Jeyes Fluid 5 Litre
Jeyes Fluid is universally acknowledged to be one of the most flexible commodities available to everyone involved in horticulture. Its success is based upon its ability to be used for an amazing variety of tasks; from cleaning bird feeders – to ensure that they remain free of trichomonosis and Avian Flu - to hygienically freshening up garden furniture.
Jeyes fluid is also used to disinfect tarmac, hard surfaces, patios and driveways supporting mould and algae, and is great in combination with a pressure washer.
Its universal suitability means that Jeyes Fluid can be safely used in many common garden situations i.e. cleaning out water butts, ridding greenhouses of the variety of diseases that become a genuine problem during the growing season, or simply cleaning drains. Jeyes Fluid can also be used to disinfect areas after livestock and animals.
As a disinfectant, Jeyes Fluid has been a familiar site in many gardens and allotments since 1877, when it was bought to us by the same company that created other trusted and familiar brands such as Palmolive, Carex, Imperial Leather, and Ajax.

Pour neat into outdoor drains, making sure to rinse thoroughly.
Use as frequent as necessary, especially during hot spells.
Concrete Paths and Patios:
Dilute 150ml Jeyes Fluid to every 5 litres of water, applying sufficient solution to thoroughly wet the affected surfaces. Allow 30 minutes for Jeyes Fluid to work and then rinse off with water and scrub with brush. For light coloured aggregate, dilute 50ml product with 5 litres of water, in order to avoid staining.
Dilute 125ml Jeyes Fluid to 5 litres of water in a watering can, then apply sufficient solution to thoroughly wet the affected surfaces. Firstly, make sure to check a small area for softening.
