    Just thought I would alert you all to this stuff...

    http://www.diy.com/departments/hg-window-cleaner-bottle/161656_BQ.prd

    Its only my second day using it and I love it. Its got me wondering what all the other specialist window soaps are like now.

    Its best feature is that it is so easy to detail. Its like wiping off plain water, instead of a sticky soap, yet it has loads of slip. Bubbles up nicely, and leaves a good shine. I've bought about six bottles now, and I'm saving my magnum premium for the dirty 1st cleans where the waters just going to get chucked anyway.

    With my trade card I'm buying it in for £3 a bottle at B&Q. On the subject of B&Q has anyone seen that they now have a huge industrial cleaning section?

    Nice review. I think I'll try it too. On a similar note, I've tried the screwfix 5L degreaser, been good so far on car, alloys, windows, and cleaned my shower and glass, about 1:10 ratio. Got ingrained black off the shower tiles easily

    Jimroot have u tried it on grey upvc instead of ubik maybe? Worth a shot if it does the job a lot of us could save on postage costs

    haven't tried upvc yet, It's probably very similar to the popular degreasers. If I remember I'll update here when I do

    I'm planning to head there tomorrow to pick up a long reach hedge trimmer, I may just pick some up. I've already spent a fortune on cleaning gear this month.
