    Most of you guys are doing a lot more trad work that me these days, :p but I got to wondering in a moment of boredom what applicator sleeve do you favour and is there any particular reason for your choice?
    When I started out many years ago I got my kit from a local janitorial wholesaler, that ment the bog basic Pulex brass sqeegy and the standard white Pulex applicator sleeves. When Unger came out with their green microfibre sleeves I moved over to them and found them much better at cleaning. :) On the regularly given advice of Carl Robinson AKA Karlos Daze I also got an Ettore Porcupine, I still haven't really made my mind up about that one.

    So your turn now, what have you tried and what do you like?

    Unger microfiber. With the scrubber on the side. 12 inch. Green & white. As mark said to be honest they all do the same to me. I find it's the actual squeegee that cleans the window.

    I find the pulex sleeve holds a lot more water than the rest. I personally prefer to use ungers green/white sleeve though.
