I recentley did a house with cutups. The interior
was pre oiled with lemon oil on the wood and the glass was covered with
oil. I used a mix of 50/50 di water and alcohol in a spray bottle it
worked pretty good, wiping with hucks, at times I used a putty knife under
the hucks in the corners. The exterior I used GG4 w/ strip washer and

cleaning methods for cut-ups

I'd like to hear the methods you use for cleaning cut-ups. First,
I'll share mine.
1) Apply soapwater solution using a 5 inch strip washer.
2) Using a huck towel, dry both the edge the squeegee will start
from, and the top edge.
3) Using a huck towel, dry the squeegee blade.
4) Squeegee accross from left to right, or right to left, angling
the squeegee so that the the runoff water runs off the "bottom" edge
of the squeegee.
5) Repeat steps 3 and 4 until pane is dry.
6) Detail edges with huck towel.
I believe this is a pretty standard method. However, I've seen
some of you mention using DI water, and still others mention using
"foam". I'm curious how DI water and/or foam changes the procedure. Do
these or other methods shorten the production time vs. my
I do have a WFP, and I do use it on exterior cut-ups. However, I
just put in a bid on a bank today that has a ton of interior cut-ups,
and I'm seeking to cut production time if possible.
