vinegar

Has anyone ever used vinegar when pressure washing houses? Seems like a safe alternative to bleach. Thanks for any advice.

One of my customers uses vinegar to kill weeds in a swale. I'm not sure I would chance using it on a home. Outdoor clorox is fairly cheap and n worries about killing plants/grass.

That is my concern. Where can you get "outdoor" Clorox? I'm brand new at anything other than spraying off a sidewalk here or there.

"outdoor clorox" is still garbage. Find a chemical supplier in your area and order some 12.5% sodium hypo. Works much better. I use about 1.5g of SH, 1 1/2 scoops of simple cherry and about 8oz of F-13 in a 5g bucket.
