    hi guys i previosly asked how to make ubik in the end i just experimented myself
    this chemical can strip a window of all the **** that has been burnt on the window after years of dust and sun the kind of stuff i get on every first clean round here
    5 l of bathroom descaler (the powder they sell to clean the dishwasher can also be used but dilute with water)
    1 l of vinegar
    5l of cheap washing up liquid comes in a big gallon
    3l of ro water

    thats it just mixx it up and use i usualy bring my back pack along and pump the stuff up on the windows then scrub em and let it dry on the window before getting it off
    warning takes ages to get off with the water id recomend using water after ro and only finishing off with otds water
    this works in cases when i thought wtfp was useless an i have to go up on a boom lift to scrape the disgusting **** off;)

    By comparison your solution will be expensive.
    Also I don't see the point of wasting RO water if you're just mixing it with a load of soap and descaling liquid.

    We run a cleaning company seperate from the window cleaning buisness and the discaler we use is same sort of consistancy as fairy liquid. looking at you recpie it only makes 14lt and thats including dilution,as green said expensive i would think it would want a lot of rinsring off aswell. Ubik 2000 dilluted at least 5 to 1 cost 8.64 inc vat 5lts makes at least 30lts i normaly dillute it more than that.
