    Davey is WORNG again.

    Forget Ubik, use the same method I use for guttering, it's called the 'Nic' method....... 'Oi Nic! Clean those bloody window frames!'

    Though I have noted since I started working solo again the system don't work so well. :rolleyes:

    Most grey dirty marks on the upvc will come off with just a wipe with ubik sprayed on it and the green stuff just melts off
    The stubborn bits a magic sponge will take right off..just wet the sponge with the ubik and give it a scrub
    Make sure you wash or rinse it off after as it can stain if allowed to dry i have been told..I've only managed to stain stuff with virosol though
