    Just use your flash mate, it'll be fine. We'll get through this.

    You could try
    I have a bit of my first clean combo left that i made by mixing some of my trad soap mix with virosol
    Not enough to waste on a roof
    Only needs a little splash on the brush and new cleans come up spotless and no effort to rinse off

    Cheers daveyboy1 will have to try cillit bang on a small area first and if it works happy days if not the power of pure and elbow grease will have to do :)

    I never really use chemicals, only ever used virisol once, and never used Ubik, I don't think it's needed for green roofs etc, you'd be surprised how easy it is to clean with just pure and the brush!

    Give it a go Dave, see how you get on with just pure...

    I always have just used an all purpose cleaner like flash but cheaper from the supermarket, usually the one from lidl or tesco, tesco ones about 25p. i use it on everything from UPVC, first cleans and car valeting dont see any point buying owt else tbh
