    Just did a decking area yesterday all i used was ubik and a soft gardiner brush. OMG how amazingly easy and what a result. It cleaned it very quickly and easily.

    has anybody else used ubik for anything like that?

    They had an outside tap but had turned the water off as was an end of tenancy clean so all my van water is pure before it hits the van so no good using that with a pressure washer as it damages the seals so thought give the ubik a try.

    Got it wet with a fan jetted brush, sprayed some diluted ubik 2000 onto it left it for 10 minutes then just brushed down the grain and hey presto a very clean decking area without everything else covered in stuff.

    I am definately going to be using it again on decking charged £80 for about 3 sq metres took about 35 minutes including setup time and cleaning the windows too which was an extra £10 on top. Happy days. :Image12:

    I've found using ubik apart from the usual plastic cleans works great on fithy painted wooden fascia etc too but never tried it on decking.

    What mix did you use?

    Probably rough poured guesstimate of maybe 20 to 1.
