    Is it just run off not splatter? If it's run off it should come off easily, failing that get a scraper on it with plenty of soap

    I have a house where they have a flat lead roof over a bay. Rain water runs off it onto the glass and has stained it. I can rub most of it off with a cloth, but it has returned by the next clean. I've given up on it now and just WFP it and carry on regardless.

    Maybe its a little bit more than run off then, As I bladed it to start off with, No joy! So tried to scrape it of still no hoy!
    Needs something with a bit of bite in it for it to even budge!
    Is there nothing on the market for this specific job?


    CnC yes i have heard someone say cillit bang! And the only bang we need is the barrels of a 12 bore at Barry Scott! :D

    I'm of Tuffers thinking: carry on regardless. They fked it up, theycan live with it. But generally a good soapy scrape and a splash of vinegar gets most thinks off.

    Yep, I've gone as far as using viakal on it which is really nasty s***, still no joy, so the only stuff I will carry and use is vinegar since it won't damage your health.

    Lol. I think it was abs that clicked the 'old' button on one of my posts, I assume (and hope) it was an accident. Any chance you can dislike this post for me so I can have a round number please?
