your friend is correct more likely to go pinkish tho rather than yellow, you can get specialist upvc cleaning fluid which will do the job but make sure area is well ventillated, if theres a local upvc window company near you ask them if they sell it otherwise ebay have listings it's not to expensive but does the job brings them up like new with a bit of elbow not use a green scourer tho, may seem easier but you'll end up with greenish window frames.
