    I get to this time of year and I always face one or two regulars with chlorine on windows (Small chalky looking crop circles all over the bottom half of patio doors normally!). I have wipes with a chemical which is used in nail polish remover, which does a reasonable job. Just wondered if any of you recommend any thing else?. I know one thing. A soaking and a blade is not enough!!!!...

    Sounds like tap water stains from when they've been watering the plants and it's dried. Hard water stains are a PITA to get off.

    None of those are classed as professional strength products so will not work as well as something like winsol cc550

    I think it's limescale, difficult to get rid of. I find a lot of it on my round from custies hosing their plants (and also the windows).

    I think its limescale as well. I have one customer who has a massive glass canopy over her door. Above it is a limestone wall that drips water onto the glass canopy which causes massive limescale stains. Part of the job is to clean the canopy. Whenever she is about she will hand me a bottle of sainsburys limescale remover. I must say, it does a fantastic job of getting rid of the staining....every time.
