    Awesome to use, but absolutely stinks the van out! None of my others brushes smell, but for some reason the boars brush has a horrible stank to it, like an old sweaty damp sock. I've just washed it but I can't be arsed to have to properly wash it every night.

    Ps. Jake I used that green unger sill brush today lol, stiff brushes, but I love it! I find stiff bristles much better than flocked bristles personally, especially on bird poop, I hope they won't damage window seals though!

    They come from a boars ass hole that's why, the dried excrement is meant to aid scrubbing power, :rofl:

    On a serious note mate, that must be a bit rancid! Never used one, but that's put me off!!!

    That's good the beast worked mate, I saw it again the other day in the local suppliers, i thought of you when I saw it!

    Yeah I agree with the bristles, I like my facelift brushes for the same reason, nice and stiff for good scrubbing

    (Stiff - sounds a bit weird :whistle:)

    Haha that's exactly what it smells like! A rancid boars arsehole! :puke: Works really well though, scrubs good and is soft on the windows. Does look like I have just put a garden brush on the end though lol.

    Lol! Yeah I bet it's similar to a garden brush, customers probably think your a right cheap skate!

    Haha beast. I might call it the Hulk from now on ;) For some reason it just works, it shouldn't when compared to a gardiners superlite/extreme soft flocked majiggy, its a big heavy, stiff bristled beast, but I have alot of bird poo round here so its a dream :thumbs:

    Haha I will do. It won't be until next week though as I'm doing other stuff now and won't be back on windows until next wednesday when I have a big house where someone thought it was a good idea to stick leaded strips all over the outsides of the windows! Its going to be a nightmare. Think that will have to be a flocked brush! I'll do a video on a different job though, might have my first conservatory roof clean next week too, should be fun! :D
