    sounds good mate. Is there anything you would add to your ecover/soap to get rid of sticky **** bound to be on windows? Was thinking some vinegar maybe?

    No not really, I don't use ecover though, original fairy all the way fro me if I'm doing trad work. Soap it up scrape it off then clean as normal.

    Was thinking orig. fairy might be a bit better than ecover I usually use for cleaning these windows as they have not been cleaned a year or two

    I thought I would throw this onto trad section to generate some discussion instead of looking at old posts, been quiet on here recently
