Cheaper Equals .............Hard Work

May 21st, 2007 at 09:21 pm

I'm a firm believer in that......if I want to save money, I need to be willing to work hard. Neither one being my favorite word!!

Today was a good example. I could have hired someone to do the patio cleaning event. Or, I could have saved some money renting a pressure washer..... But, we did this ourselves with almost no cost.

Mom had bought a gallon of some sort of plant friendly cleaner, that was supposed to work magic. I brought my extreme nozzle for the hose and we got out a couple old push brooms. With a couple applications of the cleaner, some good exercise on the end of both brooms....we now have an almost new looking 40 year old patio.

So, work and time ........and a great job done for very little expense.

    I'm interested in the name of the cleaner. Had you tried anything else that was not satisfactory? I've got a 22 X 22 ft patio to clean in the same low-tech, no-pressure washer manner. I have a big bottle of muriatic acid, which I am reluctant to use.
