    Hi guys
    I cleaned my own windows today and noticed spotting once dried
    It looks like greasy/ sticky marks around the outside of each spotting .
    Not really noticeable unless you catch windows in right reflection .
    My water is on 001 so that shouldn't be a problem.
    I have been using vision for just over a week now
    Just hopeing it's not happening on customers windows! I haven't checked as I don't go bk to collect!
    I always scrub well and rinse thoroughly .
    Just wondering if this happens to anyone else or could it be vision additive ??
    Thanks

    Like a soapy residue? I've noticed it too. I'm thinking about knocking it on the head tbh.

    I've stopped using it as to be honest the bubbles annoyed the hell out of me.
    I prefer to use a boost (not vision) if need be on my brush directly rather than having an additive mixed in the tank.

    you guys may have overdosed on it overtime having an accumilative effect,sometimes its better to say have one day in the week without adding anything just to purge the residue and start again on an even keel,the bubbles can cause an annoyance sometimes:devil:,you could also try reducing the dosage by half if the bubbles annoy you and see how it goes.

    Really stormy weather has been playing havoc all over the place. Windows getting hammered with dirt and tree sap etc. Windows need a more thorough rinse in this kind of weather.
