It's been a long summer and if you have an outdoor patio made of stone, you know it had a lot of foot traffic. So, how do you give it that deep, down clean in a natural way? All it takes is a few on-hand ingredients and some elbow grease.

Step 1: Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a bucket or bowl of warm water (approximately 1 gallon of water).

Step 2: Add a few drops of dish soap. Mix all ingredients together.

Step 3: Using a heavy duty soft bristle brush, pour small amounts of the mixture onto various areas of the stone patio, and begin scrubbing in circular motions.

Step 4: Let your wet stone patio dry naturally to reveal a much cleaner patio.

    God love all of you with good knees! Go buy a long handled patio brush at the Home Dept. I think I paid less than $10.00 and it’s more than worth it.

      Hi Yvonne. The one I invested in has extremely tough and very sturdy bristles and will last through many, many years. Better to make a small investment and to not have to continually replace.
