    Never tried Ubik as Virosol has done a good job for me in the past. I tend to use a ratio of 5 parts water to 1 part Virosol. Probably a bit on the strong side really but it works :thumbsup:. Try something like 10:1 and see how it goes and adjust the ratio if needs be.

    Yeah, 10:1 should do it.

    And make sure it doesn't dry on ;)

    I did a conny roof today, not a minger, but plenty of green on the finial and crest. I sprayed the diluted Virosol on the finial and crest and rinsed it off. I found that on this clean I didn't need to pre-spray the polycarb roof as the chemicals off the top ran off and softened up the green on it. For some odd reason there were a few holes in the polycarb. The customer reckoned it was magpies that had been pecking it :confused:. Oh, and he said he'd had a quote a few years ago to clean the whole conny. This bloke rolled up in a flash 4x4 and spent about 2 hours walking round the conny pointing out things he would be doing. Guess how much the quote was? 5 fookin grand!!!:eek:

    So I'm not the most expensive cleaner out there then :D

    At that price he was probably quoting for replacing the damaged roof panels, any blown dg units and other bits that needed sorting not just cleaning it surely?
