Magnetic brush for washing windows - which one to choose?

This device is designed for quick and easy window cleaning. Magnetic brush cleans the glass from the outer and inner sides at the same time, thereby significantly saves the time the housewife and, importantly, does not expose her to the risk of falling.

How does the window brush work?

The brush itself is made of durable plastic and is a construction of two halves that wash the windows at once from two sides. In the case of each of them is a magnet. Thanks to him, the part held in his hands holds the brush outside the window. For greater safety, the outer brush is equipped with a rope with a ring. It can be fixed to avoid accidental fall.

The inner sides of the brushes, which clean the glass surface, are laid with foam rubber or felt inserts (there are several interchangeable ones included). These materials allow you to clean all the dirt from windows. Along the edges of the brushes are rubber bands. They clean off the remnants of moisture from the glass, without leaving a streak.

Doubtless plus of magnetic brushes for washing windows - it’s not necessary to use different wipers when working with them. Thanks to the material from which the working surface of the brushes is made, as well as to the rubber parts, windows can be washed with ordinary warm water.

Wash the window sill and profile before cleaning the windows. Then take the brushes and divide them by turning one by 90 °. In this case, the effect of the magnet weakens, and the halves easily move away from each other. Moisten the working surfaces with water (or spray window cleaner on them) and place the brushes exactly opposite each other on the inside and outside of the glass, having previously fixed the ring with a rope on the wrist or the window handle. Run the brush that you have in your hands, across the entire surface. The second will completely repeat the trajectory of the first, cleaning the glass from the street.

To understand whether you need such a device at home, you need to know all its strengths and weaknesses.
