Last summer we did what any normal new house buyers would do. We bought a super fixer upper, then we completely ignored the interior of our house and built a deck…(because that is normal) It actually felt totally natural at the time. I fell in LOVE with this house mostly because of the yard, and all the trees, which is just not a guarantee here in the desert. So, creating a family space in the backyard was a number one priority to me. (Can you see why?)
It was perfect timing when Scotts®Plus OxiClean™ Outdoor Cleaner reached out to see if we had any outdoor cleaning projects… cuz as you can see by these pictures… we most certainly did! Here is one side of our deck that we call our lounge…
My kids LOVE to play around the little table, so we had dried on milk spills among the dirt!
Dust all over the deck boards (that already needs to be re-stained apparently!)
Our little dining table was COVERED with dirt about an inch thick!
In fact the table was actually begging to be cleaned!
Okay let’s get this party started!!!
We just screwed the spray can to our hose and sprayed down all the surfaces that needed cleaning and added a little extra scrubbing on the really dirty things! Our deck is right above our lawn, but Scotts Plus is tough on stains and safe to use around grass and plants, which is good because we REALLY needed to clean it well. But I definitely wanted my plants not to die from the cleaners.
Also, unlike chlorine bleach Scotts®Plus OxiClean™ Outdoor Cleaner will not harm fabrics and will clean concrete, wood, siding, patio furniture and more!!
Lifts dirt and wipes out stains from moss, mold, mildew and algae!
We got the whole family involved, because my girls LOVE to scrub stuff and this cleaner suds up so well they were having the time of their lives!
And the after, which I can tell you we’ve been using everyday that the weather will cooperate with us.
