    Iv got some skylights to clean they get messed on daily and the gulls use them for a resting place. The glass is a special photo sensitive glass so no scrapers iv tried hot water and a stiff broom some lumps wont come off and cant get the staining off. They are nearly sholder height and quite lohg and wide so hard to apply a lot of pressure. Any idears PLEASE

    Pre soak with hot pure water, should be gone in a minute or two. The most stubborn one I encountered turned out to be cement covered pooh. The special glass is glass still. It's not any different, it's not a coating it's a manufacturing process, so scraper in hand go and be a window cleaner.
