Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to tell you about removing stains, from your vinyl siding. If you can get a pressure washer, borrow one from a friend, or if you have one, or you can rent one, that's always a good idea, because you can do your whole house with a pressure washer, and those things really work. If you want to make something at home, you can use any number of these things. You can try mixing baking soda with dishwashing detergent, and make a paste. That's really good to let it sit on a stain, and really cook the stain out, before you rinse it off. You may want to scrub it a little bit first, but this is a good little paste for your stain remover. You may want to try a splash of bleach, into a bucket of water. Bleach is obviously, a really good stain remover, but you only want to use it on white or off white vinyl siding. You can use laundry detergent and water. I think it's a half a cup of laundry detergent, and six gallons of water, to make a solution to put into your water sprayer. Let something like that sit on your house for about twenty minutes, before you rinse it off. Just spray it on there, let it sit for twenty minutes, and I would say give it some scrubs, if you have really deep stains, and then rinse it off with water. If you're close to a hardware store, you can pick up some house wash. This can also be poured into the sprayer, and applied to your house. Also, let that sit for about twenty minutes, before you rinse it off. I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and that is a little bit about removing stains from vinyl siding.
