I know it may seem a bit early to be talking about winter, but I’m hoping to be more prepared this year, rather than get caught out like last year. Does anyone have any suggestions for what gloves work well with window cleaning. I was looking at those sealskinz gloves, has anyone used them?
I’m not crazy about Sealskinz. For down to mid-upper 20’s I’ll use Unger or another thin smooth neoprene glove. Below that, I like Glacier Gloves with a lining. They’re a bit thick, but keep you going.
I like Aleutian Gloves when it’s kinda cold. I tried the Unger Gloves which are very similar and they did not hold up as well as the Aleutian gloves. You can pick up a dime with these gloves on. When it gets really cold, below 20 I switch over to Glacier Gloves because they are warmer but the dexterity isn’t as good.
Don’t forget to buy a tube of Aquaseal when you order your gloves. Window cleaning tears them up pretty quick and the Aquaseal patches them up.
Our people including myself like to use Youngstown Glove Winter Series. I like to pick up a liner to use with them. They keep your hands warm with out sacrificing the dexterity you need when wheeling a squeegee in the cold months.
No it had a small bucket like handle at the top, I would have a 24-30oz squirt bottle(not a spray) on my belt. I’d set it down just like you would a bucket, then either refill my squirt bottle or poke a hole in the gallon top with a screwdriver and have a giant squirt bottle.
If you give the scrubber a couple good taps on the end(like a hammer) that straightens out the fibers, squirt it with clean solution and your good to go. I never really use my BoaB to hold solution. I’d have a smaller squirt bottle on my belt. I’ll post a pic of what I’m using now(residential only).
