    Check this out; http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=254503500

    I usually work on the principle that if it doesnt come off with a hard wipe from the soapy microfibre, then it stays unless they pay for UPVC restoration. But I am planning to go the extra mile and restore some of the downstairs sills on my round, I bought a bottle today. I tried it out on my sills and they have come up really nice, with not a lot of work, but he main thing that attracts me....30 ****in' p!

    It seems a little milder then Cif, but haven't used it enough to see which is best yet. Can't be a bad thing though, since it still gets the job done, but probably not as bad for your clothes or hands. It doesn't seem to stick to everything the way Cif does, so it wipes off nice and easy. :thumbsup:

    Thats what I bought it for mate, and yes it does.:thumbsup: It leaves the plastic very shiney and white if you wipe it with a dry cloth. I can't wait to use it on my round.

    I'm pre mixing a spray bottle of Ubik as per daveyboys suggestion too since I have loads of the stuff and hardly ever use it, apparently this is good for the grey too.

    seems a little expensive for me. (i'm really tight).

    Joking aside that sounds really good. I might even let you clean my frames. Just down the road from you.

    Yeh that near Ely. I've been offered work in cambridge, but to be honest it's a nightmare travelling in the city, so I tend to turn it down. I go as far as Milton.
