I'd like users views of the following kit:
Unger 'Bottle on a Belt' system - useful tool or fiddly gadget?
GG4 or GG3 Glass cleaner - what's the difference and are they really better than 'Fairy' liquid?!
Winspray Jumbo pouch - big enough or too big?

All thoughts greatly received before I shell out my hard-earned cash.

Dont know about bottle on a belt but after using FL and GG4 i find GG4 much better to use. Its almost just like wiping off rain water and u dont get thick soap studs all over the sills, so i dont really wipe the sills any more just a quick wipe with the t/bar/sleeve.

check archives there is so much about gg3 and 4. personaly ditch the fairy go for one of the gg range depending on the water quality.

You can get the same advantage of Unger's Bottle on a Belt by using a sports bottle filled with your normal solution to wet your washer, keeping it in your pouch.  I don't like the idea of a trailing hose from bottle to washer, although up high this would act as security in case of dropping it.

Ken i too would ditch the fairy and recommend gg3/4 although it takes a bit of getting used to there are many advantages,not least mopping up. i know it seems expensive especially if you`re just experimenting but wintecs do samples for a pound including delivery.
