    Hi,

    I normally use Ettore, and the microfiber sleeve is great for holding water and cleaning. I wanted to get a replacement for outdoor work, so a looking for the one that holds the most water.

    Whilst on the subject... I also use Ettore T-Bars, and I am guessing there isn't much difference in the water holding capacity of different makes of T-Bars, assuming of course that we are not including the aluminum ones with no water channels.

    I have seen a few sleeves that are a possibility, has anyone tried all or a number of these and know which holds the most water?

    • Ettore Microfiber
    • Unger Monsoon
    • Pulex Tiger Wash
    • Pulex Microfibre
    • Sorbo Yellow Sleeve
    • SYR Tiger Sleeve
    • Any others?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    I love the Pulex Tiger! I don't ever use my unger monsoon any more this is purely as they have a much better scub on them, could not tell you which holds more water so probably don't help you much lol :Image7:

    It looks like (from online pictures) the Tiger has a couple of different types of fibers in it - does it?

    Some sleeves hold more water than others. For instance, comparing different Ettore ones that I own.

    The Microfiber sleeve holds more water than the Golden Glove, which holds more than the Porcupine sleeve.

    Get a wfp, then you can throw all the water you want at the glass :)

    I use a Monsoon myself too.

    Sorry being lazy aren't I? lol
    There you go mate this says it all, dunked both fully in water then squeezed them so full pulled both out until water stopped running out, then put them both in a glass & carefully squeezed the water out into each glass. The pic answer's the question! Almost double & the scrub on the Tiger is so much better! wins hands down for me
