squeegee.

I subscribe to the school of thought that the mops and brushes and towels clean the window and the squeegee dries it.

I can demonstrate in New Orleans if you wish

I use the sueeze bottles so I never use the same water twice, in other words, I never double dip!!!
