    If it's white discolourd platic then ubik will get it a bit cleaner. However I found you can't beat a good hand job using something like a good upvc crean cleaner and none scratch pad to get rid of black/gery tiger strips, Some stubborn marks may never come off so you can only do the best you can.

    Ok thanks smurf i don't normaly use chemicals for anything but these gutters will deffo need somthing.

    Ive tryed using a solvent upvc cleaner on them before and it didn't even touch it.

    Whats the use for the ubik are you ment to use it on first cleans on the glass as well as frames ive never come across it before until I come on hear is it not a floor cleaner ?

    If you have already tried solvent cleaner by hand then ubik will probably make no difference on that plastic but try it and let us know.

    You can use strong sugar soap solution to remove stubborn grease but like Smurf said from time to time plastics got yellow and you cannot make them new again
