Been using simple cherry but will be giving the roof snot a try next if the price is not too much higher.

Roof Snot is WAY cheaper than Simple Cherry if you do the math. I think 10 pounds of Simple Cherry is about $35 and makes about 20 fivers of house wash mix. That's $1.75 per bucket of mix. Roof Snot is about $80 for 5 gallons, whitch makes 213 fivers at 3oz per bucket. That's $0.32 per bucket of mix. And it is PH neutral, which means it can mix with pretty much anything. It's also pretty much essential if you clean roofs without gutters. Roof Snot is always old to have on your truck.

Roof Snot is unbelievable. I use it for roofs. I add a little Fresh Wash too, so I can use a weaker SH ratio.

Fresh Wash for houses is my surfactant of choice for houses and buildings.

Josh these are two different animals its not really fair to either to compare them the way you are doing.Simple cherry has many more products that work together or have a synergy type effect with sodium hypoclorinate.It has strong bases in it that actually boost the akilinity of sh.The simple cherry does things like soften the water to reduce spotting,rinse aids to be able to get it rinsed quickly from the surface,etc.Those big long words on the packing slip most of them are in the same family of tsp.There is one product in there that used in the food we eat.Now the other product has no cleaning ability at all.Its main function is to make the product its mixed with stay on the surface as long as possibe.Now with that being said it would be valuable to use on surface that are vertical or like steep roofs to make the product hang out there an let it work before rinsed.They both have a place in the truck.

I agree. I've used Simple Cherry, and I LOVE it. I've mentioned on other threads before that I actually prefer it to Roof Snot as a housewash. I was just making a point, since he brought up price. Roof Snot is definitely worth getting. I never leave for work without it.
