    Already put a post in on this subject, but thought I would start a new thread.

    Egg on glass for us wfp guys...

    I live a few miles away from Student city (Headingley), and every year trying to get egg of glass from the 1,2,3 floors can be a nightmare. Is this where wfp heated system comes in? It takes me ages trying to get it off using the wfp. I charge for it like, but still.

    Ground floor, yes, ( I have some " A Frames"), but don't use ladders as I only clean using wfp methods.

    I was away doing a student house window clean just before Xmas... No eggs, but the windows where really really bad, covered in thick dirt.. My full boars hair came to the rescue and made mince meat out of it.. It would took twice as long with my standard brush..

    I also done the inside, so I was able to see again how well the boars hair brush works

    Nice one... WIll have to try one. Do they drag over the glass or do they glide over the glass? It it a fast brush in otherwords?

    I use to use a RHG hogs hair brush for a couple years. Hogs hair brushes scrub very well but they drag, so it's more work for you. I use a DT monofilament brush now because they glide over the glass and it's way easier on the old body.
