    Cleaned my first house this morning with pretty dirty old upvc and when I was scrimping round the edge then micro I kept smearing the dirt or colour off the rubber window trim on the white upvc, right pain to get off too!
    Anyone got any tips for this problem, my rags was covered in the black stuff!

    This is a common problem, the windows on my house do it every time, just try and be careful to wash it off quickly so as not to let it dry on.

    scrub seals with ubik 2000 then rinse well if wfp method or if trad use an old apllicator then plenty of water to rinse off which will stop rubber bleed. :Image9:

    [SIZE=10.5pt]No problem....just spray some on your brush and give the frames & seals a good scrub then rinse well with pure.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=10.5pt]May take more than one attempt to stop it completely so may need to do it again. [/SIZE]

    Hi smurf cheers for that, had a look on they're site but can't find the ubik listed, they're only about 5-10 mins away from me anyway so might bob down there!
    Does this stuff clean white upvc too and can it damage the windows if left too long etc?
