    so it could be the stock? not heard of this before, strange thing is it is the bottom front windows so dont usually have the angle problems that you have on upstairs ones. I will have to get a sill brush maybe.

    Seen it on mine, but no ones said anything yet! I have bought a sill saver brush head, but it's quite a bit heavier, so haven't used as yet. Put off by the weight.

    I've noticed a few scratches on the sills on an estate I do. I think it could be when I turn the brush to get the bits out at the bottom of the opening window. The marks are black.

    Cheers Dave! They look much lighter. My Dr Squeegee is a monster in comparison.

    Well, ive told her its nowt to do with me, never heard of it and its not possible, to be honest i thought she was making an excuse to get rid of me, shes a slow payer and always looks pained to see me.

    As shaggy once said, it wasnt me
