The Number One Question We Are Always Asked

Here at Wet & Forget we have a great range of products to help service all your home cleaning needs. However, you may have noticed that we have 2 products that seem to do the exact same thing; Wet & Forget 5L Concentrate and Rapid Application 2L Hose-End. You would be right, they do both kill and remove moss, mould, lichen and algae – and that has probably got you thinking to yourself

“Can I use my Wet & Forget 5L in my Rapid Application bottle?”

This is the question we hear on the phone often and the answer we must give is “No, you can’t!”These products are not interchangeable! There are a couple of reasons for this:

  1. They are different concentrations of the active ingredient
    • This means that Wet & Forget 5L needs to be diluted at a different rate to the Rapid Application.
    1. The Rapid Application bottle has a pre-set, unchangeable dilution rate
      • Because these two products need to be diluted at a different rate, if you were to put Wet & Forget 5L into the Rapid Application bottle, it would be applied at the wrong dilution rate and would not work!

      Rapid Application does the same job, takes the same amount of time to work and covers the same area (minimum of 100sqm!) as the Wet & Forget 5L does. The reason that it comes in a 2L instead of a 5L is to make it easier for you! It is nice and light to carry and its quick and easy to set up and apply.

      Hi Brian, thanks for your comment. It is best to use a separate sprayer when treating edible plants and vegetables from the one you use to spray chemical treatments – this will completely avoid any cross-contamination risks!

      What can I use to clean my knapsack or neutralise the poison of wet and forget, so I can use the same knapsack to spray fertiliser on my veggies ??

      Hi Linda! Thanks for your comment. The Wet & Forget Concentrate and the Rapid Application Hose-End do not have an expiry date…they have an unlimited shelf-life! It is fine to use it all up before you need to worry about buying any more.

      Hi – I’ve used Wet & Forget for many years & it’s great – beyond great as it is completely safe! I have 1 older bottle of it in my shed which is at least 5 years old so my question is: Does the 5 litre concentrate have an expiry date or expiry life? Happy to buy a new lot… no sense in using the old concentrate if it may have expired in potency. I look forward to your answer.
