    Hey, was cleaning some windows today (first clean) and the window seals got black smears on the windows, I know this is oxidation or something and not much I can do about it but what's the best thing to clean it off? Anyone have any tips? The PVC already had quite a lot on and would be nice to get the windows white again for the customer!? Thanks

    on the white I'm quite taken with the magic sponges, don't like to use them too much but once is ok.

    you wont get rid of the black **** that comes off the black seals, not very often happens but just use a different small scrim to detail, you will get marks on scrim but not your main scrim,, just fit an xtra pouch on the back for xtra cloth., every customer is 1 less for the competition to get seen on the block.
