    its the tops of the frames usually...they take a while to settle down...me I still whip up the ladder as I dont wfp the sills and as I am wiping the sill keep an eye out for it...
    make sure you dont get carried away and splash around too much as well...not so easy with old shakey the banana...:D

    wait for the experts to wakey wakey as I am only an apprentice...

    Did you clean the top frame when tradding? Are you now cleaning the top frame? Is the spotting in straight lines coming from the black seal?

    Sounds like it's your final rinse technique if it's spotting all over the glass.

    Use a decent flow rate and methodically rinse the whole pane of glass from top to bottom.

    If in doubt, rinse again.

    if you have a good flow of water keep the brush close to the window if you have it away from the window and its splashing that can cause spotting.
