I had no intentions of doing a Met Monday. I haven’t morphed anything.
Then I read the first few sentences of Susan of Between Naps on the Porch ‘s Metamorphosis Monday post. About power washing…We will never do it again.
Last summer we tried this product…
This is the trial spot where I just sprayed a little on to test it…Can you see the difference?
See how nice and clean the steps came out?
Our deck is cedar, and we had carefully power washed every year. No matter how careful, the wood gets chewed up.
You get a garden sprayer which is about 20 bucks..
spray it on, leave for about 10 min., no scrubbing, then wash off with a garden hose. Done! So much faster than the power washer, and no noise!
We tried it first on the wood of the gazebo, and it came up like new! It was all blackish before..
Once the new outdoor shower was built, we did the whole deck and porch with it. It took the green off the wood spindles.
You do have to protect your plants…wet any of them that are close prior and wash off immediately. I covered ours with a tarp..
These pics are from last year..too cold here to get the porch ready..
It is about 14 dollars in Lowe’s..Costco had it too, but was all sold out last time.
We used it on the wood railings, shutters, cement, cedar shakes and moldy roof shingles. It did a great job on the vinyl arbor and planters too.
Check it out…( I wish they were paying me to say this, but they aren’t!)
Happy porch preparing..another month to go here!
Go check out the true metamorphs at Susan’s!
