    oh hell, i have the same trouble aswell , work my f ing **** off n still takes 3 hours, i bet u used about 300 cloths aswell didnt u? i think that can be half the trouble aswell, when i didnt have enough clothes i was spending ages trying to dry frames with a wet cloth. i think next first clean i do im gonna spray virosol all over then just wipe dry n hopefully that should be good enough. first couple i did though i was scrubbing them with cif and a scourer but iv since been told i shouldnt be doing that

    All i had available were 2 micro fibres 1 large scrim and 1 of them green unger cloth's . 5 hrs but i did have to keep stopping cus bloody kids and i had dinner aswell so it wasn't a solid 5hr of graft . But still a ball breaker . We have lived here 7 yrs and we have never cleaned the frames etc . But living on a busy main road they were thick of dust .
