    When you clean your own house windows, how do they look when you look out of them in full sun? Mine look absolutely shocking :eek:. I can trad them or WFP them and it is always the same result and that's including cleaning the insides too. So many what looks like dust particles that never shift, it's like hair lacquer has been sprayed on the glass and dried solid. They look great out of the sun :cool:. I wonder how many houses have glass as bad as mine?

    Here's an example. Ignore the finger smudge, but look at the dusty effect.

    Have you ever used a scraper on them Tuffers? If its been a while then it might be worth doing it again because that looks bad. Even in the worst sun mine are perfect bar the odd smear along the top of some windows...usually when I'm too lazy to change out for a dry scrim.

    My first thoughts it was either hard water staining, salt marks or tree sap if it can't be cleaned off by just using either trad or wfp.
