    Just wondered if anyone knows what will get this stuff off the glass without too much work, I'm pretty sure I can get it off with a good scrub of bicarb or t-cut but wondered what might just dissolve it, I don't think virosol is the right stuff (tell me if I'm wrong) as this isn't just grease or anything, it's really etched into the glass and theres loads of it on one house I'm doing again next week and a fair bit on one I did couple days ago.

    Would tfr do it?.

    I sSwear word!e with a sSwear word!er and if there's any marks left I'll put a bit of neat virosol on a cloth and give it a scrub, if that doesn't shift it then its staying there and I'll move on.

    A hammer sometimes works if a good scrub and viro doesn't do the job :D

    Always worth a try lol, didn't think virosol would shift something like that. Gave it a good scrub last month but hadn't got anything in car to fetch it off.
