My double glazed back door window has become almost opaque in places due
to build up of a milky residue between the panes of glass. Any hints on
what to do about that?? :)
PS. Thanks to those who responded in my "Stuck stop tap" thread.
Applying a judicious amount of heat sort it out :)
Is it a residue, or is it condensation? (if the latter, a little heat
in one area, say from a hair drier, will clear that bit).
Condensation is a problem in sealed units and not easily fixed. I've
got it in one of mine, and I don't know a solution short of replacing
the whole darn thing.
OK... There's a bit of condensation and over the years it appears to
have left the residue. I'll try a hair dryer....
What I'm curious about is that the condensation is surely pure water so
why does it leave a residue?
This is typical of the edge seal failure. The only cure for this is complete
window replacement but this time replace it with one which has a well
designed edge seal. This often used to occur with edge strips called
"swiggle strips" which were plastic and allowed movement and therefore
