  1. Applogies as I'm sure this has been asked before.
    Just booked in a fsg clean on a bungalow. Not done one before.
    I don't normally use any chemicals as I'm happy with pure water for windows. I don't have time to order anything in and I'm miles from anywhere that might stock stuff.
    What would be the best household type product to use to remove the green?
    I've allowed half a day to do it? Is that enough?
    Thanks

    Screwfix UPVC cleaner is pretty good, i transfer it to a pump sprayer, even dilute it slightly

    I often use good old green fairy liquid. In most cases its the agitation/scrubbing that does most of the cleaning, not the chemical used, so no need to buy anything specially for it- just use whats under your sink.

    Out of all the houeshold products I would say flash muti purpous gel is good stuff. If then you need to get rid of tiger stripes (black run marks) then cif cream cleaner will work with a non scratch white pot scrubber (washing up sponge) ;)
