    Clean them again... then again... then again... They should look okay now? Failing that give your brush a good clean using *warm* water then rinse with pure water.

    Where on the window are the spots top, bottom or allover and how high do you have the pressure.

    I'm just guessing but I'd say other lads are right just more rinse mate and make sure it's chased right to bottom.

    when i first went wfp and wanted to practise, i use to soap the windows up with washing up liquid and leave to dry, then i would connect the pole to a out side tap and practise cleaning them, this way i could get my technique right to remove the dirt with out worrying about spotting, as once the technique is right and cleaned with pure water then the spots will go, if you can get windows clean with tap water then it is easier with pure, try it
