Concrete Comes Clean with Sodium Percarbonate

concrete stainClean up that concrete walkway, patio or front step with a safe, easy and effective solution of sodium percarbonate and warm to hot water.

Removing stains, washed in dirt, mold, mildew and even algae, sodium percarbonate will also leave the area smelling fresh. It won’t harm nearby grass or plants, just rinse the area well when done.

Why? Because sodium percarbonate may be called an “oxygen cleaner” (which it is); but it is really just dry hydrogen peroxide. Actually its soda ash and hydrogen peroxide, but it works out the same. And, it breaks down safely to water and oxygen in the envirnment.

To clean stains or badly mildewed spots use a mix of 2 to 3 ounces (1/4 cup is one ounce) dry measure to 1 gallon warm to hot water. Beweare of toxic black mold, which is actually a greenish black in color and is slimy to the touch. Otherwise, simply wash with a mop or scrub brush on a handle, then rinse. For really serious staining, mix a paste of sodium percarbonate powder and hot water, and slather paste on stain scrub if needed, and let sit over night. Rinse clean with running water.

Sodium percarbonate also works wonders on brick and wood surfaces. For general cleaning mix 1 ounce (1/4 cup) dry powder to one gallon warm to hot water.
