Cleaning Your Outdoor Patio
A patio is the best place to unwind after a hard day of work, or entertain a special group of friends. In a perfect world, your patio would always look smooth, shiny, and attractive. While the fact remains that regular cleaning will always ensure that your patio stays perfect. Here are some ways cleaning your outdoor patio. Knowing bleach and how tough it is, it can be used to remove stains from practically anything. Since pavers are mostly made of concrete, bleach can be a good way to remove stains from them, if used correctly. Diluting the bleach is extremely important if you want to protect the color of your patio or driveway. Mix half a cup of bleach with around 5 cups of water, and add a spoonful of liquid dish soap to it. Spray this solution using a spray bottle on the pavers, and let them soak in the liquid for 15-20 minutes depending upon how dirty the pavers are. For really dirty pavers, you may need to let them soak for a little more time. Scrub the patio pavers with a brush that has nylon bristles.
Rinse off the solution with water, and you can use a garden hose for this purpose. Let your patio pavers air dry, and applaud yourself for a job well done! Or you can use vinegar. Though it does omit a rather strong smell, vinegar is one of the best choices you could make to clean your patio. Since it is non-toxic, you can absolutely use it in an environment that has pets and kids running around, and it is pretty easy to use too.
