    Has anyone bought or used one of the new Dr squeegee sill saver brushes.

    I've heard the bristles are 1 inch longer and slightly stiffer than the Vikan Hi/Lo monofilament brush.
    What's the word on the street ??

    It seems to make a lot of claims about being the best,looks heavy.Never had any problems cleaning sills with a superlite.

    From the picture it does not really look much different to the vikan.

    Nah apparently it's not that different except longer and a bit stiffer but the reviews on it seem good.

    For £22 it is worth a punt if you need a sill brush.

    looks like a vikan sill brush.

    I prefer my gardiner superlight extreme (165g) and use my FlipFast to get to the sills when i need to.

    I think a flipfast would be a better investment and quicker than changing the brush to clean sills,If the sill is really grubby just squirt some Fairy or Ecover on your brush and work it in.
    The sill brush might be better for conny roof cleans

    When it says sill brush it's not just designed for sills it's also for doing the windows but has a lower set of bristles also on it to do the sills without having to adjust the neck. You'd be there all day if you had a window brush and then used a separate sill brush.

    I wouldn't want to use that for long,if you step back 1/2 metre after cleaning the window you can get the sill.
