For most North Eastern US Residents, humidity in the summer is nothing new. With humidity comes mold and mildew and all the other fun things that lurk when extra moisture lingers in that hot air. Indoors we can turn the AC on and rid ourselves of that unpleasant sticky air but outdoors, well our outdoor goods take the brunt of this torture. I am now left with no choice but to show you my front walkway. (insert blushing…now)
I swear I clean this walkway every year and every year it gets worse. So this year I thought I would try something a little unexpected. Tide Multi-Purpose Oxi has over 225 uses! Yes, it’s not just for laundry ladies and gents. You can clean almost anything in you house with this stuff. So I cleaned my front walkway with this clever little product.
Here’s how I did it. I used the recommendation on the back of the box listed as ” Great for Hard Surface Stains”. I think brick goes well under that category. I took the recommended amount of Tide Oxi, measured it out, dumped it in a big bucket and filled it with the recommended amount of water.
I then mixed it around a little to let it dissolve and then dumped it all over the bricks. It recommends to brush it in however if you’re like me, you don’t like kneeling on brick in 90 degree weather with 80% humidity sweating your little heart out. So instead, I let it sit for about 20 minutes to let soak in really good but not enough to dry on the surface. On a side note: I must say the front of my house has never smelled so good.
Now I am ready to Pressure wash it off.
The last year of algea, dirt and grime came off with a squeeze of the trigger on my pressure washer in an instant. I went over the whole area slowly and really concentrated on the mortar in between the bricks. Easy squeezy folks!
I still had one area in the far right corner that hasn’t seen sunlight since it was built in the late 70’s. It was just not getting as clean as I would like, so I applied more Tide Oxi, waited a few more minutes and then pressure washed it off.
Now we’re talking!!!
