    Forgot to take a picture but keep coming across connie Windows and sills next to fences covered in spots of creosote from where the fences have been sprayed. Any advice on an easy way to remove this?
    Cheers

    Yeah..tell the neighbour to come round and scrape it off lol
    Scraping off the windows is easy..just soap up a pane and scrape the whole lot in 1 direction..soap up again and squeegee off
    The frames and sills your best bet is magic sponge and water
    You can magic sponge the glass but if a lot of spots it is quicker to use a blade

    Should be water based paint, so easily to razor off or even wash off.

    be careful with scrapers or razors!!!. only use if really necessary.from my experience you will be the first to blame if scratches appear(ie low sun)-even if its not your fault

    Clean as usual and leave the fence paint as it is. That's what we do. If they want it removed they pay extra for it and also don't touch it until they sign a damage waiver.
    If they get upset, then dump and move on.

    Yes didn't touch it as thought blading it would leave me open to blame and it's bloody everywhere. Tried using magic sponge and ubik/water but didn't touch it. Like the damage waiver idea to cover myself.
    When I pointed it out to custy she said oh never noticed it before. Are you blind??
    Thought white spirit might damage upvc?

    I use a scraper anytime i need to get **** off the glass
    If you use it properly you can't scratch the glass
