Looking to buy a nice set of brushes: suggestions?

I want to buy a nice set of round brushes to use with shampoo for cleaning those hard to reach areas.
I have in mind areas such as all crevices, wheels, ( I have wheel brushes but something to get into little corners), Badges/decals, door shuts etc.front grills.

I do have a mish mash of cheap brushes, getting past their best so would like to replace them with a nice set (3 or 4) of round natural bristle type brushes that are safe on paint.
Which are you guys using?

Detail Factory brushes for me.

Not cheap, but super, super soft.

Just get detail factory brushes. The original and best designed brushes that everyone else has copied. Both the soft bristle and the boars hair are THE best you can buy.

Envy Detailing Brush 5pc Set - £7.

https://www.envycarcare.co.uk/shop/i...-valeting-set/

Folks used to rave about these a few years ago and they were quite tough to get hold of due to popularity.

I have a detail brush problem. I own maybe 20-30?

The detail factories are nice and super soft but lack scrubbing power.

Valet pro brushes are best value. Boars hair ones got good good agitation and seem safe on my matte black wheels.

The best quality brush I’ve bought, price not being issue are the work stuff brushes. You can buy them with several different bristles for different stiffness’

I bought a 40mm (it’s huge!) for wheels and will probably buy a couple more sizes.

Work stuff:

Detail Factory does boar's hair brushes too, these do have the needed kick for exterior areas. All I use these days really.
But I highly rate Work Stuff's stuff too.

Nothing wrong with envy detailing brushes, no silly price tag or marketing hype and perfectly safe on paintwork

I've been eyeing up the ValetPro feather tip ones, they look good value for what they are.
