Getting Barbecue grease off of glass?

Posted by recs (recs), 10 October 2003
as a relative new boy has anyone got some good advice for removing grime from greasy windows.
I have a number of punters who have had their bbq's set up near windows and greasy deposits have formed on their windows. I have used a scourer sponge but it doesnot do a great job and still leaves lots of smears , etc. I am currently using Ungers cleaning solution and I am impressed compared to the old Fairy. Can anyone help please ??

a good question that

i wouldnt mind knowing aswell  Smiley

just been out collecting and some1 just asked me why 2 windows are still dirty (down and up-stairs under the BBQ) i explained i spent 5 mins on each window and i had no joy because of the grease

they understood Smiley

then i called on some1 else, who said 11 every other month was too much for her 4 bed house with conserv (dont do 3 windows at rear because cannot get to them), so she canceled me Sad, been a bad night really Sad

BBQ near glass very bad I have had a few like this, this year and they ended up burning the hell out of their glass looked like brown blobs on glass when I get them off noticed they were little chips. A big NO
I am a great lover off ammonia will break down grease with no problems theirs also bleach, Sugar soaps.
But I always hit with ammonia up to you though.
Been trying GG4 for a couple of weeks thats quite good but not sure what it is like on its own with grease.

I think that you're better off without. I've said on here before that some people in the larger houses do not want to pay the going rate. I bet you could do 3 small houses at seven quid each in the same amount of time.
I have some small detached bungalows that take 15 minutes for which I get 7 pounds each for. I also have detached four beds that take nearly an hour and I receive 10. Which would you drop first? Exactly! Undecided

To remove BBQ grease use oven cleaner.
Spray on, wet down then squeegee off.
It works like a dream!
