Cheap Deck Cleaner

I just sent this recipe to a friend and thought others might benefit from it as well. 

Deck Cleaner is incredibly expensive, but it's very easy to make yourself.
  • 256 oz Water (4 quarts or about 4L)
  • 64 oz Bleach (the cheap stuff from Walmart)
  • 2/3 cup of liquid dish detergent (cheap stuff from Walmart)
  • 1 cup of TSP (any paint shop, walmart, kent, etc)
Give it a good mix ... I find warm/hot water helps the TSP dissolve. I like to use one of these on my drill.

Spray it on (not direct sunlight, it'll dry too quickly. Early morning or evening is best), let it sit for 10 min and then scrub with deck brush. Spray off with hose. 

It has bleach in it, so watch out for siding or anything you don't want to get discolored (same as normal deck cleaner) 

Pennies a glass.
