Reviews From Real Customers
This product worked well. However, I think you need to pass onto the company who manufactures this that it would be beneficial if they made the containers of the Concentrate and Ready to Spray look different not just have it written on the container.
E. g. Different colours used. I thought I had ordered the Ready to spray and started using it as such, but realised after awhile it was behaving differently to one I had used previously. It turns out I had ordered the concentrate but only discovered that after looking closely at the container.
Spray and walkaway uses green on that container. I think for safety reasons differentiation should be used on the other two containers.
Used this cleaner to clean driveway algae and mold stains as instructed with 1:1 dilution and waited for 5 minutes to clean with light pressure washer. It did not clean much at all and that is with the light pass of pressure washer.
Next I used the pressure washer in the adjoining area which was not treated with 30 second cleaner and it cleaned that area. Picture shows the area which was treated with 30 sec cleaner marked with number 30 and on the left area which was not treated with 30 second but slowly cleaned with pressure washer.
It seems to have some chemical similar to diluted acid along with the bleach based on the surface reaction when the solution is applied to the concrete or vinyl. If you are hoping to use this to cut down the cleaning time for driveway, it will not help.
EXIMO cleans oil stains better than pressure washing by working deep into the pores of the concrete, restoring its original luster and clean appearance. EXIMO is more than a surface cleaner, its an all-natural waterless cleaner that uses a time-driven process and natures own biochemistry to completely remove tough petroleum stains from concrete.
Through a process called bioremediation, microbes in EXIMO break down the hydrocarbon chain of petroleum stains deep below the surface into harmless water and CO2. This process restores the surface to its original appearance without the need for expensive pressure washing or the use of harsh chemicals.
EXIMO is a waterless powder that’s easy to use. Simply apply the product and sweep it over the concrete until the excess powder has been disbursed. Once the product is applied you’re done. EXIMO is a time-driven maintenance program that will show visible results in two to four applications.
For use on concrete, driveways, sidewalks, pavers, and more. EXIMO is also environmentally safe, requires no water, and reduces downtime saving you time. EXIMOs redesigned formula is environmentally safe and can be used as a wet or dry application.
Note, a wet application of EXIMO can drastically reduce the amount of time needed to apply the product.
I was dealing with some old oil stains on my concrete driveway and couldn?t find a solution to fully remove the oil stains. But after applying Eximo and giving it some time to work, I was impressed with the results.
It saved me the time and headache of pressure washing, and the results are better than I expected! I?m looking forward to trying this to tackle some other oil and grease stains in my shop that have been problematic.
Overall, I?m happy to add Eximo to my cleaning supply inventory.
Oil Eater original cleaner and degreaser’s safe water-based formula dissolves grease and grime from almost any surface. Use Oil Eater on driveways, asphalt, concrete, engines, lawn mowers, tools, ovens, outdoor grills and much more.
Since they are ultra concentrates they are perfect for light, medium or heavy cleaning, just add water. Our safe water-based formula dissolves grease and grime from almost any surface. Use Oil Eater on dirty clothes, clean stains from carpets, upholstery and filthy floor mats.
Our freshly scented formula lets you clean both indoors and out without that chemical smell. Better yet, our proprietary anti-corrosion chemistry means you don’t need to worry about damaging surfaces.
This is by far the best de-greaser I have ever used. Considering that I have been an auto mechanic for several years as well as worked on industrial equipment that is really saying something about this product.
Yes I have had some (only available to commercial/industrial business) that clean a little better, but they were quite harsh and required you to wear gloves. This stuff is Eco-friendly, EPA approved, hard enough to clean transmission pans and oil pans back to near new cleanliness, but also gentle enough to get grease and oil stains out of your laundry.
That’s part of what makes this stuff so great, it’s incredibly versatile. In this instance I bought 10 gallons of it to use in my parts washer. My only word of caution is for people not to use it to remove oil stains from asphalt.
I have read several comments from others who have said that this stuff will break down asphalt. Which makes sense, asphalt is an oil/petroleum based type of pavement.
This stuff isn’t for wimpy cleaning jobs. it’s serious stuff. It can bleach painted surfaces if you are not careful, but it really is a powerful cleaner we have been using for over 20 years. When using it full strength wear a paint mask to keep the mist from being inhaled because it is strong and can make you choke.
In any diluted form it is quite safe to use. But. If you get it on your hands you can feel it sucking the oils from your skin, so wear gloves whenever appropriate. Never ever use this to wash a car because it is very hard on painted surfaces.
It is good, however, for removing brake dust on unpainted wheels, etc. To help make ends meet my wife cleaned homes for years and relied on this stuff for cleaning bathrooms and greasy stove tops above and below the burners.
Her customers were amazed that their stoves could ever be so clean again. For years we bought this at Costco but they stopped carrying it years ago, so we had to default to Home Depot. I am glad we found it here! A way cheaper too! Soapy, scummy shower walls and grout clean up easily with this stuff using it straight, or 50/50.
But I wouldn’t use it on marble straight out of the bottle, anyway. (Check with Oil Eater’s maker for guidance on that). It cleans barbecues like a champ, but again, if it is painted and not porcelainized be careful! And, get this it kills ants instantly!.
Scotts outdoor cleaner plus oxiclean 1 gallon concentrate makes up to 10 gallons and covers 1,000 to 2,500 sq. Ft. The fast foaming action of scotts outdoor cleaner plus oxiclean lifts dirt, and wipes out stains caused by moss, mold, mildew and algae.
Also, scotts outdoor cleaner plus oxiclean does not have any chlorine bleach so it is safe to use around lawns and plants, plus it can be used in power washers. Scotts outdoor cleaner plus oxiclean is also incredibly versatile.
It can be used on cement, stone, brick, wood, composite wood, patio furniture, flower pots, siding and more!.
Bought this spray bottle and the 1 gallon refill next to it on the shelf to do a number of cleaning tasks outside. Cleaner works well. Nice that it’s bleach-free and can spray safely around plants & grass.
BUT, discovered that the spray bottle CANNOT be opened and refilled. The spray product runs out pretty quickly when cleaning large areas. I bought a 1 gallon refill but have no way to spray it. Why sell a big refill when the sprayer doesn’t open?!? Could use improvement in this regard.
If you need to do a lot of cleaning, you’ll need to but many multiple spray bottles.
Very happy with Scotts Outdoor Cleaner. It’s spring clean-up time in New England. I used this product on my mesh pool chairs, and in my deck. It did an AMAZING job on the chairs. After all of last summer by the pool, and spending the winter stored in the garage, they were covered in dirt and mildew.
I mixed the concentrate in a Scotts Multi-Use Sprayer, lightly sprayed the chairs, gave a quick brushing, and hosed them off. They came out looking like brand new! My deck is made of Ipe hardwood, and normally requires serious power washing, like a concrete patio.
I wanted to test this product out, so I figured I’d give it a shot on the decking. I mixed it at a 1:1 ratio, sprayed it on the decking, brushed it in good, then hosed it off. It didn’t come out as good as it does with the power washer, but I was amazed at how much dirt, mildew and algae it did remove! I wound up power washing the deck anyway, because it’s pretty necessary with the Ipe.
But I think this product would be fantastic for a normal soft wood deck, like pine, cedar or redwood. I’ll definitely be buying this product again!.
I would have given the product and bottle five stars if the bottle was refillable. This product is great at cleaning a variety of outdoors surfaces. We’ve used it on patio furniture, patio cushions, wooden portions of screened porch, and vinyl floor of an outdoor deck all with great success.
The design of the bottle makes it so easy to switch between applying the product and rinsing the item being washed. However, it is really important to know that the bottle is NOT refillable. That means that you either need to purchase a new bottle once you run out or you need to hang onto the old style bottle which is refillable.
We go through quite a bit of this product each spring so like to buy the large refill. That’s more economical and environmentally sound. Not possible with this non-refillable bottle. What a disappointment.

Goof Off Concrete Degreaser is a powerful cleaner that draws out oil stains from concrete with no scrubbing or rinsing. It applies as a liquid that pulls oil and grease out of concrete, then dries to a powder that can be easily swept up, leaving concrete free of spots and stains.
I have an apartment building where leaking trash is carried down the stairs often. Bleach works some but after a year some of those stains desired to stay. Then I heard about this product. I poured it on around 10am and by 4pm I started sweeping it up stair by stair.
It was extremely dusty but I had the entire stairwell blocked off. I did not dilute it any. My after stairs looked like new construction!! Will implement this to be done quarterly!.
This product is amazing and easy to use. After reading the other reviews I decided to use the full strength (after thoroughly shaking the bottles). I let it dry for 24 hours and then brushed off most of the powder residue and hosed it down.
It didn’t have strong fumes and it washed away easily. I was concerned it would bleach the concrete but it didn’t. There are absolutely no traces of the oil stain and no traces of the cleaner. I highly recommend this product but strongly suggest using full strength and not diluted.
I love this cleaner. It has take green mold off my deck and north facing vinyl siding with no scrubbing. Read the directions and adjust the strength of your solution and I found giving it 10 minutes sitting on the area being cleaned improved first time cleaning success.
Don’t let the solution dry on the surface that only makes it harder to clean. I found cleaning on a cloudy day helped as well. I have used in my power washer and now have bought the prepackaged hose sprayer for higher on my house.
Make sure you wear protective eye glasses! It improved the look of my plastic adirondack chairs but they are old and have dried tree sap- it did take off the mold. Very pleased!.
Spring is just around the corner and I cannot wait to start cleaning up my patio area for all the BBQ’s this coming year! I have a concrete slab, very big, and it tends to turn dark and spotty throughout the year with rain, snow, ice, dirt and whatever.
I tried this on a small section just to see what I will be able to do in a few weeks to clean it off and it looks fantastic! I can’t wait to clean up everything around the yard including the exterior areas with the white vinyl siding on it.
Most of the exterior is brick and looks great but the siding is grimy and dirty. Can’t wait to get it done! This product is strong, efficient and actually WORKS!!! LOVING IT! Highly recommend to use!!.

Grabbed this in store as I needed a general garden hose spray cleaner. This worked great. I have a composite deck with a couple of beige plastic deck storage boxes. It cleaned the deck boxes beautifully with no scrubbing.
I scrubbed a small section of the deck and just sprayed the majority with no scrubbing hoping it would clean but only the scrubbed deck section came clean. Exactly as the product stated! Also it cleaned a small area of mildewy pavers.
green went clean with no scrubbing. I’m buying another container. It’s a good cleaner.
It worked well but we made the mistake of trying to clean the siding as we sprayed so we used more than is necessary. You just lightly spray a complete coating and let set then spray off. I completely cleaned the mold on the siding and saved me the $200 I paid last year to have a professional do it.
It does NOT need a power washer, but you will need enough pressure in your host to reach up high. Worth every penny.
This worked so much better than I expected it to. I used it on the outside of my above-ground pool, the ladder/stairs, the outside of my chicken coop, various plastic/resin furniture, and my aluminum siding.
It worked amazingly well on everything except the siding (but that’s because there’s no helping that). Took of mold/algae stains, dirt, stains without much, if any effort. Definitely worth the price.

True story. three days ago I saw a review for this on YouTube. I will admit, it seemed to good to be true, but intriguing nonetheless. Had to pick up an item for my husband, passed the display of the 30 Seconds outdoor cleaner.
I picked up the smaller spray bottle and a gallon jug. I not only used it on the painted siding but on the reddish concrete bricks we have. Not exaggerating – it works. I waited the required time and in some cases used a medium bristled scrub brush for heavier soiling on the siding.
Rinsed it off – clean! Tried it on a highly algaed concrete brick, waited and then used the brush, and rinsed. Still some stubborn spots, reapplied etc. Clean! I am totally thrilled. Definitely a win.
BONUS note – untreated wooden bench, totally weathered for 12 years. Used it with the brush. looks awesome! Picked up another gallon jug yesterday. :).
I got a price to clean my Trex deck and patio for 750. 00. I’ve used this product before and loved it ( cleaned green algae off of my entire fence!! Bought another bottle and did it all myself! Came out perfect!!! Saved myself a ton of money and used a small amount of elbow grease ( well worth it) getting it all off! I would HIGHLY recommend buying this product!!!.
I tried as instructed on the deck, patio, and wood trim. IT di not work at all. My pressure washer took ALL of the mildew and dirt off and it was NO different in the treated areas or non treated areas.
All this is is a diluted solution of common household bleach. Save you $$ and buy a pressure washer or a bottle of Clorox.
Pros know that the powerful solvents in ZEP Purple Pressure Wash destroy dirt with a low-foaming. Easy to rinse formula. This size is a 64 oz. concentrate and makes up to 12. 5 Gal. of pressure wash cleaner.

This effective, fast-acting outdoor cleaner can be used on a variety of surfaces including wood decks, concrete driveways, sidewalks, stucco, vinyl siding, brick walls and fences.
Arundel store showed this is stock. Team members couldn’t find it, although 14 listed in stock. Eventually bought when in stock at Southport. Used it today on small concrete tiled courtyard. Diluted to instructions, waited 15mins then scrubbed.
Absolutely no difference at all. So disappointed. If it looks better after some time, will addend review but so far, waste of $30 :(.
Name implies it works in 30 seconds. Diagramed instructions on the label indicate you dilute the product, spray it on, hose off with water. Hidden in the fine print, it says spray it on, wait 2-15 minutes then rinse it off.
Scrub with a brush if necessary. Well, boys and girls, scrubbing with a brush will be necessary. This stuff doesn’t work any better than cleaning bleach, which has a higher concentration of sodium hypochlorite, the active ingredient.
Add a teaspoon of a wetting agent (soap, dish detergent, etc) to cleaning bleach and save $5 a gallon.

Reviews From Real Customers
Decent product, definitely near gloves because this stuff WILL give your hands a lesson if you don’t. Burning and a nearly impossible slime that is a bear to rinse off, all while still burning. That being said, either my driveway just has way over the allotment of oil stains or this product just isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
It was decent, but if you want spots GONE, keep looking for something else. Not bad, but not what I needed either.
I purchased this to try to remove trans fluid from my blacktop driveway. I first tried pouring it on full strength on each spot, allowing it to soak until it began to dry somewhat. Then, scrubbed it with a brush, then used rinsed.
Still there. So, then I repeated only to use high pressure to rinse. No difference. I think it’s more for concrete than blacktop. My recommendations is going to be yes only because it did remove it from concrete.
I am skeptical of ‘Driveway cleaners’. But my 4,000psi pressure washer was blowing off the top ;layer of my concrete driveway, as I attempted to clean up embedded grease. I applied the cleaner full strength and brushed it around with a broom.
After sitting for a few minutes, I rinsed the driveway down and over 90% of the embedded grease was gone; without blowing off the top layer of the concrete. Works well and is recommended.
Mold Armor E-Z Multi-Purpose Pressure Washer Concentrate is ideal to be used on vinyl, brick, sealed concrete, stucco, painted wood and plastic. Mold Armor contains anti-corrosives to protect your pressure washer parts.
This powerful amazing formula reinvents the pressure washer category with a whole new meaning to clean and provides a better performance than a pressure washer by itself.
This is a good product, nothing spectacular but also nothing bad either. It’s not going to get out old oil or paint stains, so if you’re expecting that don’t buy this. Or any other similar product. Those stains need special treatment as I’ve learned.
I really didn’t see much of difference between this product and other driveway cleaners I’ve tried, but it’s cheaper than some of the others for the same amount of product. Since it seems to do just as well as the other brands and costs less, I’m going to stick with this one.
Thanks for offering this product Auto Zone!! Happy customer as always.
Bring back the pride in your patio by eliminating stains caused by moss, mold, mildew and algae that have built up over the year. Eliminate those tough stains with ScottsĀ outdoor cleaner patio and deck with ZeroScrubā„¢ technology.
With a fast acting formula, there is no need for scrubbing or power washing. Simply use the extended reach, battery powered wand to spray the convenient no mix formula onto a dry, stained surface. You’ll start seeing results in 24 hr.
ScottsĀ outdoor cleaner patio and deck with ZeroScrubā„¢ technology works great on vinyl, concrete, wood, wood composite, slate, cement, stone, brick and many more outdoor surfaces with long-lasting results.
I used this on pavers and on wood deck. Pavers: It removed a circle of dirt from where a planter was, but did nothing else. It did not remove the green from the grout lines and it did not remove spots from beneath furniture feet.
Deck: It did nothing. The green algae that was there when I sprayed it is still there now. For those wondering, I followed the directions. I reapplied after 24 hours. It just didn’t clean like they say it will.
Update: I used a third time on the pavers and it did remove some of the green. The patio looks much better but the product took three applications.
I received this item about 10 days ago to test and I tried it on two areas. I tried it on my patio which was covered with mold, the once red brick had turned a black color. I think I put a generous amount on there and six days later it is still black.
Not quite as black, but certainly not red. I also tried it on a vinyl fence and it did remove some of the mold but it is still not as clean as I have been able to get it with other products. I’m not sure why anybody wants to buy a product like this when it takes five days to see the results.
I realize that it is a zero scrub product but from what I can see it’s a no results product. I’m going to try it in some other areas and give it more chances as soon as this cold weather is over. I may amend my review at that point but right now I would not put this at the top of the list to buy again.
It is cold here in this area and perhaps using it in the summer would make it more efficient, time will tell.
There are many different products available for driveway cleaning and the best one to use will depend on the specific situation. Some products are designed to remove oil and grease stains, while others are better for removing dirt and grime.
In general, it is best to start with a mild cleaner and then move to a stronger one if necessary. It is also important to read the labels carefully and follow the directions carefully to avoid damaging the driveway.
