    Never attempted soft wash before, was planning to test this out on the paving slabs and an unsighted wall at the back of my house. There is no information on the strength of this particular Hypo on the drum, I picked it up from a farm shop while I was out and about today £14 after vat 20ltr. Good price? Anyway what strength is it and recommended dilution, its called 'Deosan Red Label Hypochlorite'. IMG_6182.JPG IMG_6181.JPG

    On paving slabs I wouldn't dilute it very much, maybe 1 part water to 2 parts chemical. Any more diluted and it will dry out before it gets the job done.
