Jeyes – Job Done!

 

P1020586

Warning!
This post aint pretty.

P1020359

Oh the shame!
The humiliation!
The so called ‘Tidy Garden’ path has algae.


P1020362

How did this happen?
I’ve let things slip.

P1020363

Fear not my pretties.
Help was at hand.

P1020364

I used Jeyes Patio Power (a 2ltr container covers 99 m2 ). This one needs diluting and is safe to use in a pressure washer if you wish. Great to use on all your outdoor hard surfaces like patios, decking, paths & driveways.

 

But you can get ready mixed versions (a trial version of 500ml covers 3.8m2)

Anyway, I diluted 10 parts water to 1 part Jeyes in an old watering can, doused the pathways & left them to dry.

Et Voila!
Oh the effort….Not!
Zilch scrubbing or brushing required.
Simply pour, sit back with a tequila sunrise in one hand & a Nobbly Bobbly (other ice lollies are available) in the other and relax (wash your hands first!)

Jeyes Fluid Outdoor Cleaner 300ml

Of course there’s the ol’ faithful, Jeyes Fluid in a tin version too.

Great for a multitude of outdoor cleaning & disinfecting tasks, from cleaning floors, to kennels, bins, and greenhouses to refreshing waterbutts.

Did someone mention ‘greenhouses’?
Gotta dash…….

Love it when you call us pretty! Amazing difference by just pouring it on, does it dust and wash windows?

The fact that you have algae growing on your walkway is a testament to how much rain you get! Wow! Glad it was an easy job. :o)

I had no idea they made such a thing! I have a well, so I think I would be too afraid to use chemicals anywhere outside like that, but that does look so much easier than scrubbing or power washing (especially if you really are lounging with a drink in one hand while this is all going on)!
