    Quick Schoolboy question- I'm using Virasol today to clean some fascias. The instructions regarding dilution read- Heavy Dirt: Undiluted/General cleaning: 1:50-1:100/Light Cleaning: 1:200. General Cleaning applies to me, so what is the correct ratio of water to Virasol?

    That's great- thought it was roughly 3/4 water. Thanks for the help!

    Thanks guys, 3/4 mix seemed to work. Came up a treat in the end, just took forever with keep having to lay ladder down(due to high winds) inbetween each run up to apply the Virasol, and I seemed to get just as wet working down narrow alley beside house. Kills your back as well- not my favourite job but the £££ was good anyways.
