How to Clean Vinyl Siding

It's not something you're proud of - your house is a little moldy around the edges. Yup, there's always that side of the house that doesn't get that much sun and the moisture builds up and mold happens. Thankfully there's an easy way to clean it to enjoy a mold free year! Here's how my husband and I went after our mold on our vinyl siding. #CleaningTricks #CurbAppeal #vinylsiding

    I power washed my vinyl siding every other year for 25 years and did use Clorox and water with a stub brush on places that were moldy/dirty. Would still be doing it that way if we still lived in that house. It worked like a charm.

    I have used a gallon of 1/2 water and 1/2 pool clorine Spray it on with a gallon sprayer, let stand for 15 min. and use a hose to wash it off. Your done, all dirt and mold is gone.

    To remove minor mold and tough dirt on my white vinyl siding I add some OxiClean to warm water - works very well. For regular cleaning I mix a solution of good quality liquid automotive Wash & Wax product - cleans AND protects.

      Test a mild OxiClean solution first on a small section - otherwise the automotive liquid washnwax should clean nicely - good luck!
