    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.

    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.

    Have you tried Stardrops? Seems to work for me, certainly gets all the muck off, but I'm not too sure about shiny....

    just ask the neighbour...?
  • JennyW
    I've used cillit bang in the past although knew of someone who used dishwasher powder, made into a paste and applied to the upvc. But as kaan_is said, could you not ask the neighbour?
