    This has been bugging me for ages. Does anyone know why when you rinse some windows the water comes of in sheets and why on some it collects into drops.

    I much prefer it when it comes of in sheets. Is it anything to do with the quality of the glass or a certain finish.

    Please enlighten me

    I've always used pencil jets, but going to order some fans now. The new Gardiner brushes have 2 sets of holes which is handy
