    I have a house which has not been cleaned for over 3 years and all the white frames are stained black. what is the best thing to get them closer to white again.

    My problem is the windows have a very nice flower bed directly under them and the owner also has animals so need something that wont kill there flowers or there pets!

    We use diluted traffic film remover which works brilliantly. I don't think it will harm the animals as its diluted and they are not actually drinking it. you can find it anywhere on the net and its sold from 1 litre bottles upwards. It's normally used in car washing and it doesn't effect a cars paint so its fine for plastic.

    Ecover sounds good but will it kill plants as they have some very nice flowers directly under the window.

    I think it is plant based and I would cover the plants temporary because over watering can damage plants
