Algon Organic

Organic Formula

Algon Organic Path & Patio Cleaner is pretty basic. We've no issues with the product's somewhat basic formula though.

Of course, acetic acid, the product's main active ingredient, makes the formula somewhat acidic, so we wouldn't recommend using this liquid solution around children and pets.

Other than that, the formula's 100% organic, so you shouldn't have any health/safety concerns. As long as you let the solution dry, you won't have to worry about kids, pets, even wildlife.

You can dilute the 2.5-litre bottle's contents with water, creating 10 litres worth of cleaning solution. That should be enough to cover ~60-70 square metres. You won't have to rinse the solution. You won't have to scrub it. Apply the product and walk away, its formula will do the rest.

We don't necessarily care for the product's smell though. It is strong and vinegary, which isn't something we like these cleaners to smell like.

We do, however, like the bottle. Its handle is large and grippy. The cap is easy to remove and easy to put back on. Plus, the bright neon plastic makes the bottle easy to recognise.

To sum everything up, Algon Organic Path & Patio Cleaner does the job and that's enough considering how affordable this organic patio cleaner is. Moreover, the results will last for 9+ months.

What Is a Patio Cleaner?

Though dubbed patio cleaners, these products do much more than that.

First and foremost, these cleaners can be applied to so many different places and surfaces, including but not limited to different paths, driveways, sheds, boats, motor homes, greenhouses, caravans, sometimes different tools/instruments, asphalt, concrete, astroturf, brick pavers, aluminium cladding, awnings, composite decking, wooden decks, fibreglass, various upholstery items, you name the place/surface.

Apart from that, these products often disinfect the surface too, not only removing mould, mildew, moss, green algae, lichen, etc but also killing different viruses and bacteria. More often than not, you can use these cleaners pretty much anywhere because the formulas behind these products are normally biodegradable, non-caustic, non-toxic, and bleach-free.

Other than that, pay attention to the bottle's volume and how much solution you'll be able to produce when you mix the contents with water.

You shouldn't use these patio cleaner products to clean the car's delicate parts though. That's where engine degreasers and fuel injector cleaners prove much more suitable.
