    hi all had an angry customer saying our brush heads have scratched all his window sills and frames. not got a clue how to respond to him, any advice from any1?? use a 12 inch rectangular Viking brush head and think the ash cloud we had a few month back may have blew dust, stones etc onto whites then when we cleaned the sill its scratched.

    hmm not an expert as I tend to wfp first and clean the sills afterwards but...

    magic sponges are the answer ....and should leave custy happy again..:D

    just say okay will get them off and then make sure it doesnt happen again...

    its all a learning curve...good luck..

    oh for the magic sponges try tuffers on line...a great store...

    dont forget it was frank that said that gaz...:rofl:

    he does have some funny ways that frank

    once he came across a very mucky window sill and didnt want to dirty his sill cloth and nearby was a paint roller in water so he used that....

    it was a nice pretty pattern that paint on the brickwork....bloody frank
