    got a big tub of double strength tfr to try and watered it down to 4-1 and sprayed it on sills and left for 5 mins, came back and still had to scrub the sills but didnt get rid of the deep stains etc?
    just wondered if anyone on here tried it?

    i tried traffic film remover in the past but wasnt to impressed , for cills try sodium hypochlorite or chloras as its known and no scrubbing , just leave it soak for a few mins but keep it away from glass as it can etch the glass and is near impossible to get off , it can be bought in farmers suppliers or swimming pool suppliers

    What about ubik or virosol are they any stronger than tfr?

    Virisol on a magic sponge will get rid of most deep stains.

    my preference is ubix , especially on manky first cleans, but not on very bad cills , its all down to personal choice . theres also autosmart g101 which is great on bad facia and soffit cleans which is stronger than ubix or virosol but it can stain if left on to long

    I used solvent once, i scratched some sills with my proclean brush when first started, it worked but it did strip the sheen off the plastic
    I wouldn't recommend using it, i find once you start using serious cleaning agents on pvc you only ruin it, the sheen on plastic is a gel coat from where it has been extruded so once removed the plastic becomes porous.

    autosmartg101 is good stuff, id quoted for a job couple of months ago and they had 3 companies come and do test on the same day to see how clean it comes up, i used ubik on my test and one of the others had used autosmartg101 and the results were a lot lot better than the ubik.
