    I have used Simple Green or Murphy's Oil Soap, warm water, a new bristled brush and a hose. Works every time for me.

      Use Simple Green for everything in the yard - even my 6’ high pvc fence - beautiful and doesn’t need the pressure washer - that takes the finish off!

    How a power washer with soap.

      We used a power washer. Not a great idea because it takes the finish off the vinyl and makes it more likely to attract dirt and mold or moss.

    I use one of those pump bug sprayers. I fill with 1/2 bleach and 1/2 water.......Spray every thing down. I do my deck, my rails and deck furniture......then rinse with hose. Voila! No scrubbing required

    I use Clorox Outdoor Bleach. It doesn't kill plants. I put it in a spray bottle that attaches to my garden hose. Move everything out of the way that could be harmed like cloth covered and/or metal furniture. Do it on a day when it's not windy. Then I just spray and watch all the clean mossy stuff disappear from the vinyl. I usually let it dry so everything is killed. Then I rinse. If it's going to rain in a few days I just leave it. Not only does it get rid of the green stuff it stays away a long time.

    we used Wet it and Forget it. It works great but it will kill your plants be sure to water anything you want to keep before you spray.

    I used 30 second cleaner. Put it on leave for between 30 seconds and 20 minutes depending on the crud build up and rinse off. OK for plants.

    I use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and a cheap orange oxi cleaner from Home Depot and it works great on just about anything. My daughter picked up a white Rubbermaid love seat that she found curb side and brought it home for me. It was all by grey, the eraser and the oxi brought it back like it was brand new, white and shine. I also used it on all the vinyl upholstery in the fishing boat we were redoing and it looked like new also. I hope this helps you, Annie!

    I used a Mr. Clean eraser and a bucket of same water. No cleaner needed.

    Hi Annie, looking back over all your answers this may just confuse you even more. But vinegar is generally speaking a great household cleaner and can be used on so many things. You may find this website interesting.

    Just water and a rag. I have the same type of fence and all I use it as a wet rag. Then I rinse it off with the hose. Comes clean every time. No need to mix vinegar, soap, anything. Just plain water.
