Helpful Tips:

How do I use the Ettore Porcupine SLEEVE? First you fit the Sleeve to a T Bar and make up a solution of detergent.  You will find using an Oblong Bucket makes wetting the applicator easier. You then wet the sleeve by immersing it in detergent. Then you remove the excess detergent. The applicator should not be dripping. Now you can rub the sleeve all over the window to cover the glass. You can use the pad on the end of the sleeve to remove any stubborn marks or bird droppings. You should rub the sleeve up and down and from side to side, and in a circular motion covering the window in suds. When all the dirt is loose, you can use a squeegee to remove the detergent. You may need to repeat if necessary. Clean up the edges with a Scrim - You can now clean windows!

What Size Do I Need:

How do I choose the right size of Ettore Sleeve? 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. If you are cleaning patio doors, offices and shops, you will require bigger applicators such as 18" 45cm. It will save you time and energy to get the right size applicator for your size of window.

Just To Be Sure:

You may have heard the Ettore Porcupine SLEEVE can be called different things, so you might enjoy learning the lingo. A 'washer' is another name for an applicator or sleeve. An applicator is a sleeve and a T Bar. You may find that some call a sleeve a 'soapy'.

Product Care:
