Wet and Forget did not pass our tests as an effective cleaning agent. Based on their disclaimers and the ineffectiveness of their product, we simply cannot recommend it as an acceptable cleaning solution. Attempting to use this product will leave you with less money, and with the same green algae as before.
Wet and Forget Overview
Wet and Forget is an entry-level product you can find at your local hardware store. Their advertising promises effortless application with no scrubbing required – you simply spray it and forget. What this company doesn’t mention often is the six-month waiting period required to see any results. Don’t just take our word for it, they state it on their website:
“It depends on the intensity of the contamination… Otherwise, it may take 2-3 months to see improvement. Your concrete may turn reddish-brown when Wet & Forget is applied… In the very worst-case scenario, where contamination is extreme, it may take 6-12 months to work.” (Askwetandforget.com, 2019)
Imagine standing in the shower and having soap sprayed on you, then rinsing off. That’s essentially what this product does. Without any pressure or scrubbing, you are not going to see the results you’re looking for. If you want a quick and easy solution to the dirt and grime embedded into your exterior surfaces, this is not the product for you.
One promise made by Wet and Forget is the ease of application – if you pay top dollar for their fragile “ready to use” bottle. If you want to save money and mix it yourself, you can do so using a measuring cup, buying the recommended backpack sprayer, and a pair of rubber gloves so the chemicals don’t get on your skin. What was once a $30+ dollar of “easy-to use” cleanser has turned into a $100 headache.
