    what i use to clean upvc is everbuild solvent cleaner, most upvc stockists have this on the shelf as do some builders merchants.
    for really stubborn stains like on cills etc you need a cream cleaner like the old jif (now cif but the new stuff is no good).

    hope this helps, a word of warning tho'.... once you start cleaning the windows and doors with the solvent you cant stop half way through as you will end up with stripes that'll show under the street lights ((experienced this a few times))

    I was just thinking the same thing
    Just had my house repointed and the windows could now do with a bloody good clean up
    Repointing is the messy job around

    MER car polish will restore
    Just read above posts do not use jiff ect as they scratch the upvc so attract more dirt and grime in the future so look dirtier quicker

    Now thank me
