    Happened again today and I remember it happening before. When I was doing the detailing with my scrim or frames with sill cloth, this horrible black stuff got on my scrim it spread on the frames as well, will it ruin my scrim? I just put it in for a hot wash. I think it might be off the rubber between the glass and frames, but not 100%.

    I'm sure it's from the the black seals on the upvc around the frame. Do you use the scrim to wipe off water and dirt from your squeegee?

    I get it all the time, only for first couple of cleans though and first clean is worst. It does come off though it's only oxidisation on seals (so I'm told).

    yep its defo from the black seals holding the window in. Once they get oxidized theyll leave the black marks on ur scrim. I find that if windows do it real bad to just miss the edge with my mop, sqeegee as normal then the detailing should be hassle free
