    Going to be spraying ubik onto pvc guttering then cleaning it off with wfp. Just wondering what ratio with water do you dilute it to?

    10-1 would be a good start and see how you go.

    I usually stick it in a sprayer so 10-1 is simply measure 1 unit of ubik to 10 units of water roughly depending what size I'm using. For inside conservatory cleans then same again but I usually use a bucket instead this time with hot water using microfiber cloths to wash down plastic frames etc.

    Yes bud
    If you want to use it on glass then spray some on a wfp brush or spray some on a trad mop if you like.
