How to Clean, Prep, and Paint Vinyl Shutters

My 1960s ranch home was looking its age with its maroon shutters and maroon and cream door. It was time to try and modernize this brick house. The first step was taking down the shutters, cleaning them, and then painting them. Here's how I went about it.

First step, hose off the shutters and scrub then with a bristle brush and soapy water.
My final cleaning was with a deglosser.
