Now this is not a Sunday morning hangover story. I’m wondering if anyone has used this product ‘Wet and Forget’ Link?

It’s for removing mould, moss , lichens etc. You just spray it on and let in work. I’m not sure if it is suitable for motorhomes and caravans, it probably would work. But I need to remove a lot of moss from the roof of my house. I can’t get up there to use a power washer so thought this might be a good alternative.

If anyone has used this product I would be grateful to hear about it and if anyone knows where I might source this in Ireland I would be extra pleased.

Used it on the Patio a couple of times. It worked great and lasted for about two years. It's slow to work initially but does a good job once it gets going. It can also be used to remove Moss/Algae from the roof of your Motorhome.

Available from Clarkes of Cavan, €45 for 5 Litres.

I've used it on the motorhome roof. It works great and lasts a couple of years. Again I got mine from Clarke's of Cavan, the price includes shipping but if you live in N.I. it's cheaper from Amazon but they don't ship to ROI.

Clarke’s do free delivery on orders over €50. I can easily make the difference. I have yet to come up with a method of application.

I wonder do Clarke’s sell these?

I use one similar to this https://www.woodies.ie/garden-…er-1066909 I can spray even under the solar panel. The last time I bought from Clarke's I only bought the 5 litres of it and it was postage free.

I’m looking to do the roof of a 2 story house, so the garden sprayer won’t cut it.

Are you satisfied that it is ok with aluminium and paintwork on the motorhome?
I have got it to use on the house roof but would like assurance before using it on motorhome.

This link is taken from the wet and forget website, although it is the American arm.

http://www.wetandforget.com/bl…your-boat/

And here in the FAQs of the UK website,

https://www.wetandforget.co.uk/faqs

Loads of happy users in GB using it on Motorhomes if you google it. Some threads will have before and after pictures. I have to admit I have not used it myself but don’t think I have read any negative posts.

Just a thought. Fill a balloon with the product and launch it with a drone and when in position whack it with a catapult.

Its a dilute solution of Benzalkalonium Chloride (BAC), less than 10% I think.
These are ammonium salts and are also used to disinfect areas.
I got mine from a company called Mistral and its called Lancelot and uses DDAC instead of BAC which is a more effective chemical.
Diluted down to 1:4 with water and use a garden pressure sprayer to apply it in a mist.
The effect lasts for a long time, at least a few month but the trick is to apply it and let it dry in, don't try to do it on a wet day or the rain washes it away and it won't work.
It needs I think about 6 hrs and it will dry in.
It will kill moss off tarmac as well so very useful stuff.
One word of warning, use safety goggles when you are spraying and a mask, this stuff is very bad for eyes and safety glasses are not effective.
I sprayed my van with it and it killed all the green algae and the moss that grows on the foam pads in the corner of Ducato windscreens.

I am completely serious about the Nerf Supersoaker by the way. If that doesn’t work I will be wasting €45 on the Wet&Forget. It should work.

Mine is the same and I use a different version of it, no standing for hours washing concrete

Sounds perfect Martin, but that’s €139. And that’s just the lance. I’d need to buy the sprayer. That’s a bit out of budget. I wonder could I rent something similar.

The Lancelot Green Cleaner reads like it would be ideal to clean the MH roof alright.

Is there anybody stocking it in Ireland?

That might work. I could try out the power washer directed at the roof first to get some idea. I’m not sure what the dilution rate would be but it’s worth exploring. Cheers John

I've ordered 5L of Wet & Forget from Clarkes. After putting the order through, I notice they also sell the product with a hose end sprayer applicator. It allows you to attach the garden hose and apply to roofs and other hard to reach spots, and it will mix at the correct ratio 1:5 (1 part W&F to 5 parts water). This is the recommended mixing ratio. However, that version of the product with the sprayer attachment sells for €60 for 2L. I purchased the 5L (without applicator) for €45. So I am happy to stick with the cheaper and much better value solution.

The problem is now back to how to apply. I checked my Karcher pressure washer detergent mixing ratio, it is 1:18. Too dilute. I would be just washing the product down the gutters. The manufacturer of W&F say most garden sprayers are not able to provide the correct mixing ratio.

If anyone knows of a hose-end mixer/ sprayer that can mix at 1:5, or 23 oz per gallon, I'd love to hear.

Thanks for the recommendation for Mistral, I have just ordered products to treat moss in the lawn, house and van roof. They sound like they will save hours on more traditional ways of treating the issues.
