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.

    My siding is the exact same color-Getting ready to sell my house so this just might be what I need. Thanks for the idea. Will the run-off hurt the grass?

    Bleach is very harsh. Overspray will kill your grass, bushes, pets, the soil.... birds, ladybugs, frogs. You see my point. Try white vinegar first and a DIY car scrub brush. If you must, hand scrub with very diluted bleach overspray. Also a big plastic sheet to cover any landscaping would be good. Vinegar is still a mild acid! What about simple green? Please always try the least toxic option first.

    This option is made specifically for outdoor use (it's a cleaning agent made by Clorox but it is not straight bleach - I'm not even sure if it has any in it), and I've never had any problems with it hurting our greenery but the white vinegar option definitely sounds like it would work. I just wanted to use the one that would connect to the hose.
