Dear Savvy folks: What is your recommendation for either product or percentage combo of bleach with water to clean mildew mold off Vinyl siding? We don't want to bleach the black shutters. Thx, Dee (couldn't find this subject in my searches in archives).

I use about 25% bleach with a garden sprayer. I wet a large area to the point of runoff and let it set for a few minutes and then hose it off. I use it on my black shutters with no ill effects. I have done my eight year old house three times and it shines like new.

i have used tsp. i get it in powder form from the paint store. mix it with water and use your garden sprayer to apply it. because it is coarse it will tear up the pump on your powerwasher, so dont use it that way. just that garden pump-up type sprayer. rinse it good afterward.

let the stuff soak for a while, but dont let it dry on your siding and woodwork. stuff is slick to use.

Good subject I allways just used plane water if I were to use somthing I would try a mild soap first.
Most vinel siding if is ware the rain hits it is rinced off regulary with the rain in those areas are usually not a problem. thare fore the answer is to rince down more often. I am sure others will, have a differant opinion. I am always open to sugestions
