Many homes in Cheney have shrubs and other plants adjacent to the outer wall. Some homeowners worry using chemical-based sprays to clean the siding will hurt the plants. We completely get the concern, which is why we came up with a list of four eco-friendly vinyl siding cleaners. Some of these cleaners are brand-name products. We’re simply recommending what works and aren’t endorsing them in any way.
Top Eco-Friendly Vinyl Siding Cleaners
White vinegar is a common ingredient in homemade cleaning sprays for siding and windows. Some people are concerned that vinegar’s high acidity will erode the plants’ health. Vinegar’s acidic level is actually healthy since it naturally adjusts soil pH levels.
2. Simple Green
Simple Green is a multi-purpose cleaner and degreaser. The product utilizes a non-toxic and biodegradable formula that eliminates the most stubborn of stains.
3. Clorox Outdoor Bleach
According to Clorox’s official statement, the formula won’t harm grass and plants. Users are advised, though, to give plants a quick and light rinse with a hose if it comes into direct contact with the bleach.
4. Scotts Outdoor Cleaner with OxiClean
The formula creates a foam that eliminates dirt, mildew, and algae on contact. It’s safe for plants and also doesn’t harm fabrics. The mixture can also be used with power washers.
Regardless of the cleaner of choice, the siding should be wiped dry right away using a soft microfiber towel or a soft-bristled brush.
