Anybody got a good way to clean UPVC windows/doors?

It is probably on here somewhere but I can't find it......does any one know a product to clean my 2 lovely new UPVC doors without scratching them? If not a commercial product, does any one know of an OS "potion" that will do the trick?

Thanks, Stella

    Yep, baby wipes are pretty good apparently. And if you go to our "Indexed Collections" sticky at the top of the board there's a link to a "Save Zillions on Cleaning Index" that has other tips you might like to try :)

    I use good old Astonish, the paste in a tub, £1 from the pound shops. You can also get it in Orange fragrance now (use that in my bathroom) I find if you need something more than just water and elbow grease, that does the job, then wipe off with a clean cloth. Lovely and clean UPVc once more.

    Works a treat in my shower too. Only 85p from Home Bargains.

    I think I'll get some Astonish first, sounds like a pretty useful product - there is a Home Bargains store near my office.

    Many thanks to everyone who replied

    I have used Jif before, chap ijn the trade told em to use that. You can also get upvc spray, stinks a bit but that also works. I got mine from screwfix.

    I usually wipe down my UPVC window and door frames with warm water and a squirt of washing liquid, anyone any other ideas that will clean them?
