Not really a 'tool' but it's definitely a must addition for everyone who uses silicone, foam filler, wood treatments, stains, etc.

I just finished siliconing a bath panel I made and used them for the first time, was told about them by one of the other plumbers.

Absolutely incredible the difference having them, small spills, nozzle stutters, splutters etc, easily wiped up and away. I usually finger wipe the silicone (not my fav. job) and hate the stuff, even with half a roll of bog paper it still gets every where. Not any more.

I recommend it's the best £5.99 (for 80 GIANT BABY WIPES) you'll ever spend.

I thought they were expensive, but I'll be adding them to my consumables list in the van and will always have them in stock.

Best I could find Hellfords £5.99 unless you know better?

I hate VAT myself, fortunately my business partner used to do all the bookwork, and Mrs scruff was a tax inspector anyway so I could wash my hands of it :thumbright:

We use ones called "GRIMEX" at work. They are supplied as hand cleansers but will clean just about any any non porus surface extremely well.
