Applying Wet & Forget
Wet & Forget is the easiest way to eliminate green and black growths from the outside of your home. Not exactly sure how to apply Wet & Forget Moss, Mold, Mildew And Algae Stain Remover to outdoor surfaces? Wet & Forget is extremely easy and only takes a few simple steps, we’ll start with the mixing instructions.
Wet & Forget’s mixing ratio is 1 part Wet & Forget to 5 parts water. For a 1-Gallon sized garden pump sprayer, pour 20 oz (2.5 cups) of Wet & Forget into your sprayer. Next, fill the sprayer with water to the 1-Gallon marker and you’re ready to go. If you have a larger sprayer you can multiply the mix. For example, a 2-Gallon sprayer would require 40 oz (5 cups) of Wet & Forget, filled with water to the 2-gallon mark.

How To Apply Wet & Forget
Wet & Forget is applied with a garden pump sprayer. After you’ve mixed with water, you’re almost ready to get started. You just want to make sure of a few things before spraying:
- First, make sure you are applying to a dry surface and there’s no rain in the forecast for 5-6 hours after applying Wet & Forget. For a good application, you want to thoroughly saturate the surface and leave it to slowly dry on it’s own.
- Second, if it’s a scorcher and the sun is baking on the surface, it’s not a good day to apply as your application will evaporate too quickly.
- The third and final step is to make sure you’re applying to an organic growth- either moss, mold, mildew, algae or lichen. Wet & Forget will not remove rust stains or dirt. Most growths require one good heavy application of Wet & Forget where as lichen requires a second application 15 minutes after the first. Lichen is a special growth that opens up and exposes it’s root system after the first application, so a second spray down is very important.
Spend time with friends and family, binge watch every episode of your favorite show on Netflix, or try doing one of our world famous DIY projects. The surfaces you’ve applied to are most likely going to get rainfall so there’s nothing left to do but have some patience and wait on the rain to do the hard work for you. No time to wait? In a bit of a hurry to get the surface clean? Give Wet & Forget a week or two to start working, then you can grab your water hose and give it a good rinsing. You can even reach for the scrub brush and give Mother Nature a little nudge.
