    To those who clean a lot of facia/soffits, whats the best cleaner to use that won't stain glass if it dries on it? I've tried UBIK2000 which definately stains, and a couple of other brands, same story. I've never tried Virosol but according to it's MSDS it has a pH of over 11, which suggests to me that it would also stain glass if left to dry on it. Ideally I reckon a neutral pH cleaner would do the trick, but is there a suitable one out there?
    Thanks.

    Most dish soaps are ph neutral too hence why trad cleaners use it on glass.

    Yes the customer had an outside tap tuffers but I had to work from next door to do half of it so was just as easy to use pure on all of the roof & sides to save messing about.;)
