    i'm sure this has been covered before but what do you use to tackle the tiger stripes on facias? I guess these deposits are a combination of mineral deposits and filth but they seem to stick like glue. Just done one with hot soapy water and 99% is great but I've got about half a meter of stained bottom edge I want to get looking better.

    By hand method at this moment in time for tuf staining I tend to use cilit bang lime & shine power cleaner with a green or white scotch pads. I do however carry loads of different chems/cleaners in the van as I like to have a play with different ones.

    Thanks, I had a go with an old green scouring pad, didn't touch it. Will try Cilit bang and get some UPVC cleaner.

    cilit bang lime & shine does work but will need to let soak and use a bit of elbow grease with the scotch pad too

    I've cleaned yellow stained plastic using cilit bang lime & shine before & scrubbing with a green scotch pad but can be hard work and can take ages to do.
