Cool Cleaning vinyl siding/

Products to clean off spores and spider crap on vinyl siding.
Hopefully easy on plants and the user. I have used simply green. It cleans the dirt but not the spores or spider crap. HELP!:::

Welcome to the forums!

It will probably take a little scrubbing to get those spots clean. A brush that can be screwed onto a roller handle should help make the scrubbing a little easier to do.

I can't think of any product that would clean that stuff off the siding without scrubbing and without damaging the siding in the process.

You're going to need a little elbow grease on this.

Have you tried simple green on a brush then power wash the tough spots after soaking. We have an upper deck that hangs over the walkout basement and the spiders love it. There were also a ton of cocoon things too that I couldn't get off unless I blasted them with the power washer. If you don't own one of them rental is fairly inexpensive and should make short work out of it.

Have to be careful with vinyl siding and a pressure washer not to get the water under the siding

Ya, when washing vinyl siding it's best to aim the wand downward. When you shoot the water upward there is a good chance the water will get behind the siding In other words - that means you need to get on the ladder or have an extension for the wand.
