    Default What to clean greenhouse with?

    Hi guys

    Just planning ahead, I need to give my greenhouse a spring clean, the glass has got a bit of a green colour on it from slight mould/algae

    What product/s do folks use to scrub and clean the glass with?

    Thanks

    To clean glass and polycarbonate I use 50/50 water and bleach, spray it on leave for 10 mins wash it off.

    I clean mine with ***** fluid mixed to the strength it recommends on the tin. I try to pick a sunny day when it will dry off quickly.

    Yup, bleach or J£y£s fluid for me. I tried Citrox and it smelt luverly, but had bad Botrytis the summer after I used it. May have been co incidence, but I went back to the old favourites just in case lol

    If the greenhouse is empty, a power washer is as good as anything for getting in the nooks & crannies.
