    I like a new sleeve only because I find it holds more water and drops less on the sill I change them probably about every 4 month
    The old ones I use for crappy jobs and high street where there's traffic film
    I find once there worn they don't hold the water rather drop it all over the sill so need more dips

    What about the porcupine (ettore one blue shades/ungers one has one side green i think) type ones,maybe its just a placebo affect but after a few month of use they seem to remove less on first cleans.

    Read that post about pressure washing them,how simple and effective I'd bet that is too..

    Although I don't use porcupines now, I did for a long time, and found them the best. I would change mine every seven months or so, and give the old ones away to people who had dogs, because they're like dead rabbits to a dog.

    At least Ettore washers start to pee if you wash em in a washing machine if spinning is used. New or old after spinning it start to pee , ok you would say in English drop. Sorry

    I just bought the moreman one. Looking forward to trying it out. I usually use the blue and white pulex one. Holds a lot more water than the unger green/white sleeves.
