A positive comment, I’m so used to negative comments I’m actually shocked! Wow thank you very much! Glad to have helped at least one other person other than myself.

I do the same....pour Swafega into reservoir of chain pig and off you go ...a couple of minutes later a lovely clean bicycle chain...with no grit...
An alternative way to clean a chain ...put Swafega on two nail brushes, sandwich bike chain between the nail brushes... grease and grit all gone...I found that tip on GCN

What spray?
Is it good for cleaning car oil from block paving?

Ive been using this with some success
screwfix.com/p/s…817

Put it on neat and leave for a few hours, ideally let the rain wash it away or blast it with a pressure washe

Green Gone Super Concentrate from Wilko is excellent.
I just use thin bleach . 29p for two litres. Clears all the algae etc in about half an hour.

No information about safety to animals or aquatics which is a deal breaker for me.

Sorry should have been more specific- just noticed comments!
Have been using this for a few years now and find it excellent. Previous to using this I tried numerous patio cleaners and pressure washed each year but since using the spray and leave not pressure washed at all glad to say!! It takes time to work when first used in fact I thought it wasn't working but after a while patio started to get brighter - stays clean all year round now as long as I spray every 6months wouldn't be without it!

Thanks. There is another leave on product called Patio Magic on Amazon on a deal for £16 too. I think I'm going to look into the leave on stuff. Cheers.
Does take time to establish mind got to be patient-I sent my first batch back as ideal world gave money back if not happy - but I soon reordered when I realised it was working my back patio was absolutely ingrained black as the stones have been down for at least 25 years but now they are bright no black mould -
I also spray my wooden furniture which I don't cover over winter my extension roof my fences - think it's great stuff ha ha I ain't got shares in the company promise!

I just fill a watering can with a spray head. Wet area, leave for half an hour or so, then a quick sweep over with a stiff broom, then hose clean.

Thanks,What ratio of bleach do you use to water and do you find that the bleach keeps the weeds away for a while from the cracks between slabs/bricks?

I dont dilute at all as its thin bleach so already watered down. 35p for 2L at tesco so use a couple for about 20m2. Does nothing for weeds unfortunately (that I have noticed anyway but maybe kills them a bit).

at about 85p for 5L, its a lot cheaper than this swarfega and does the job well.
