What do you use to protect your Ladders?
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 21 September 2003I have just replaced some ladders earlier this year and before the winter sets in i would like to protect them a bit. What do you guys use I have used cuprinol in the past but i might try Linseed oil this time
Posted by Majestic (Majestic), 21 September 2003Do your ladders not get heavy when wet Have you not thought about getting aluminiam
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 21 September 2003I suppose they are a bit heavier but a bit warmer in the winter Perhaps i am getting softer in my old age
Posted by Majestic (Majestic), 21 September 2003Have you tried window cleaner gloves for the winter
I have a pair just like new only wore them once , they make your fingers feel clumsy 2 left hands (if you are right handed )
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 21 September 2003I have got a pair but like you have only used them a few times as i cant seem to get used to them
Posted by AMG (AMG), 23 September 2003stupid question guys, but I'm new..
I'm assuming that you draw water from the outside taps of each house? What if there is no outside tap?

I carry my own ,I have a 25ltr container and just fill my bucket up as and when,I got my container from my local garage ,they have a car wash and it was what the car cleaning fluid came in. I asked what they did with the old ones and he said that he threw them away ,so he now saves them for me and I buy him pint . You can also buy them from www.cleantech.co.uk, or even use the large milk containers

I've got a couple of 25 litre containers too. I got them from the canteen at my old job. They were for the dishwaser liquid. I bet if you go round some cafes or hotels they would have some, and as they throw them away I'm sure they would be happy to let you have them.
