    My first Connie with ubik2000
    The connie was 15 year old and all the silicone was yellow I did today
    Had to give it 2 washes with ubik
    And in the end still wasn't happy as to how white I could get it so after spending far to much time on it give it the last clean
    And said to the customer if she was happy she was more than delighted with the work
    But I went away thinking I could get it even cleaner
    Have use had this or is their summat else I could use what could get it whiter...

    Sometimes whites don't come up white. It's just one of them! I find that some soffits won't come up clean, it's like an acid has got to them.

    Sometimes we expect far more than the customer does!

    White upvc, especially old upvc discolours over years especially if in strong sunlight. It tends to 'yellow'

    can you use ubik on tinted glass ( gray glass) conney roofs, iv used it on regular white upvc... but may have my first conny roof to do next week and the tinted glass is making me paranoid, read somewhere not to use it on self cleaning glass. though i dont know how to tell if the glass is so called self cleaning :confused:

    Dragbag self cleaning glass should have a blue tint film and your be able to tell difference when you look at normal glass. I wouldn't use ubik on self cleaning just in case you damage the film

    I use Ubik on 'self cleaning' glass all the time because it doesn't.

    Once you read that sentance a few times you'll get it.

    My arsenal is real simple.

    Ubik.
    Unger Rub Out
    Bar keepers friend
    Lemon Juice

    If you cant get it cleaned with that you're never going to.

    When you go to quote it is simply good practice to get out some gear and do a test patch or two.

    Not only is the client amazed by the test patches but also YOU get to see clearly what will be achievable and how much effort involved so you can price accordingly and allow enough time.
