    I have seen videos on utube where people just spray on virisol, leave it for a minute and the moss etc on gutters just drops off. I used 1:100 ratio today and it wasn`t like that. Still took a fair bit of brushing. I have a white garage door to do tomorrow. The dirt is well ground in. Think its plastic. Can you use this stuff neat if required or a stronger dose than I have been using today?

    Cheers,
    Steve

    I would use a stronger mix of about 1:10 as 1:100 I've found too weak for me. Just go careful with the stuff as best to test a small area first especially when using it neat and don’t let it dry on glass. Also stay well clear of so say self cleaning glass as best use a weak soap solution instead as a boost or just pure water.

    I use it 1:5 in a 5L sprayer. I did a conny roof today, sprayed all over with the mix. Sally sill brush, fan jets, pump on 90, done in under an hour. Love Virosol me :love:
