Cedar Siding Maintenance Cleaning with Stain Solver
Peter W. shared his remarkable before and after photos of his cedar siding. It needed some TLC maintenance and cleaning.
Here is Peter’s email …
“This is a before and after picture of a small section of our cedar sided house which became black from an older stain and mildew.
We mixed 4 scoops of stain solver in 2 gallons of warm water and applied it with a garden sprayer. Scrubbed and rinsed off. We followed the cleaning with a wood brightener to restore the cedar to like new.
The rest of the house will follow!”
Thanks for sharing your great photos of your cedar siding and its cleaning with Stain Solver.
“I’ve bought and used this product several times with great results, but, today it just blew my mind.
I was working on a sailboat I’d bought at an auction 10+ years ago and also doing laundry today. The sails were badly stained when I got the boat 10 years ago. I was going to replace them, but instead patched them (had holes and stained from storage, probably got wet or were put away damp). Anyway to make a long story short, I soaked the jib sail in Stain Solver in a 5 gallon bucket with one cup of Stain Solver in about 3 gallons of water. Agitated by hand about every 10 minutes for over a half hour and were astonished at the results.
The pre-existing 10-year stains were barely noticeable. I hung them on the boat and rinsed them with a hose and let them dry in the sun and the difference in unbelievable. The jib sail was a test and convinced me to also try the main sail which was actually worse. It came out as good or better than the jib.
The boat is only 14′ but the mast is 21′ high from the deck and the two sails total over 100 sq. ft. I had tried washing the sails before with various cleaners but to no avail. I was convinced you had a good product before but this surprised me enough to write to you about it. Also have before and after pictures if you would like to see them. Thanks, now I “really” appreciate your product.”
Above are my pictures. Quite a difference on the sails. Remember these sails were stained when I got the boat 10+ years ago and prior attempts to clean the sails didn’t work.
Here is Laura’s email explaining what happened to her sports bras.
I am writing to tell you something you probably already know, that you have an amazing and excellent product in Stain Solver! I did one of those crazy obstacle course events last weekend with a few obstacles that had us either slogging on our bellies under about 20 -30 yards of barbed-wire through mud and rocks or in a mucky pond climbing over and under logs when we weren’t climbing up hills or through mud and muck. Needless to say, we got dirty. (This was not my first time doing one of these, but this time was way dirtier than the last).
I thought my sports bras were ruined after these events because they were so stained from the muck; they even had dirt trapped in the seams. I couldn’t imagine they’d be good for much other than another a pull toy for the dogs. I knew chlorine bleach would ruin them. I had Stain Solver work on a red wine-stained table cloth, so I gave it a try on the sports bras.
I’ve enclosed photos so you can see the challenge Stain Solver was up against on one of them. I used the Stain Solver as directed (4 scoops per gallon of warm water) and let it soak for about 6 hours, rinsed and did it again, then tossed them in the wash. I was stunned. I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw how clean they were. And there is no damage to the elastic or fabric like there would have been with bleach. I’ve shared it with my friends, and am posting this onto Facebook!!! I want the world to know what a great product you have.
I hope you and your family never stop making this stuff!
Thank you, Laura, for sharing your story and great before and after photos!
Justin owns and operates a professional carpet cleaning business, and he’s discovered Stain Solver is an amazing PRETREAT product. He mixes it up in a garden hand-pump sprayer and saturates the carpet the first thing upon arriving at the job. Then, as the Stain Solver works, he gets out his equipment allowing the Stain Solver to work on it’s own for about 15 minutes.
Below is Georgia’s story about betting her son that she could make his ball cap white again with Stain Solver. Be sure to check out her pictures, shown above.
These might be the best Before and After photos ever submitted.
Here is Georgia’s story in her own words.
“My son dearly loves his white ball cap because of the elastic in the band. He works in a manufacturing shop and wears it all day. Over time, it turned disgustingly black with grease and oil. I offered to wash it time after time, betting I could make it white again with Stain Solver.
Rolling his eyes at me each time, he refused and said the cap was a lost cause. Finally, he brought it to me and bet me I couldn’t get it clean.
When I put it under the faucet and water just ran off it, he laughed and started the “I told you so” routine. Panic rushed over him when I put the hat in a bowl of hot water and Stain Solver. The water fizzed and bubbled, so he was sure the hat was going to be a pile of fibers when it came out. Instead of rolling, his eyes nearly popped out of his head when he saw the clean, white cap the next day.
Tim, I was so pleased. Not because the hat was white – I knew it would be. It proved Mom DOES know what she is talking about – and to me, that is priceless.
Because Stain Solver ROCKS, Curtis is rocking his freshly whitened hat again.
P.S. The cap already needs another dip in the Stain Solver, so I am anticipating him walking through the door saying, “Hey, Mom, do you have any more of that magic stuff?””
Georgia, thanks for sharing your story and the photos of the hat. Yes, Mom does know what she is talking about.
