Window film removal?

Ian from Papanui

Our 45-year-old windows have got a faint but irritating film on the outside that is resisting vigorous scrubbing with detergents up to and including Sugar Soap.

Some sort of mild/fine abrasive may be in order? Suggestions please...

Hopes for a much-vaunted lowering of the increase to zero have been dashed, with staff warning the policy would cause “unprecedented” redundancies, jeopardise projects and flout direct advice from the Government.

The authority also faces borrowing more than $100m over the next two years to pay for its coronavirus response and make up for an expected $61.8m in lost dividends from the trading companies it owns.
