Where can I buy a ubik/virosol alternative first thing tomorrow morning?



Recommended Posts

I stupidly ran out of ubik without realising. I ordered some more which was supposed to be delivered today. It hasn't turned up.

 

I desperately need some for a job tomorrow morning and then on Monday morning too.

 

Can anyone recommend something that I can buy in (preferably) B&Q that will do the job?

I've got a gutter and fascia job in the morning and have another one on Monday plus a cladding clean to do.

Unfortunately i have none left and a tiny bit of hypo enough for the roof i saved it for

I ise this in times of need if out of ubik on first cleans from asda but not as strong as virosol but a quid a bottle

It may help as it does take the green cack off

What I'll do is get up to screwfix for 7am and pick up some of that degreaser. It's worth a punt at £5.99 for five litres.

Bit too far to drive but you could have picked some up from me mate. Got ubik and virosol in stock.

Cheers Damo. Shame you're not a tiny bit closer. I'll try the screwfix stuff. The reviews seem pretty good, people using it to degrease bike parts and engines so I'm sure it'll shift a bit of muck off some fascias.

Well, I got up early and got down to screwfix for 7am. Bought the stuff, went and filled up with water and had a chat and then set off to the job looking forward to giving it a try.

 

Got there and the bloke started trying to haggle on the price that we'd agreed on the phone. I told him I wasn't going to budge and in the end he decided he didn't want the fascias cleaning. I could have had an extra half hour in bed. Twat.

I used the screwfix degreaser for the first time this morning. I had a moderately dirty gutter, fascia and cladding job to do first thing. I'd say it's definitely as good as ubik/virosol although I won't fully endorse it until I've used it on a couple of really dirty jobs. Definitely worth £5.99 for five litres though.

I'm tempted to swing by screwfix tomorrow to get some as i have a fsg job thursday that i can't hypo due to all the lead on the windows i don't want to turn brown

Neil said he'd lend me a little ubik until i pick some up but a good excuse to try the screwfix stuff
