    So I clean windows but it seems my cleaning solution is great for the windows but doesn't quite get rid of all the dirt on the windows. I use a seperate spray for the hard to remove bits on the window. I heard g101 or something being mentioned somewhere here? is that safe to use on these type of windows? Just looked on ebay and saw G850 industrial strength says its okay for cars and things. So was wondering if this would be suitable?

    Asda eco liquid or ecover and flash
    Any little bits left on the glass use your scraper and next time they will be better
    No need for chems on a standard clean

    How about paint spots? Would these types of liquids dissolve them if I leave on the window for a minute? Has anyone tried this? Also if it came to having to scrape a load of paint spots of a window, could I just wet the window real good and run a scraper across the entire thing in one direction? Watched some videos but not entirely confident about it.

    It depends on the extent of the paint spots
    The odd 1 or 2 i will whip off with my scraper but more than that will start taking me extra time

    I wouldn't put chemicals on the glass unless you know it'll be OK. Regarding any kind of 'spot' that is on the glass, use a scraper, with a bit of water.

    I agree but I want to be able to charge a bit more if I can.

    Ubik and virosol are 100% fine on glass
    Ubik is good when i spray the minging frames on a first clean i spray the glass as well
    Scrub glass with old porcupine soaking wet and it takes all the shite off
    Then clean as normal
    Won't take paint off though
