    I'm about to order the Gardiner one as I came up against some unbeatable bird **** the other week, I think it sits opposite the brush and has an abrasive pad and scraper in one.

    I turn the pole round so the back of the brush can be used to 'scrape' it off, though you need to be careful you don't scratch the window, but it does work. I use this as a last resort though, not really ideal!

    If you're using the brush head, couldn't you stick on a mild abrasive pad direct? Might be less chance of a scratch
