Re: Cleaning Garden Furniture/ where to purchase the AMMONIA

Yes I read the last thread just posted here and maybe such strong chemicals are not for me. A high pressure hose is a good idea thanks but also not really for me, its on a balcony for example!

It's just to clean off the green stains that occur on wood over time on one item.
By 'green stuff' do you mean algae or moss?

If so, there are products specifically designed to do that. One is Mellerud, available at the Coop B/H (and elsewhere):

Or there is a Landi Capito product which is less expensive:

But no matter what you use you still need to wash the furniture down, which when on a balcony means being careful about dripping over onto your neighbor.

For that reason, I find power washing the best solution. It's only water, not chemicals that might harm your neighbour's property. (Or pets!) Chat with your neighbors about finding a way to minimise disturbance to them.

By the way, I have a low-end Karcher power washer that isn't all that powerful. I use it for cleaning garden furniture and anything else where I need more control.

Good luck with the project.
