Wet & Forget is a manufacturer, marketer, and online retailer of household cleaning products. It was founded in New Zealand in 1976, and opened its first North American office in 2005. The company also does business in the United Kingdom, Australia, and France.[1]

United States[edit]


Wet & Forget Outdoor

This product is an EPA registered moss, mold, mildew, and algae stain remover.[2] Its active ingredient is alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride.[3] Wet & Forget Outdoor is used to rid surfaces from gravestones to asphalt shingles to granite memorials of moss and mold growth.[4][5][6][7] It is biodegradable and has a pH of 8.0.[8][9] It is sold as a concentrate, with instructions to dilute 1 part Wet & Forget Outdoor to 5 parts water.[10] The product is designed to be applied to a dry surface with a garden sprayer. The biological growth must be saturated with the diluted product, then left to dry.[10] Wet & Forget Outdoor begins to break down the growth while drying, and the wind and rain remove the growth once it's dead.[10]

Wet & Forget Outdoor Ready-To-Use

A ready-to-use version of the original Wet & Forget Outdoor, this product is sold diluted and with an attached sprayer. Marketed as the ideal product for smaller moss and mold removal projects, one unit will provide coverage of 60–180 square feet. It is safe around plants and landscaping, and has an unlimited shelf life. Its active ingredients are water, benzyl ammonium chloride, and ethanol.[11] Like the original Wet & Forget Outdoor, it works with the wind and the rain to remove growth off outdoor surfaces.

Wet & Forget Indoor

Wet & Forget Indoor is a home disinfectant cleaner and deodorizer that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew. Its active ingredients are quaternary ammonium chloride compounds, namely octyl decyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (.025%), dioctyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (.010%), didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (.015%), and alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (.034%).[12] Its directions for use instruct one to "spray 6-8 inches from the surface, until surfaces are thoroughly wet. Do not breathe spray. Treated surfaces must remain wet for 10 minutes. Wipe dry with a clean cloth, sponge or mop or allow to air dry."[13]

Wet & Forget Shower

Introduced to stores throughout the United States in September 2012, Wet & Forget Shower is a weekly no-scrub shower cleaner.[14] Its active ingredients are "two non-aggressive, proprietary non-ionic and cationic surfactants."[15] It cleans surface mold and mildew stains and cleans and prevents the build-up of soap scum, grime, and body oils on surfaces including ceramic, natural stone, chrome, brass, bronze, nickel, copper, acrylic, rubber, vinyl, stainless steel, granite, slate, glass tiles, cultured marble and fiberglass. It is not recommended for use on natural marble.[15] It's suggested to spray Wet & Forget Shower on the surfaces in the shower after showering, then to simply rinse those surfaces off before or during the next shower.[16]

Miss Muffet's Revenge

Miss Muffet's Revenge is an EPA registered spider killer.[17] Its active ingredient is bifenthrin, and is registered for use as a long residual term spider control and barrier. It works to kill spiders already inside and around the house while also providing a perimeter barrier against those from outside. One application keeps spiders away for up to 12 months, and the product's built-in sprayer can spray up to 10 feet.[18] For indoor spider control it is recommended to "apply a 4" band along the interior of [the] home where spiders are a recurring problem...until slightly wet without soaking."[19] For outdoor application, a 12" band around the exterior perimeter of the home is recommended. [19]


Wet & Forget products are sold in the U.S. by several major retailers, including Costco, Menards, Lowe's, Walmart, Meijer and Home Depot.[20] Ace Hardware, Do It Best, and True Value also retail Wet & Forget products in hardware stores throughout the country.[20] The company also directly retails products to consumers via their website.[21] Wet & Forget products are also retailed over Amazon, and Wet & Forget Outdoor is Amazon's best selling product in moss control.[22]
