A roof guy I know uses muriatic acid to kill roof moss, followed by zinc or galvanized metal strips for maintenance.  Does anyone have experience or an opinion regarding muriatic acid for this purpose?  Thanks.

No New Posts The Bottom Of A Shaving Cream Can ? (Preview)
Anyone ever notice how many shaves you can get when a shaving cream can is almost empty of air ?  The stuff at the bottom works great, and shaves much faster. It is more like a cream then a foam. So what does this have to do with cleaning roofs ?????
