    I dont think ***** needs to be censored unless your actually promoting them and have a connection ?.
    I normally use ***** or an antiseptic wash i get in buyology the name of which has totally left my mind lol, think theres a sword or machette involved.
    Soak everywher with it then like Mal says, pressure wash it and job done.

    Oooo, i see wht you mean now lol, it actually is

    Personally I wouldn't consider either, but more likely to use a less toxic cleaner, if any at all. Hot water usually does the trick

    I use water and elbow grease, or vinegar + baking soda.
    Ammonia is non-toxic for plants and dissolves slugs but I never used it. I think i'm going to buy some this year. (I say that every year.)

    Soap and water and elbow grease. As I don’t have a green house anymore, a poly tunnel, I add some fabric softener to the water which I am told helps to keep the plastic supple.

    I use the pressure washer then give the windows a wipe down with vinegar.
