    I stupidly ran out of ubik without realising. I ordered some more which was supposed to be delivered today. It hasn't turned up.

    I desperately need some for a job tomorrow morning and then on Monday morning too.

    Can anyone recommend something that I can buy in (preferably) B&Q that will do the job?

    I've got a gutter and fascia job in the morning and have another one on Monday plus a cladding clean to do.

    What I'll do is get up to screwfix for 7am and pick up some of that degreaser. It's worth a punt at £5.99 for five litres.

    Bit too far to drive but you could have picked some up from me mate. Got ubik and virosol in stock.

    Cheers Damo. Shame you're not a tiny bit closer. I'll try the screwfix stuff. The reviews seem pretty good, people using it to degrease bike parts and engines so I'm sure it'll shift a bit of muck off some fascias.
