    I always wet any glass down first if using ubik working above them on guttering & fascia cleans then wash & rinse them down immediately afterwards with pure water so it doesn’t get time to dry on the glass. Like any strong alkaline cleaner it can permanently damaged glass and any alkaline sensitive surfaces if left to dry. The other option is maybe use a ph natural chem as I've mentioned before in another thread which is safe to use on glass. Most dish wash soaps are also ph neutral

    its jc products in cork , its 15 euros plus vat for 5litres , it would be worth trying amazon or ebay because ive seen it on there for 6 and 7 pounds for 5 litres plus postage
