We suggest another cloth is used to wipe the sill.
How to use the unger Micro Microfiber Sleeve: With the Sleeve fitted to a T Bar. Make up a solution of detergent. Unger SYR and Ettore all make good detergents for cleaning windows - See the Category 'Detergents For Windows.' An Oblong Bucket makes wetting the applicator easier - See Category 'Buckets'. Wet the sleeve by immersing it in detergent. Remove the excess detergent (many do this by running their hand along the applicator). The applicator should not be dripping. Rub the sleeve all over the window to cover the glass. Use the pad on the end of the sleeve to remove any stubborn marks or bird droppings. Rub the sleeve against the window - up and down, from side to side, in a circular motion covering the window in suds. When all the dirt is loose, use a squeegee to remove the detergent. Repeat if necessary. Finish by using a Scrim to remove any excess detergent from the glass.
How do I choose the right Unger Micro Microfiber Sleeve? There are a couple of things to think about. First the size you need - the most popular size is 35cm 14". This is suitable for most windows. As a general rule, the larger the window, the larger the applicator. Georgian style windows may use smaller applicators while patio doors, offices and shops require bigger applicators. It saves time to get the right size applicator for the right size of window. Secondly is the sleeve type. There are a number of different makes and types of sleeve. Microfiber sleeves generally hold more water. Many sleeves including the Unger Micro Microfiber Sleeve have Velcro fastening which can make fitting a sleeve over a T Bar quicker. A nice design feature is the abrasive pad at the end of the sleeve, this can be used to remove stubborn dirt and bird mess.
What is a 'washer'? A washer is another name for an applicator. An applicator is a sleeve and a T Bar together.
Tips: Keep it clean. Wash the Sleeve to remove the build up of soap and dirt. Wash at a low temperature with only a small amount of detergent and no conditioner. Unger say that this Sleeve may be washed up to 500 times. Air dry, do not tumble dry.
