Get Rid Of Stubborn Grime With The Unger ErgoTec Ninja Scraper 10 cm
Dust is not the only thing that makes the windows dirty. If it was, things could have been so much simpler- but since when was life like that? There are those situations when gunk that winds up on the glass panes becomes frustrating, defying conventional cleaning techniques like spray cleaning, scrubbing with brushes, and squeegeeing. Gunk that simply refuses to let go. Take for instance residue from adhesive tape, vinyl lettering, or those stickers that need to be removed. If the window has remained without being cleaned for months- or even years- then there will be a heavy build-up of soiling. After decorations are pulled down from the windows- like at home after parties, or in storefronts during product promotions, the bits and pieces left stuck to the window cannot be simply wiped off. Have there been recent construction or renovation works on the premises? Then there will be cases of cement splashes, the occasional silicone deposits, mortar particles, all through to paint overspray that winds up on the glass. These need tougher cleaning measures. However, remember that glass is delicate. You don’t want to go all out with abrasive tools that can scratch or break it. Common household gear, from razor blades to screwdrivers and putty knives can end up doing more harm than good. You want a product that has been specially designed to handle these types of situations. That’s right up the alley of the Unger ErgoTec Ninja Scraper 10 cm.

Working With The Unger ErgoTec Ninja Scraper 10 cm
Using it is a breeze. Follow these steps:
- First wash the window. This removes the loose soiling, leaving the stubborn gunk for the Unger ErgoTec Ninja Scraper 10 cm to handle.
- Wet the window sections where you want to scrape. You should never scrape dry glass.
- Proceed with the scraping. Note that you only scrape forward. Do not drag the blade backwards, as the debris trapped underneath may scratch the glass surface.
After you’re done, restore the protection cap. This is to prevent any injuries from occurring. With the 2-in-1 Unger ErgoTec Ninja Scraper 10 cm, you get to lock it in the holster in seconds with the EasyClip feature securing its handle in place. This prevents it from falling out. Never leave the scraper or its blades unattended in public places, especially where kids can gain access.
Tips For Using Scrapers On Your Windows – Unger ErgoTec Ninja Scraper 10 cm
- Check if the glass in question is scratch resistant and suitable for scraper use. It can be indicated on the instructions that came with the installation. You can always perform a scrape test on an inconspicuous area.
- When scraping, apply even pressure as you hold the blade against the glass surface.
- Change (or reverse) the blade should it become blunt or get chipped. This has the welcome benefit of making each blade serve you for longer.
- Don’t store or carry around the Unger ErgoTec Ninja Scraper 10 cm with the blade exposed. Always ensure the protection cap is on, taking it off only when carrying out the actual scraping.
- Clean the blade after use. Not much is needed here. It can be simply done by swishing it in a bucket of water.
