Mold!

I was a bit worried about these white mouldy spots I found on one of me window frames. The greying is condensation from the metal frames on the ill thought out water based varnish, but the spots were worrying.

If you want proper varnish, ignore the rubbish eco-friendly "indoor varnish" that goes milky every time it gets wet. Buy exterior varnish at the same price, even if the smell is a bit heady when painting. You won't need to re-do the job later, which must be good for the environment in the end!
