    Just got myself a new applicator sleeve, and used it today.

    Got the Unger Microfibre, holds ALOT of water though, so less dipping in the bucket, A bit better scrubbing power me thinks.

    What does everyone think?

    Ive got the Unger Monsoon, can't tell any differance between that, and the normal white sleeve.


    Last thing, I noticed on the website, (I got mine from a local window cleaning shop) they can go through 500 washers before get a new one but after 3 washers it looses its "flufyness" if you know what I mean??

    I bought a new one over Xmas.

    Wow! Cleans so much better. The sleeve I had before was about 7 years old lol.

    It's just not something I every thought needed replacing. It looked clean. No rips etc. Boy was I wrong! But this one will last 10 years. I do next to no trad now. And it's staying like that lol.

    Not 3 times in one day!

    I mean after 3 washers, I wash them like once a week, they seem to loose the fufyness and are not the same after that..
