How Do I Clean My Vinyl Fence and/or Railing?

  • Most dirt can be washed off with a mild soap and water solution.
  • Heavier stains can be cleaned with any non-toxic household cleaner.
  • On occasion you may want to spray your fence with a garden hose. This will help remove grass clippings, dirt and fertilizer chemicals and keep it looking as new as possible.
  • To remove minor stains use a non-abrasive liquid cleaner.

For removal of major stains follow the manufacturer's directions for one of the following cleaning agents:

  • Simple Green® All Purpose Cleaner
  • Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser
  • Mineral Spirits
  • Trichloroethylene
  • CLR (Calcium, Lime and Rust) Cleaner
  • Vinegar

Note: Goof Off® and Goo Gone® are not recommended to remove stains.
