Effortlessly Refresh Your Driveway with Effective Cleaning Solutions

Driveways, a critical aspect of your home’s first impression, often accumulate moss, dirt, and stains over time. While it might seem like a daunting task, driveway cleaning does not have to amount to an uphill battle. Thanks to innovative approaches such as Soft Washing, bringing your driveway back to life becomes a manageable task for every homeowner.

What is soft washing?

Not everybody has heard of soft washing - but once you do, you’ll wish you’d known about it sooner! Soft washing is a gentle but highly effective cleaning method that uses less pressure than traditional pressure washing, preventing damage to delicate surfaces. It involves the use of eco-friendly Soft Wash Chemicals that effectively break down moss, mildew, and other organic growth without causing any harm to the surrounding area.

Why soft washing is an excellent option for driveways

In addition to being gentle on surfaces, soft washing can produce results that last four to six times longer than standard pressure washing. It also consumes less water and can clean large areas quickly and efficiently. Be it stains or natural green growth, the soft washing process could be your answer.

Tools and solutions for driveway cleaning:

Now that we've established the effectiveness of SoftWashing in cleaning driveways, let’s find out the tools and substances you'll need to get the job done:

1. Soft Washing Equipment: High-quality equipment including a soft wash sprayer and soft wash nozzle are key to ensuring an evenly spread and accurate application of the cleaning solution.

2. Grenade Driveway Oil Stain Remover: For those tricky oil stains that refuse to budge, this stain remover is a potent, professional-grade solution. It’s designed to tackle and dissolve oil stains effectively from your driveway.

3. Moss Guard Pro: Prevent the massive regrowth of moss and algae on your driveway surface with Moss Guard Pro. This green growth inhibitor ensures a longer-lasting clean.

Tips on how to conduct soft washing on your driveway:

Before getting started, remember always to wear appropriate safety gear, including gloves and eye protection. After preparing your soft washing solution according to the recommended Sodium Hypochlorite Mixing Ratio, begin applying it to your driveway using your soft wash sprayer.

Allow the solution some time to react and break down the grime before rinsing it off gently. For difficult stains, you may need to repeat the process. Once satisfied, apply your green growth inhibitor to prevent the fast return of moss and algae.

The Payoff

Imagine stepping outside to a visually appealing, clean driveway that enhances not only your property's exterior beauty but also its overall worth. Soft washing not only cleans your driveway but it also offers long-lasting protection against the rapid regrowth of common eyesores. So why wait? Rejuvenate your driveway with soft washing today!

Soft Wash Calculator App

Now you can say I've got an app for that!


Available NOW Click Here To Download

Softwashing calculator is an indispensable tool for juggling complicated chemical mixes. It helps reduce wastage and keeps operating costs down by giving accurate proportions

If you are having difficulty getting your head around the maths, trying to work out what percentage of softwash you need, how much chemical, surfactant and water to add, then this is the App for you.



The Soft Wash Calculator App allows you to work out your soft wash recipe by telling you exactly how much chemical, how much water and how much surfactant to add to get the desired soft wash recipe.
It doesn't stop there!.
- It can also remix your leftover softwash to a new stronger or weaker recipe.
- all controls in one place for see at a glance operation
- ease of input via pre-loaded dials. no more calculator style typing
- instantly responds to changes of complex combinations
- works in both Litres and US Gallons
- tested for Protan and Deutan colourblind users
- links to SoftwashingUK website

Take this scenario
You started with a 1% soft wash recipe of 50 gal (or litres)  for a deck clean and you’re left with 13 gallons.

You get a call from a prospective customer to clean their roof. Past experience tells you a 4% soft wash recipe is needed, but what about your leftover mix at 1%?.

Do you waste time and effort driving back to base to transfer into a standby tank?
You could consider the 13 gal as just water, top up the tank and start again.  
But that’s throwing away the value of the mix and raising your overhead.

Soft Wash Calculator App to the rescue.

You get to the new job and it requires 100 gal / litres.
Switch into remix mode , confirming the 13 gal already in the tank
Move the dials to your new recipe and the app immediately updates the different amounts to add in front of your eyes including the correct amount of extra surfactant.

You now have a 100 gal / litres tank of 4% soft wash recipe ready for your roof clean job!

Not forgetting you’ve saved money too, all without stress and uncertainty . Don’t underestimate what confident calmness has on your customer putting out referrals.

The same applies if you have a 4% recipe left in your tank and you need to dilute it down to 2%. Again the app will tell you how.

Softwashing calculator will also work for any chemical recipe. For instance you can use it for Sodium Hypochlorite, Bleach, Biocide , TFR traffic film remover and degreaser. Even the mathematically-challenged rocket scientist can top up their booster tanks to new fuel mixes after launch delays caused by changing weather conditions.

Using this app you will know exactly what chemical strength to put on any surface giving you the confidence and the knowledge of a professional soft washer and you’ll save money as well.

So if you have little knowledge of how to mix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you have little knowledge of how to remix a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.
If you want to save money when mixing a soft wash recipe then this app is for you.

This app is also backward compatible to devices running iOS7. We've done this so you can re-purpose an old iPhone 4 or iPod Touch 5  for what could be hazardous work environments. Just toss one in your cleaning van's toolkit.

Once you learn the methods and procedures of how to apply the soft wash to the different surfaces that need cleaning you’ll be unstoppable!

The app also has  a guide to what percentage for what surface. And if you are the lucky owner of a Clever Injector it will remind you the correct setting for the job.
However you should always consider and risk assess what soft wash recipe you need to clean the surface.

** A major iOS code-base change may require a re-purchase. The appiverse at the time will confirm our promise that we won't do so unless the necessity is apparent.
