Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove luminous yellow pollen stains from plastic window frames?

I'm not having much luck with google.

What have you done so far? If you get pollen wet it becomes a hundred times more difficult to remove. The best thing is sticky tape or a lint roller.

Thanks for your reply.

I tried wiping it with a dry microfibre cloth but it didn't budge. I then wiped it with cream cleaner which removed one of the stains but not the other. I've also tried bleach wiped on and then washed off.

I removed Lily pollen today from a plastic window frame using a Flash Magic Sponge Eraser thing. It came off really easily. Maybe give that a try. I think the sponge was £1, I got it in Tesco.

Okay - you might find that the one that won't budge now will actually fade in sunlight over time. If the magic eraser doesn't work, just leave nature to do its thing.

I got it off with Ajax, had to be slightly abrasive.

I'll give the Magic Eraser a try.

Thanks everyone
