    I did clean them using ecolab. Problem is that there is very difficult access so i was thinking to spray them with something leave to soak and just rinse after.

    I actually find that a simple solution of Ecover Washing up liquid and water sprayed on and left for 10 minutes is great in a number of situations.

    I make mine with a good 3 sec squirt of Ecover in 5L of water, then spray liberally. Leave for 10mins, and clean off with a brush with a bit of cleaning power to it - A brush that you would use of a first clean.

    thanks Paul

    I clean them with Ecover, and brush as well. i hope that someone could recommend heavy duty cleaner. Owners just bought house and let me
    experiment with this "dodgy" windows. I scrape them and dirt got off, but there is a very difficult access. I managed to order scaffold otherwise is impossible to clean them. :Image16:

    You could always try that chemical that RCProperty recommends for getting black mould off cony roofs:



    Here is his site and the sales page for the chemical he uses:
    http://rcpropertymaintenance.vpweb.co.uk/Cleaning-Supplies.html

    I haven't used it myself, maybe he could tell you if it might help on your windows.

    Should you really use that chemical? The chemical that shouldn't be allowed into the water course!
    6.2. Environmental precautions
    Any spillage needs to be contained and not allowed to enter water courses, Spillages or uncontrolled discharges into watercourses must be
    IMMEDIATELY alerted to the Environmental Agency or other appropriate regulatory body.
