    Sufactant....stops it drying out so quick and also makes it sit where you sprayed it so it can work better

    you shouldn't be using fairy or any other washing up with liquid,sodium hypochlorite it doesn't like any acids of which there will be a small amount in any washing up liquid,there are only two surfactants that can be used safely with sh,one of them is lauramine oxide,you could however buy that cleverwash stuff just overpriced which is the same,please guys think of your lungs-and everyone elses and not cut corners to save a couple of quid its really not worth it.

    Anyone ever used copper sulphate on roofs?
    Seen a few vids on youtube and it kills algae and plants and lasts months
