    Buy a 5.4 metre pre spray extension lance from mosskillers (google them) then simply use Ubik2000 1 part to approx 8 or 10 water, I sometimes go stronger if it's really bad and the weathers not to hot to dry it before you wash it off as it can stain if left on too long. Thats all I use for plastic cleans and there come up great and shine well.

    Mix a bit of washing up liquid with water and ubik so it is thicker and apply with your wfp brush
    Then turn on water and scrub
    Works for me

    Anyone use any eco-friendly cleaning agents on fascias, like ecover or similar? I sometimes spray on some ecover and vinegar mix before washing off with oure but I don't know if it makes a difference or not as pure on its own works fine for me too.

    Ubik or virosol, either go b&q for a Harris pole or buy a cheap carbon fishing pole. Extend the lance on a pressure sprayer with pole hose. You can also just attach it to your wfp to spray it on. Ubik and virosol are made by clover by the way and are plant based so are eco friendly.

    Just hot pure on it's own is fine for most, but on really bad ones like the type that aint been cleaned for 15 years plus I find just hot pure even at 75/85 deg needs some kind of alkaline solution to break it up to make sure there fully cleaned. If I forget my extension pre sprayer, I just wet a bit down first then spray solution on my brush and work it in for a min or 2 then scrub and wash off.

    Be nice to have hot pure, but a black van and a sun is all I have to heat my water so it's usually just luke warm :D

    Always assumed ubik abd virosol were chemicals, didn't realise they were natural - I will be checking them out soon in that case :thumbsup:
