Question by mascconger: how to clean cedar decking?
I have heard many different methods from buying super chemicals to using oxygen bleach. what is a good way to clean cedar decks without hurting them. I have everything that you could find at a home improvement store such as Menards or Home Depot or WalMart as a resource. thanks

Well the chemicals are not going to be harmless. I use a pressure washer with plain water. If I get a tough spot, I’ll spray on some heavy duty soap and leave it set for a while as I do other areas. It will remove dirt, grime, slime, old stains and varnish, and the dead wood making the surface look gray.
