  • I used to have UPVC windows in my old house and used car tyre cleaner from the pound shop (I'm trying to remember how I discovered this!). It really works! I told my mum about this and she didn't believe me until she tried it. Now that's all she uses. Its the foamy stuff, not the spray btw.

    I bought some wipes in B & Q for cleaning pvc garden furniture. They are called Minkies and did an excellent job on my window frames.
  • I use product called upvc restorer to clean uPVC Windows. its excellent. approx £5 a bottle but very good.
  • I have used Astonish oven and hob cleaner for years and mine are still as good as new. I get lots of black tyre marks on my front door off the kids bikes and this takes all that off too
    Start by doing what's necessary, then do what's possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible:j

    I use Anti Bacterial Handwash with a squirt of vinegar and a dash of bicarb in warm water and dry off with adry cloth gets rid of dirt and yellowing a treat
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones that let in the light

    I have made a bit of a blunder and put bleach onto my pvc window sills and forgot to remove it. It has left a brown stain, any ideas on how to get rid of this anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have just tried nail varnish remover to clean my upvc front door. It really works. I had some marks that I couldn't remove when I used other stuff like stardrops. The nail varnish remover removes everything straight away, even the shoe marks which had been there for years.

    I will clean the rest tomorrow. Will have to wear washing up gloves as it is drying my hands out. This stuff also leaves a shine behind which is great.

    Good tip guys ...... thanks....:beer:

    I might try the toothpaste next time, but for now nail varnish remover is a great upvc cleaner....
