Jean said, “How to Remove grass stain from aluminium siding?”
Grass stains are primarily caused by the green chlorophyll in grass that acts like a dye. Thankfully, these organic stains can be removed if you have the right cleaner. Follow the steps below to clean the green off your siding.
Removing the Stains
You Will Need:
- Enzyme digester
- Isopropyl alcohol
- A cloth
- White vinegar
Steps to Remove the Stains:
- Get an enzyme digester from the pet aisle at your local supermarket that is safe for hard surfaces, such as Nature’s Miracle Hard Floor Cleaner. Follow the instructions on the label of your selected cleaner to remove the stains from your siding.
- If the stains are stubborn, put some isopropyl alcohol on a cloth and wipe the stains off with the cloth.¹
- If the stain persists, try wiping it off with some white vinegar on a cloth. Once the stains are gone, rinse the area thoroughly to remove any residue from the vinegar.²
Additional Tips and Advice
- Always use enzyme cleaner first before trying a chemical cleaner as the chemicals can stop the enzymes from working.
- Do not attempt to remove a grass stain with a cleaner that is alkaline, such as baking soda or ammonia. Alkaline cleaners can cause grass stains to set.²
