    I use them, they are fantastic. Cover more with the brush span as they flex outwards.

    Yes. The extreme medium sill brush. It's very good, would recommend them highly

    I have to admit I've never given them much thought or a chance. Sounds like I was wrong not to though. Do you use them on the glass too? Or do you switch for every window? Switching seems a bit much...

    Nope no need for switching, some recommend the softer sill brush from Gardiner for leaded glass but I use medium sill brush for everything, it's brilliant.

    Cleaning the window sill is easy and should be very quick to do; as long as the brush stock is narrow in width then even a brush with a small splay will be able to clean the sill’s fast.

    Window cleaning brushes work by using the length of the filament, so as long as you can get the bristles onto the entire sill without the brush stock touching, just slide the brush along the length of the window sill, and that’s it.

    Cleaning the window sill usually needs between 2-4 brush strokes, which can be done in a couple of seconds

    Oh, we've always just used a normal brush at an angle to do sills. When it's time to swap brush heads next I'll probably switch to a sill brush then. Cheers
