The siding on my back deck was so bad. It was disgusting. I didn’t want to go buy another product so I set about to make a cleaning solution from what I already had on hand. I have used vinegar, water and baking soda to unclog drains so I thought why not let it get rid of the mold and mildew on my siding. I made a liquid and used a brush and it seriously came right off. It was so easy. Check out my diy vinyl cleaning solution recipe and get your vinyl clean this summer!
That before and after picture says it all. Am I right? It didn’t require too much work either. So now for the recipe.
DIY Vinyl Siding Cleaner Recipe
- baking soda
- warm water
- Add 2 cups warm water to a container. To that add 1 cup of vinegar. Then carefully sprinkle 1 tbs of baking soda in it. I did this a little bit at a time as it will completely foam up and over if you're not careful.
DIY Vinyl Siding Cleaner recipe Ingredients
I had a small area to do. I used 2 cups of warm water and 1 cup of vinegar. Once this was mixed together I slowly added 1 tbs of baking soda. I did a little bit at a time because when you add baking soda and vinegar then it will foam up and overflow over the container. So do a bit at a time. It’s a great oxidizing recipe to clean your siding. I promise. Rinse this off when you’re done. It’s best to not let the solution dry on the vinyl. So rinse as soon as your done. I loved my results and am so pleased I didn’t have to buy another product or use something harsh.
