Green shutters and red rain

Post by dream.island » May 3rd, 2019, 3:45 pm

Any hints on how to clean shutters after the red rain?

Not sure if using a floor type soap cleaner will just smear them.

Try a high pressure hose or a jet-washer on a low/medium setting to avoid blasting the paint off - worked for me

If you have one a jet wash, that's what I always used.

I have also seen shutter cleaning aids which are like a two/three pronged fork with sponge/soft bristles on, but a cheep if you can find a cheep power washer is much easier and a whole lot faster.

I've been cleaning shutters, a few day, with a €2.36 brush from Pallisers. Works well.

Forgot one shutter which I decided to give a dunk in the swimming pool. That worked well too! :supz:
