    what do you use to remove stains on upvc that are heavily grained in . if that makes sense.

    i use virosol on s.f.g's and cons roofs which does bring them up good but doesnt get rid of the heavy dark stains

    cheers

    Depends what the dark stains are. What exactly are you talking about?

    Most types of none scratch cream and solvent based upvc cleaner would do but as mentioned before magic sponge can also work well.

    Some very old fascia, guttering, window frames, sills etc you will find very hard to get tiger stripes off especially above conservatories that have not been cleaned for years...

    I've found it best to be up front and personal but can also do by pole if ladders are not your thing
