What is Soak n Croak?

The active ingredients of Soak'n'Croak ® and all similar slow release products are known as QAC's (quaternary ammonium compounds). They are all very similar in much the same way as all brands of detergentsl are very similar. The QAC chemicals are not readily absorbed by plants, so most manufacturers of products similar to ours use additives to achieve better absorption. Just wet the surface with a generous amount of Soak 'n' Croak® and forget about it. The moss, lichen etc. will weather away.

How much difference do additives make?

Additives can improve performance by 15-20%. Foaming during application is not a problem when suitable additives are included in the concentrate.

What you should know about Chemicals

There is not a better product on hardware shop shelves which should be regularly purchased by professional cleaners for killing moss, lichen, mould and slime and cleaning roofs, cobblestones, etc.

The reason

The products are not good value for money. Chlorine and Caustic products have been "reinvented" and renamed Unfortunately, these products have some inherent damaging properties which cannot be avoided when used frequently. Chlorine bleaches colours, rusts metals, destroys stitches and ruins clothing instantly. Caustic attacks the mortar in brick and stonework, can remove anodising from aluminium joinery very quickly. Caustic is the main ingredient in oven cleaners.

Weak Products - Diluted too much

Some products (similar to our Soak 'n' Croak ® ) are being sold claiming to be effective for general use at 1 % active ingredient spray mix. We consider this is bad advice as this strength will only do the easy jobs. We know the product works best at 2% active ingredient.

Why Should You Buy "Soak 'n' Croak ® "? WHY PAY MORE FOR A LESSER STRENGTH PRODUCT?

Answers:

1. Because there is no better product available

2. Peace of mind. No property damage

3. Our prices are extremely competitive, and....

4. Environmentally friendly.

We make a 30% concentrate which you can dilute 1-16 water, to make a 2% spray mix.

Competitors make a 10% concentrate diluting 1-4 water, to make a 2% spray mix.

Therefore Soak 'n' Croak ® concentrate produces 3 times the volume of spray mix.

The result is that you will save 50% to 70% when buying 5 litres to 200 litres.

Franchised Commercial Cleaners

Without any encouragement from us, we find some of our regular repeat customers are franchised cleaners for HIRE A HUBBY, "Jim's Mowing" etc.

Professional cleaners avoid "might work" products. They cannot escape the anger of home owners with damaged property.

Artificial Turf

We have had a letter from a Whangarei bowling club thanking us for the very satisfactory result when using Soak'n'Croak ® on their "Green Gage" turf. We have also had repeat orders from the Wellsford Bowling club.

Saw Mill Use

A Kaikoura timber mill is using Soak'n'Croak ® to prevent Sap Stain on freshly sawn timber, we recommend diluting 1 -20 minimum, 1 -30 maximum.

Cafe Use (To combat Sugar Growths in Drains)

Syrups such as Coke, Pepsi etc dripping from dispensers usually generate film forming bacteria which will create a leather like lining in drain pipes which is impossible to remove with any chemicals. You can prevent this by putting a litre of 1 part "Soak'n'Croak ® " to 20 parts water down every sink once a week. (Leave it there, don't rinse it out.) Soak'n'Croak ® is compatible with all normal detergents.

MONUMENTAL Masonry

Ever wondered how to keep gravesite masonry free of grime day in day out?
Soak 'n' Croak® has been purchased for just such job! We are told it works very well to keep the stone free of moss, mould and lichen. When you visit you can spray masonry so it is quite wet then forget the job giving a lasting effect. When you visit the next time, you will see Soak 'n' Croak® continue to work as time goes by.

ASHFELT / TARSEALED

One of our regular customers purchased Soak 'n' Croak for a huge job - tarsealed runway for a provincial airstrip. Used 1:9 to do the job with a sprayboom over a 10,000 sqm (1 x ha) area. Soak 'n' Croak kills germs too so is good for those tarsealed tennis courts that the family play on.

Testimonials

David McCauley, Tauranga

"Hey Cherie, I used Soak 'n' Croak a few months back on my galvinised roof. Didn't initially see any difference and thought maybe it's not going to work. Later I noticed the heavy moss, mould and lichen had amazingly been removed on roof! Looks great; best result we've ever had. Happy to recommend your product to anyone."

Mr Gallocher, Devonport, Auckland

"Hi Cherie, used Soak 'n' Croak on 4 x squabs last week and can't believe the difference! Took away all the mould and dirt and they look brand new!"

A Smith, Hamilton​​

"It is working wonderfully well on my husband's bowling green."

Mr Kelly, Hamilton

"I used your product on half a concrete area and bought another well-known product to test on the other half of the area. After 18 months it is as I suspected, yielding the same results yet the other product is much, much more expensive.....why?"
Mr Dave Collins, Papakura

"I saved a number of azaleas with 'incurable' moss by spraying several times with a weak Soak'n'Croak solution. Brilliant flowering this year. The plants showed absolutely no symptoms of spray damage.

Yes, you can use my testimonial...Cherie. I have found it effective and safe on many plants but the azaleas in particular. I understand moss can be a significant issue with azaleas and normally may be regarded as very difficult to deal with – I found it very easy!Regards and best wishes", Dave Collins
Andrew McLeod of Whangamata

"Used a small remainder of your product my neighbor gave me, and some of another product.

Your product worked extremely well. The other product looks like it was never applied.

I will order online.
Thanks"
