    I mainly use it on first cleans of windows, conservatory roofs, fascias, gutters, upvc cladding etc. It's good stuff and makes jobs a lot easier.

    Here's a couple of jobs I've done recently with ubik. I hate to think how much longer they would have taken if I'd not used ubik.

    I ordered 2 gallons of ubik 2000 yesterday. If tradding do u just put some on your applicator then wipe over the frames then rinse off? For conservatory roofs do you spray it on then scrub it and rinse ?

    I never used it when I was trad but I'm sure you could do that. Or spray it directly onto the frame and give it a good wipe with a microfibre.

    With conny roofs I spray the whole roof and then go and do something else for ten minutes to give it a chance to get to work then scrub and rinse.

    image.jpeg I use it with a dash in a spray bottle for 1st cleans and I use a brush that connects to hose with hoze lock fitting when doing things like polycarbonate roof attached just dip brush in a bucket with dash of Ubik in.

    Diluted mate. I normally use ten parts water, one part ubik although play around with it and see what you prefer.

    After looking on here for some good advice, i use ubik- not sure to what dilution (i guess) mixed with eco cover washing up liquid. I think the eco cover thickens it up a bit so it isn't a too thin liquid that just runs off the brush. Although I would welcome any tips on how to get as much eco cover onto the windows without it running off the brush (still runs off abit). Currently I wet the frames and windows slightly, then i have to bring the brush all the way down to ground level and then backup. Do these pump up sprayers actually work and can anyone recommend one?
