    As I'm new to window cleaning, I'm a bit confused as to all the different types/styles of WFP brushes available.
    When or why, would you use ...

    Mono filament,...Flocked,....and Boars Hair brushes.

    Pencil jets,...Fan jets.... what's the difference in the cleaning ability of these.

    Do people use a selection of brushes on the same job, or are there specific brushes for a certain type of job.

    Sorry for the Dumbo questions, but the more styles of brushes I see advertised, the more confused I'm getting :unsure: .

    its like why are there so many diffrent types of anything! if they make it someone will buy it.

    i only have 3 types of brushes.

    one for every day use for everything, one for really bad first cleans then solar panel brush. thats it.

    i find the ones i use do a good job so why change.

    OK then, so now that I know a bit more about the different types of brushes.......

    Why would you choose Pencil Jets instead of Fan Jets.......or Fan Jets instead of Pencil Jets.

    I use one brush for all, I'm too lazy to keep changing brushes, Gardiner superlite mono filament does it all.
    I prefer fans to pencils they give more coverage. Just experiment and you will find your favourite combination
