Is Halfords TFR any good?

Hi guys

I've got a conservatory glass (I think) roof to clean on Monday so don't have any time to order anything online.

I don't want to show up to a roof that needs a bit more than a WFP scrub.

I've looked on Screwfix to see if there's anything I could spray on it first but I can't see anything.

I come across this on Halfords:

It only works out about £12 but has anyone used it ?

We use TFR and have never had a problem. Never used this one though. As long as you wet the roof first and only cover a couple of panels at a time, dont let it dry, you should be ok.

Machine Mart do a TFR, not the already diluted, which is less toxic but fine for conny roofs. Dilute 1 in 10

I don't have a machine mart near me.

There is a heavy duty degreaser in Screwfix that some reviews say is good for conservatory roofs as it can be diluted but I don't think I'll risk it.

Quite a few on here use it I think. As long as you dilute it, wet the roof and don't let it dry it will be fine. If it is a glass roof use customers tap and  plenty of water then rinse with pure

Thanks.

I was looking at that but I had a bad feeling about using a degreaser as I think of the engine degreasers that are used in garages. Although this one does seem to be water based.
I have read people use it and it does say it's good on plastics but when I read the reply where is said about cloudy perspex that would worry me too. If it were a glass roof then it should be OK but if you have alternatives then screwfix degreaser is a last alternative.

Thanks .

I found a small amount of truck wash in my shed so I'll get by with that for tomorrow as that dilutes to 100:1. But I'll need to get some new stuff after this job.
