    2) What do you guys use to clean brush after a particulary dirty window job during the day

    Im no expert but when its turned on, I put my hand over the brush so the pure water is getting sprayed back in to the brush. I then rub and move all the bristles making sure to try nock any debris or webs out.

    I works for me, however I dont use WFP all day every day so may now work for you.

    What about taking it in the house washing it was luke warm water then rinsing it with pure water?

    I've been using the same brushes for the last four years and haven't cleaned them yet! It's just not necessary.

    Hmmm, so you get no cobwebs, spider nests or any other dirt/debris from frames and glass trapped in bristles of your brushes at all?

    Just wondering what brushes are you using then that can clean themselves? :rolleyes:

    Depends sometimes just wash it under tap,
    soak it,
    let it dry out and brush hand over it few times
    Other guy I talked uses fine dog comb to get bits out

    During the day, usually when I'm putting pole back in van I would blast it with the hose up at 99.. Of if I seen spider webs stuck all over..

    I brought my brushes in last night to dry and I'm going to Hoover them this morning
