    Hello All,

    Does anyone know of any good chemical or cleaner that would clean black run marks off white upvc frames & sills.
    I was cleaning windows for a customer that i clean for every two weeks, and her neighbour asked me it i could give her a quote for cleaning all her white upvc as her current window cleaning doesn`t clean them, and she is looking for another window cleaner..
    Its a 3 bedroom semi,I told her i would charge £50 for cleaning all her frames and sills & include cleaning her windows.
    and if she wanted it done on a periodical i would charge her £10 every clean.

    Any advice guys would be apprecitated

    Thanks

    Be careful the black stuff isn't the rubber seals on the window oxidising. You might find it will bleed out if that is the case.

    Cheers for the reply laddergarder,
    Its not the black seals mate, I checked that one.
    Her window cleaner wasn`t mopping up after him, what a lazy bugger... all the black run marks are moslty on the fasica part of the sills mate.

    What is known in the trade a tiger stripes can come off with a upvc cream cleaner also good at bringing greying/discolured plastic back to white.

    I use siroflex trade strength upvc cream cleaner also ubik 2000 aswell.

    The pic belows was just using ubik with a none scatch white pad washing up sponges (multipack) from asda but please note will not get tiger stripes off plastic using chems like viro-sol, tfr or ubik on it's own.

    Was going to say that gaffer but don't expect it to work that well. Also those magic sponges fall apart very fast too... :D

    The ones I have are allright. If you rub to hard the fall apart very easily though.
