    also if the are white plastic or aluminium frames, lick your finger and wipe it on the frames if you get white residue on your finger they are oxidised.

    need to get this off,

    just try a pane of glass aswell without doing any frame see what you get.

    I only started wfp last month and this happened to me, think its just because I don't spend enough time getting all the dirt off the frames at first. (First clean) try them again, that's what I did and they turned out fine

    on first cleans you need to use lots of water if they aint been cleaned for a while. never put any water near air vents either, i normally start on the small window on the top and then do the others so when i go to the window below the small window the water wont drip down. :)

    Also mainly on first cleans pay particular attention to rubber seals on plastic frames too as they can hold in loads of old soap and dirt which can leach out causing drip marks
