    I'm new to wfp and just bought a set up and got or acting on my own windows, I have cleaned them 5 times now and still spotting on them!
    Tds is 000 and I am rinsing loads plus giving frames a good scrub but still spotting
    They are normal upvc double glazed windows
    Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
    Would this vision or some other product on the brush help?
    Very disheartening to say the least

    If you have a really close look in the top of the frames and seals there will be muck
    There's always a reason for spotting
    You learn more when it goes wrong so look CLOSELY
    Usually seals

    I have done as I was conscience of the vents and the seals so I scrubbed and scrubbed them
    It's every window some worse than others
    Have to make more pure now as I'm empty but might run it straight through di see if that makes a diff

    If it's zero already then won't make any difference
    Send a pic of frames and seals
     
  5. Hydrophilic or hydrohorrible?

    Is the spotting in straight lines of dots? If so the seals are ****. If you are getting lines of dots let them run down the glass and when they have stopped running, rinse as close to the highest dot near the frame and see if that makes a difference.

    I'll try and find a pic of what I mean.

    Do the spots rub off once dry? If not it could be pre existing mineral staining. I know this is basic stuff but you did state you were new to wfp. Mineral spots are usually only visible, or certainly "more" visible on a clean window & even more so once it's a dry, clean window.

    steve hawing - some good tips above. All I would add is try not to let it dishearten you. Carry on going and you will look back on this and laugh one day. Everything takes time & practice. Keep going fella :)

    I was going to say the same as Winpro, could just be hard water marks.
