    Well what is the issue? You say standard? Water marks? Spotting? Corners Missed?

    Yeah is a bit vague I suppose!

    its spotting that i have a problem with. Currently I wash the tops, rinse and then do the same with the bottoms. Do you scrub the underneath of the top panel as I was speaking with another windy who said to leave that alone but it seems the dirty water could be coming from there?

    Far more places to trap dirt thats my guess.

    I usually do all the tops of the sash windows and rinse. Then use brush with no water to wipe the drips away, then clean the bottom windows.

    Have you converted your round to WFP?

    the best way with sash windows it not to go above the glass, especially on the lower opener. i get spotting on the lower part because the paint is usually in poor condition and the water gets between the paint and the glass pulling dirt down. also rinse with the brush on the glass along the top edge of the glass to prevent the water going places it shouldnt.

    I do all the tops first then come back to the bottom. I'm using a brush now that fans out now and that seems to clean the corners better and not spot.
