    This is my first youtube vid and first time I've tried to link a vid so apologies if I've ballsed it up...
    I tried this method today and results were good! A clean six inch applicator to agitate the dirt in the stream of water coming from the brush head and rinse as best you can. Odviously no good on phobic glass but I managed a good curtain of water on these narrow doors and quite quick to do.
    Any thoughts?????

    YEP theres my thoughts....

    why the feck didnt I think of that before my jobs yesterday..

    I will go and get a photo to show...

    I got my brush under the railings but because the top clamp has come loose and the bottom clamp has broke I couldnt get the brush head to turn to get the bloomin brush out...

    I was thinking of applicator soaping up the squares and taking the pure up to rinse off never occured to cheapie to just blast it off with his pole full stop...

    cheapie not thinking again...now looking forward to them barsteward georgians full of spiders next month I ll get the buggers with applicator on a pole first..ta...top post..
    well for me anyway...:D

    Nice idea with the applicator on a pole Luke. I noticed your brush is quite kitted out - do you have 2 pencils, 2 fans or 4 of one kind? Also do you use the gardiner scrubber on the back much? I've found it useless so far, can't do anything a brush can't..

    wow! All I see is £ signs :laugh:
    two pencil two fan. Can't get on with fans for glass but great on fsg, cladding, garage doors....
    the scraper is brilliant, only been defeated by one particular bird shite, must've been eating epoxy resin, came off with a glass scraper but stayed whole like the lid off a pot of pringles!:turd:

    I might try it without the soft white sponge on it. Those things are too soft and just doesn't have enough grit to it for me.

    Does it make it easier to rinse glass with both rather than just pencils? I have a seperate brush for fsg with fans on. I'd wonder though if the water pressure would drop with 4 jets on rather than 2...
