If it is water type stains that have been there for years then good luck with that as now just takes too long trying to get rid so I don't bother anymore.

I keep meaning to use this stuff. I've got a bottle of it in the van, but it's in one of the baffle holes and I keep forgetting I have it. A woman on my round got it from Spain for me and bloody hell it shifts muck off PVC.

What I call tiger stripes is greyish/blackish vertical staining that looks like stripes that shows up on vertical surfaces of white plastic. That you willl see on outside edge of guttering, fascia boards, window sills, cladding, plastic trim etc which is due to dirt/grime build up that doesn't normally come off using pure water.

I had someone bin me because of tiger stripes. The stripes were on brand new windows on an extension. I was the only person to clean them and using only pure. The rest of the house was OK. Strange!
