    Basically a customer wants me to get all the stained tiger stripes off the sash windows next time I'm there, which chemical is best that won't take the paint off?

    If it won't come off with a scrub and some soap, then really its time to sand and paint again.

    Magic sponge and virosol will shift it off painted surfaces. I uploaded some before and after pics on here a while back.

    Wouldn't bother with chemicals.

    Magic eraser will fetch them straight off.
