    Hi,
    Im a newbie and this is probably a stupid question. Reading posts it says dilute Virosol 1:100 to clean garage doors and conservatory roofs etc. I have a 5 litre sprayer. How do you measure 1:100? Do you put in a cupfull of Virosol and fill up to 5 litres with water or am I missing something here?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    1 litre = 1000 milliliters
    so divide 5000 by 100 = 50

    Add 50ml of virosl to a 5 ltr sprayer then top it up with water to the 5 litre line which would give you a 1:100 mix.

    50ml works out approx 4 cap fulls using the the screw cap that comes with the virosol 5ltr container.

    If you want to try a stronger mix then now you can work out how to do it.
