What do you use that cuts through that toughened dried grease on the glass?
Degreaser and a scraper
Cheers, mate. I'm wondering if there's something that doesn't require the scraper part I have one particular window that's leaded, and takes ages with a scraper. Something I can just spray on, wipe with a floor cloth, then clean as usual...
They're a pain, soapy water and/or a scraper or an acrylic bath scourer, depending how bad it is. If it is very bad, if they have barbies every week, then I don't do them, because it's just a waste of time.
Virosol is a very good degreaser
Citrus based and cuts through it easily
Cheers, Dave! Not tried that stuff before!
Would you use that over Ubik? Still waiting for that to arrive for my upvc cleaning!
Ubik works mate
I think ubik is better on upvc..virosol is the same company and is a professional degreaser but ubik will do the same thing
I use virosol at the moment for 1st cleans wfp as no ubik left but have no problems with grease marks on the glass with either
That's great, Dave, Thanks, Bud. Out of interest, how do you apply Ubik to the top windows?? Spray some on brush??...and do you use it neat??
