Roof Cleaner

What is a good cleaner to use on my ACE roof. Normal car soap doesnít clean the roof very good.

I just use a cleaner with bleach. Wet the roof, spray it on, scrub with a broom, wash it off.

Simple green also works well.

IIRC they recommend a mild soap such as Dawn, Spic Span, Simple Green & a medium bristle brush.
Personally I used SG concentrate mix per instructions in a 1 gallon sprayer, sprayed roof, let soak for 10-15 minutes then scrubbed & rinsed throughly. I also wouldn't use bleach or any product containing bleach.

Might want to pass those concerns on to the roof material manufacturer:

Time for me to tout more ryobi stuff.
I haven't used it on the roof but I've used it on enough stuff to give a review.
This would be great for a roof and fenderwell and general washing.
$85, don't say no.

Well isn't that special. A cute little battery powered pressure washer. If you want one get it from HomeDepot for $6 less and free shipping. Avoid the Ebay markup and hassle.
