    I am sure it has been discussed before but I failed to find it.... How do you get to clean that part of your van over the windscreen?
    I have tried many methods, usually involving a balancing act on steps or hanging over the roof (very dangerous), leaning a ladder resting on a pile of dusters at the front... the ladder at a precarious angle and the van risking permanent damage. I do not have space to employ a bridge type of ladder, so how do you manage?

    I save old pillows for this very job. Tie onto ladder and rest against moho carefully. Do a bit move, do a bit more and move until all done :)

    Extending brush always leaves some missed areas on mine. Not noticeable though until next time I get the ladder and pillows out !

    Extendible brush here too. Plenty of water to soften those bugs etc, then brush with soapy water.

    Extenda pole with a brush that you can tilt 45degrees

    Initially a combination of long handled brush and precarious leaning then a Big Red Foot ladder (which you may not have space for).

    Solved finally by buying a low profile van.

    I've also used a brush but find a micro fibre head better, you don't need to connect it to a hose either as it holds plenty of water after dunking it in a bucket.

    Something like this
