    Two chemicals come to mind Crystal Clear 550 and One Restore.

    These are the last two that is used before having to use a machine.

    But before you go getting some you should know how to use these chemicals.

    Read up on these types of chemicals before using them.

    Has anyone tried the ettore spot remover?
     
  5. I've still got the Ettore pot in the van. Save your money, go to Tesco and buy a product called Vikal. We use this on the cleaning side. Good stuff, costs about £3.

    Have you used it only bad windows Jamie? I was doing a couple of houses last week and I wonder sometimes why they bother getting them cleaned as they are absolutely covered in hard water stains?

    I have a customer with one really bad window, I've tried Vikal, MDR and bi carb / vinegar, it's all ****, would be cheaper and quicker to put a brick through it. I'm giving up on it if my sander doesn't work.

    I have used a product called :- kilrock. It comes in a liquid spray and a paint on gel. The spray is fantastic of getting limescale off but the gel is good on windows but not tried them on a large area just the of spots
