    How are you cleaning them?, have you checked your water?

    If its drop marks from the frames.. maybe you trying to rinse to fast after washing it.. wash the next window an then come back an rinse it again quickly just the glass..

    My own windows do this no matter how much water I use on them. I think it may be something to do with old black window seals (not sills), because I've never seen it happen on new windows or windows where the seal is white plastic. It doesn't bother me on my home as it's only right at the top couple of inches, however, if it causes a problem for a customer I run a blade (sgueegee) along the top of the window just below the seal so that no water runs off the seal after I've left. On upstairs windows I do as quoted

    Yep I get this on my house windows. Always the top inch or so has run marks. Must be the black seals.

    Always wondered if that's how my customers are drying and I'm sure some must do...oh well

    My water was ok but i did wash the frame then rinse same window straight away.They are quite old plastic frame windows with black seals so maybe it's the seals.Will try to avoid the frame next time and do the come back method as well.
