Red face vinyl siding

My son sprayed the product Repel (insect repellent) all over the vinyl siding on one side of my house. He sprayed this product on lovebugs.The vinyl siding is now stained everywhere he sprayed. We have tried bleach and water and a stain remover product by Behr.We have also preassure washed the house after applying these stain removers. Is there anything that will get this stain off my siding before I end up having to replace it with new siding?

Vinyl is one of those products which tend to readily absorb other chemicals (especially petrolium-based) and tend to stain easily. Unfortunately I doubt that you will ever be able to remove the stain which you have. Hopefully you will be able to locate replacement siding which matches your original, so you will only have to replace the stained pieces and not re-do the entire house.

Most vinyl siding can be painted - check with a good paint store for the proper product.

Not a great solution, but it will save tearing out and redoing.
