Hi I'm Tim Gipson and I'm going to talk to you about power washing soap for vinyl siding. Now there are specially formulated soaps that you can use in your power washer that you can get at any hardware or home improvement store but also you can use just any kind of standard dish liquid and then also if you have mold or mildew problems on your siding you can also use bleach. Now one good thing about using a power washer you have a reservoir like this, the power washer actually dilutes it and whenever you use bleach to take care of your mold and mildew problems you want to dilute it one part bleach to four parts water and also where your dish washing liquid is ultra concentrated in most of the formulations that you buy now it is a good idea to go ahead and dilute that down with some water maybe one to ten so you don't have any oversudsing while you are cleaning but for most practical purposes you can buy a specialty soap. It is probably going to be a little bit more expensive doing it that way but a more cost effective way is just use your standard dish washing liquid and your bleach that you already have around the house. I'm Tim Gipson with what to use for power washer soap.
