Tip 2: Power Wash Your Home

SCOTTS® OUTDOOR CLEANER PLUS OXICLEAN™  is much more effective than using water alone, and it can be used on a variety of surfaces. It is tough on dirt and stains from moss, mold, mildew and algae and it is  safe to use around plants and grass. Scotts® Outdoor Cleaner Plus OxiClean™ 1 gallon concentrate can make-up to 10 gallons of cleaning formula from just one bottle!

Phil Dwyer, Scientist at ScottsMiracle-Gro, talks more about this new innovation in cleaning from Scotts®:

“In the past, whenever cleaning outdoor items, special  care was needed to protect landscape plants from harsh household cleaners. All new Scotts® Outdoor Cleaner Plus OxiClean™ is specially formulated to tackle messy outdoor dirt yet still be safe enough for use around grass and plants.”

Bonus Tip: If you have weeds growing in your patio, driveway, or walkway, kill them with Roundup® Max Control 365. It kills the toughest weeds and grasses to the roots so they don’t come back and prevents new weeds from coming up for a full year!
