    Windowsurfer, I have done quite a few of these and always use the black flocked Gardiners brush with no problems. but i suggest you "test" a bit and don't use loads of pressure on the brush head. If you have stubborn green to shift, pre soak (wet and leave it for 10 mins or so), if possible use warm/hot water.
