most likely culprit will be dirt running from the top frame. also if they have been cleaned for ages with soap, the residue can sometimes take a while to come out. wooden frames can be similar to the 1st scenario, impurities in the wood running down the glass, leaving spots. and there are a handfull of windows that just seem to spot whatever efforts you put in, but chances are that in time they'll come up good. can be advantageous to do them twice on the first clean, and give a good rinse

Sometimes the only answer is to blade the windows afterwards without detailing, I like using a Wagtail squeegee as it adjusts to the top of the frame when used on a pole, you become adept at using it after a lot of practice.It does add time to the job but enables you to keep the custy, which I think is better than having to find a new one.

Some Hydrophobic windows wil always spot :)
