    Virosol or ubik is best but the cheapest way to get it is virosol 2x5l for £19.99 delivered from amazon
    They do ubik but for some reason it's a tenner more
    You don't need anything stronger as you dilute it anyway
    For dirty fascias i dilute it as if making a strong glass of orange squash..no need for more
    I must have done about 20 fascia/conny roof jobs lately and only used about a 3rd of a 5l container and that's pouring some in a bucket with water
    Put it in a spray bottle and spray the brush and it'll last a lot longer
    I spray on the brush for 1st cleans and it works wonders

    Yeah, he's talking about Ubik 2000. Dave sorted me out with some virosol the other day and it's great. I've got ten litres of the stuff coming any day now.

    I use autosmart g101 it's a car valeting all purpose cleaner. It's about 30-40 quid for 25l and lasts forever. I use it at 5-1 for engine degreasing so neat it's going to be pretty potent

    Crumbs that's really expensive, do you have a local janitorial supplier nearby Dave?

    Cos I pay £6 for 5 litres of ubik or virosol,

    That's seems really deer?!
