Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Not worth the effort
Bought this product for a deck that is 6' wide by 20' long, ran out, applied it twice, neither time can I tell the difference from before I started. I'll stick with a power washer, this isn't worth the money or effort.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 11blade Light duty, NOT for deep cleaning
Fair warning-I read others poor reviews and decided to make up my own mind. Bought 2 jugs and set to work cleaning very grimy deck (north side, LOTS of rain lately, 1/4" slime dangerous when wet). No mix sprayer feature nice, but ran out of product quickly. Scrubbed with stiff brush in worst spots-not effective. Outside temp. 68F, cloudy, deck damp from previous rain-perfect conditions. See my review on Ryobi pressure washer. This product <fail> helped me justify the $119 for the pressure washer, and, not having to breathe bleach fumes, too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peppermintpatticake Just OK. Nothing exceptional!
It worked fine, but no better than any other wood cleaner you could use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tailgater Worked great for me......
My deck hadn't been maintained in probably five years. Where the stain had gone away I was left with lots of green mold. From all of the poor reviews I was a little hesitant to purchase this product, but I figured I'd give it whirl anyway.
I was surprised at how well this product performed. I followed the instructions (kind of) where it clearly states that stubborn areas may need a second application and may also require a bit of scrubbing.
Here's what I did. I sprayed the solution on my deck and immediately hit the entire deck with a hard bristle deck brush. I didn't have to scrub too hard, but it did require some effort. After it was all scrubbed I rinsed the deck with the hose, let it dry and BAM! All of that green algae/mold was gone! This product won't remove old stain, but it sure took care of the 5 years of deck grunge.
The key here is the scrubbing and not letting it dry before you have a chance to rinse it off. My deck is totally shaded, so if you're doing this in direct sunlight I would suggest either keeping the surface wet by lightly hitting it with water or doing small sections at a time. Also, forget about just applying and rinsing. You really need to use a scrub brush to do a good job. Any product that claims just "apply and rinse" is like saying you can lose weight by eating. That's not usually how it works.
Two final tips: my deck is small, only 12x16 with two built-in benches. The bottle went fast, so work quickly. It was just enough to do my deck and benches. Lastly, don't use the rinse setting on the jug. Just connect your sprayer to the hose for the rinsing. I hope this review helps. If used correctly and with a little extra effort this product does exactly what it claims. I cleaned my 12x16 deck in less than 30 minutes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Laceface Ok if you don't have a powerwasher
I purchased this to use as a fast method to get our deck clean before listing our house. We DO own a powerwasher, though. Wish I would have just used it because we went back with it afterward. This product can work for you depending on how dirty your deck is, however. If it's not that bad, go for it. Buy several bottles because they empty fast. I only bought one so it's likely the results would have been better with more. Also, use some sort of scrubbing method to work the soap in. The directions had me worried about letting it dry (says not to) so I don't think I left it on long enough and did not brush very thoroughly as the sun was beating down. The nozzle mechanism does work well for creating higher pressure with only a hose.

Very easy to use, did the job!!! Just sprayed it on, waited a bit and rinsed it off. Could see the bleaching process immediately.
