    Will be ordering my new slx-25 next week, and wanted to get a sill brush with it.

    At moment I use Gardiners dual trim medium mixed bristle brush...and it's perfect for me. Medium on outside, stiff bristles in the centre.

    BUT...they don't do the same in a sill brush (I've emailed alex to ask if he has any plans to make these).

    So- I can get a dual trim medium- but I think this might be a tad too soft without the stiffer inner bristles.

    Or I can get a single trim stiff- but don't really want a single trim!

    Anyone used these brushes and can advise me on how they perform?

    Just wish they did a mixed bristle sill brush!

    I use a Vikan sill brush. Like it a lot. Does the job well. I can also clean the van and car without scratching paintwork! :)

    agree with blue monkey, the red flat trim sill brush is all you need for any job- i do a good few leaded windows & its fine with them- and it flies through first cleans - i read about people changing brushes for different jobs but never a reason for it really
