    If you talking about sill brush with red inner bristles. This brush is designed to be used with hot water im sure. But I do use it for cleaning pvc gutters. I ended up using it for washing painted surfaces, after buying the gardiners cladding brush, the sill brush seemed to do a better job on that particular job.

    I'd be careful with really stiff bristles as there for hot water use and maybe ok on non delicate surfaces, you may find they could scratch window frames/glass if used cold.

    I'd of gone for the medium mixed one, I bought there flocked sill brush last night for a new gutter/fascia brush.

    i have the standard medium mixed sill brush, best brush ive used, great on first cleans, conny roofs, guttters and facias.
    cant see any reason to use anything else.

    The only other brush i have is a vikan as a backup, cant see the point buying loads of brushes, when this one wears out ill buy another
