    Need to get vertical black drip lines off paintwork. Finding it almost impossible to get them off at the moment. Any help appreciated on recommending a heavy duty product.

    Can anyone be more specific? I have problems not just with some black marks on frames but also water marks on the glass. I am hoping the same product would sort both.

    That 550 looks favourite ....?

    you can bleach them however why not get a UPVC cleaner from amazon - costs 4 quid and does the job like a pro : P
