Customer Questions & Answers

Will it kill shrubs/plants if they are dripped on as many of the cleaners are toxic to plants?

Asked by: dh
It doesn't seem to harm the plants. It recommends wetting the leaves of the plants before using the cleaner by them. That's what I did, and I didn't see any damage to garden flowers, plants, and shrubs.

1 gal. House Wash, All-Purpose Cleaner is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.

So I was looking for a good cleaner to use on both my vinyl siding, my vinyl fence (was white but now a little greenish from mildew and dirt), and my shed (wood) siding. This M-1 House Wash was up to the job. I sprayed it with a garden sprayer (did not add bleach) and then pressure washed. It did an amazing job, and I didn't need to do any hand scrubbing except for a little stubborn stain on the bottom of the fascia board which I hadn't gotten clean the last time I cleaned the house. I was very happy with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cleaner!! As a contractor, I tried numerous house cleaners and this one is the best by far! I have used this product for several years now and would not waste time or money on anything else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical to use This is a very versatile cleaning product, it can be used on just about everything - the label lists cedar, aluminum,, galvanized, vinyl, stucco, fiberglass, masonite, plastic, and even painted wood. There was not a strong smell, and it contains no phosphates, solvents, abrasives, or chlorine. It is very cost effective and dilutes up to make 44 gallons! It effortlessly removed mildew and stains from our wood siding, making it ready to paint in no time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Works For big or small projects, light or heavy duty this product can serve the purpose. It's concentrated so you can mix 1: 1 or 40: 1. It can be used/mixed in bucket,pump sprayer or used in a pressure washer. Take the time read the label. I used this to clean a composite deck that I was re-coating. First I lightly wet the deck -used a pump sprayer (pick your necessary ratio) to apply. Then I used a 24" push broom ( lightly mist if drying occurs or spray on more product). Let it sit then used a pressure washer to rinse. As it was drying spot treated several areas using a hand brush. This product just works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent interior/exterior household cleaner This cleaner is terrific! It cleans everything that I've used it on so far without leaving nay trace of the stain. I've used it so far for cleaning the siding on my house and to prepare a wood surface for painting. This is a concentrate so be sure to read the instructions but generally a 40:0 water-concentrate mixture works well. There are no strong odors or chemicals to worry about when using this cleaner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safe & effective I used this product to clean a cement patio before painting it. Worked great. I had filled a bucket with the proper ratio to water and when I dipped my brush in the solution turned brown! The brush I was using had been previously used on a BBQ grill and the grease was attacked. Almost no odor. 1 gallon should last a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ... Tho this is not a name brand cleaner, after using it myself i was amazed that it works better than name brands. In short, it works like a champ. I will be buying more of this once i am out of this bottle. Defenitly would suggest it to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product Mixed per the product label 1 part wash, 3 parts bleach, 16 parts water for 1 gallon Sprayed on wait ten minutes, removed all black residue from soffat, gutters and siding, tougher spots reapplied and rinsed again and it removed with just the water pressure from my hose. Wait the 10 minutes as directed or you will have to reapply. Best house wash I have found, compared to krud kutter, simple green, etc. Wear Safety glasses and old clothes they will show bleach staining.
