I use this every year on our patio to get the green algae off it, that appears over the winter, does a great job of removing it and returning the slabs to a good condition. Just cover the patio with it, leave for 48-72 hours and then either wash away, with a hose or watering can or if you've timed it right let the rain take it away and job done.

Amazon have price matched if you have Prime and don't have a Wilko nearby

I do the same... But with 79p bleach from homebargains.



I use 2 litre thick bleach from Lidl which costs about 89p. Works a treat and despite what people may claim, has no detrimental effect to plants, grass or environment (apparently). Even if it does, then so will this Patio Magic stuff or almost everything else sold for this purpose. Still take precautions with pets though.

Thick bleach is very effective against mould and mildew, but also in getting rid of "black spot" on patios. I use a big cheap 2"/3" paint brush, brush it on and leave for 5 or 10 minutes. Agitate bad areas with a wire brush and then brush the bleach around again and leave for another 5 or 10 minutes. Then jet wash off. Makes an amazing difference. Best to do on a mild and dry day - from my experience ideal conditions are 15-20 degrees and overcast, with no rain.

You can buy purpose made black spot remover, which costs something like £30 to £50 for one tub, but is essentially mainly just thick bleach. It's a con, so just buy bleach for 89p per bottle!

Do you rub it in with a hard brush?


Quite personal but I find that hurts after a while. 🤪

It's worth noting that Patio Magic (and similar products) requires no scrubbing or jetting. Just apply with a garden sprayer.
Also worth noting is that is appears to persist; it seems to keep working for about 18 months before requiring a further application.

I use .99c bleach 5 litres from France!. Used loads of moss and black spot removers, they take time to work (weeks) used bleach ,diluted, in a sprayer. It's effective within an hour. It's what I'll use in future. Not sure if it lasts as long, but it's cheap enough to do more frequently.
Best to scrape away thick moss before starting.

I recently brought this for £9 and it works a treat, slippery green patio all back to nice clean patio without the need of scrubbing.
4% Quidco on Wilko...ordered thanks been price watching it for a few days.
Think it’s great and works, if applied on dry day you can start to see results by next day and then goes on working.Use it every year on block paving and it cleans up without the need to jet wash which removes the sand from between the pavers making them unstable.
I apply with a fine backpack sprayer.
Make sure you use this within 6 months, last two I had burnt a hole in the bottom and leaked everywhere
Hot for the Amazon one if you have prime. £2 c&c from Wilko is ridiculous price. You have to go in store in hope you'll find it if you want to pay only £6.
£2 click and collect? When did this start at Wilko?

That's a joke they should be encouraging internet shoppers to get into the store, as there is a possibility shoppers will buy much more from the store it self.
Nothing stopping you ringing the store from the number shown on the store finder on the website, give them the product number to check if it is in stock, before going.

Thanks, i'll wait until i need it then. As i'd forget and end up having to buy again at full price.

But from amazon
Are you guys not concerned about the wider environmental damage this causes? The product description notes it's harmful to aquatic organisms and dangerous for the environment.

Seems an unnecessary product to use.

No
This is a great price for Patio Magic - heat.

Patio Magic contains around 10% of the active ingredient. You can buy something with around 50% concentration of the active ingredient called BAC 50 on amazon which dilutes down to a far more effective cost efficient option for larger projects or where you need something heavy duty. Patio magic was great for a simple decking or patio refresh (and you have to dilute it too), and this is a great price for it, but I have used the other product far more effectively for a heavy duty roof moss clearance. Clearly it is more powerful and requires greater care but I thought some might find it useful to know. Both products have their own environmental issues to be aware of.

Ultimately if you want to remove moss or fungus then the job is going to have environmental consequences unfortunately. I guess you could try vinegar or something like that but moss is pretty stubborn
How does this go with grass? Also, assuming it's good for basic concrete slabs?
I've tried this stuff and it wasn't great, I tend to use Hypochlorite and use a sprayer to spray the block paving and patio, all the crap bubbles up and you just jet wash off, only problem is, the whole street then stinks of chlorine (swimming pool) its also not nice to breathe in and hurts your eyes so make sure to protect yourself

I'd think a pressure washer is a great alternative.

Doesn't get rid of black spots though.
As many above I had used cheap bleach from Supermarket too. It worked for me - dropped few capfuls at numerous places on my patio in mild rain and scrub it with hard brush. They look brilliantly clean afterwards.

I sprayed my loft with this as had a bad black mold problem. Worked well and lasts 6 months.
I can recommend the pro-kleen simply spray and walk away cleaner. Loads of great reviews on Amazon:

amazon.co.uk/Pro…LGQ

But buy cheaper direct from Pro-kleen at £28.99 for 4x5L bottles delivered:

Is it any good on engine oil ?
The only problem I see is finding a 48-72 hour period with no rain.

Thanks, ordered from amazon.
I tried using bleach last year but my patio was very dirty and it was a lot of effort. Hopefully this is easier.
I use sodium hypochlorite.
Forget this rubbish, get ‘wet and forget’ on Amazon. I was sceptical but it is magic. Spray it on and rub in with a brush when it’s not raining and leave it. You will think it’s crap, forget about it then look in about a month and see that all the green has gone. I put it on last year and even now my sandstone patio has no green and it’s usually covered by now. It is about £30 for 5L but it’s amazing and contains no bleach either I believe.

Agree. Plus my nearest Wilko charges for parking, they wonder why the high street is dying.
I am very tempted to try buy this. Eargerly I bought some thing to help clean up and smarten the area around my house , the product I opted for after doing lots and lots of research was the “wet and forget” from Costco , it cost me around £30 mark which is quite expensive but I didn’t mind as I really wanted an efficient and easy job doing , it was nearly two years ago and my patio , paving area and drive still looks the same. The algae , moss and great growth have not shifted!!
Fact is I’m too lazy and I never got round to applying it.
Might leave it this weekend as storm Dennis could possibly wash it away. Come to think of it... where's the table and chairs gone?
