    I looked on YT and a lot of folk pressure wash the fence which I can't do because its a latted fence with gaps so I'd get the neighbours gardens wet.

    Some recommend applying a Domestos/water mix so I've done a bit and will see what the effect is tomorrow.

    Anyone done used other methods with success?

    The heavens don't send down pressurised water that can make a mess of finely landscaped/patio gardens.

    That pressurised water will be directed on the fence and all they will get is the spray off it.

    Unless you're really bad at directing your Lance :eek:

    Its occurred to me if I spray at an angle, effectively no gaps, then there'll be very little over spray.

    Soda crystals (the green packet) dissolved in water in a spray bottle, and brush. Leave to soak. Rinse and leave to dry before painting.
