Rated 5 out of 5Â by Praetorian The name says it all - 30-second!!
My wife found this on a pop-up camper forum for cleaning canvas and thought I should try on the deck. The dirt/mold DISAPPEARED on the deck in less than 30 seconds. I previously had scrubbed with straight bleach in desperation with only marginal results. We used it on canvas too. Great product. NO scrubbing required. Spray, blink your eyes, wash off. This does contain TSP, so it will dull paint finishes some (perfect for prep of new coat of finish/paint). Picture shows (foreground) scrubbed with bleach, (center) untouched, (distant) 1 minute after applying this product. Wow! Second picture - finished result after rinsing.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LosRubios Great cleaner for a redwood deck restoration project
When we installed our redwood deck, we treated it with waterseal however after 3-4 years with no subsequent re-treatment, the timber had greyed so we set about refinishing the deck a couple of weeks ago. The first stage involved pressure washing the grey colored deck with water. After this was dry, we then cleaned the deck with 30 Second Concentrate which brightened the wood and helped lift out some of the old waterseal. We decided to go with the 30 Second Concentrate after reading the reviews on Home Depot's website and we weren't disappointed. We diluted the 30 Second Concentrate 50:50 with water and sprayed it on with our deck sprayer and scrubbed it with a long handled nylon kitchen/bathroom brush before rinsing it off with water from the pressure washer. Working in the sun, we worked down the length of the deck planks, treating an area about 24" long and 4-5 deck planks wide at a time. Any more and the concentrate will soak into the deck planks and you'll spend more time respraying the planks to keep them wet as you scrub them. One gallon of concentrate treats about 200 square feet once it is diluted, so we ended up using 1.5 gallons for our 322 square feet deck. The results of the 30 Second Concentrate was a brightening of the deckwood from its pressure washed finish, although it was nowehere near as much of a difference from the first treatment of pressure washing the grey deckwood I was glad we did it as I feel we got the deck wood as clean as we could before re-sealing it. Once this had dried, we applied a coat of Honey Gold tinted waterseal using a pump deck sprayer and a 3" chip brush. We applied the waterseal working down the deck again along the full length of the planks just as we did with the 30 Second Concentrate cleaner. Our deck used less than a gallon of waterseal with the spray and brush method and we were very pleased with the results as it has left our deck looking good as new as can be seen from the before and after pictures. All in all, about a weekend's work.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by JayJohnson Waste of Money, Buy Bleach
This is simply a bleach formula. It smells like bleach and cleans like bleach. I used it to clean outdoor smooth outdoor ceramic tiles and it did no better at all than bleach would have. Also, I had some rust stains and this product did not lift it. My $2.99 gallon of Walmart Degreaser works better than this.
For the same price of this product you can buy three gallons of bleach or degreaser and have better results as far as I am concerned.

This stuff lives up to its name. I sprayed it on and then started scrubbing with a brush. DON'T do that. Just spray and let it do its job. It didn't need my help. In a few places I wiped with a rag, but overall, it did 90% of the work. It cleaned two outside resin chaises that had been sitting behind my shed for 3 years. The dirt had seeped into the resin. I thought I would have to throw them out and buy new ones. This stuff made them look like new and I have saved about $200+.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ChipeinTN Cleaning composite deck - Portico or Trex
They were supposed to be maintenance free - right! There is a class action law suit against Portico right now I am a part of. I have tried several products and this is the best to get rid of the black mold spots. Keep off your skin, wear old pants and shoe and DO NOT apply on a hot sunny day. Do early or late or when the sun is not on the deck. Mix in sprayer, spray on, give it a minute or so and us a bristle bush with talk handle to scrub in to get best results, then rinse. Do a 24" track as you work back and fourth across the deck. The product works very well AND it will need to be redone again. Nothing will keep the spots from coming back I have found.Very effective product. Wish HD in TN carried it. Only on line.
