Wet & Forget User Reviews


The Outdoor cleaner is the ideal environment friendly cleaning solution that works on your house’s outdoor surfaces which are always vulnerable to moss, mildew, algae, lichen and mold growth.

While other solutions require harsh scrubbing and continuous use, Wet and Forget Outdoor fights tough mold growths on its own without any pressure washing and scrubbing, simply washed away by wind and rain. All you need to do is spray and leave. Now that’s a brilliant time saving and water conserving method.

You don’t need to worry about tile discoloration since Wet & Forget cleaners are bleach free, non caustic and non acidic. With a ph of 8, it is way more neutral than other cleaning solutions available commercially. This makes it extremely safe to use on any and every surface whether its your roof, driveway, deck, lawn, storage unit or any other place you can possible think of.

It clears up moss from affected areas by turning it brown, ultimately detaching it from the surface, which is then washed away by wind or rain. To get rid of lichen, use one part Wet & Forget Outdoor and five parts water,  spray twice with a 15 minute interval and leave it to work. For best results, don’t use on a sunny day since that speeds up evaporation.

Designed to clean surfaces with high elevations and hard to reach areas, Wet and Forget Hose End is built with a sniper nozzle that can spray up to 30 ft. Impressive, no? Since you can’t possibly be on the lookout for algae/moss/lichen growth on your roof tops, second story sidings and other areas, this is where the Hose end comes in handy.

The Outdoor Rapid Hose End comes with two settings: Flat Fan and Jet Setting. While the flat fan setting is appropriate for general use and wide surfaces on ground level, whereas the Jet setting allows you to attack mold mildew growth at a distance and height, which isn’t possible with any other cleaner.

Simply attach the nozzle to your garden hose and select your desired setting. When you select ON from the dial, the solution mixes with water and dispenses it out. If you simply need water to flow out from the nozzle, select the WATER setting on the dial.

Wet & Forget Hose End stain remover gives best results when applied on a dry day and left to sit for at least 6-7 hours. While the standard size can cover up to 2000 sq.ft, spraying in windy weather will definitely affect the coverage adversely, also letting the solution spread on to plants and damaging them.
