Greased Lightning- Cleaning up Dirty Brick

Ever since we bought out home- one year ago yesterday, I have had one item on our home improvement to do list. Cleaning up the brick in front of the house.

When we moved in the house didn't have gutters, so the rain ran off the roof, hit the dirt and then threw mud back onto the brick exterior.

Once we got our gutters installed and the flowerbeds built we decided we could finally get rid of the dirty brick. And spraying it off with the hose wasn't getting the job done.

Justin came home one day with some Super Strength Greased Lightning (from Lowe's) and a scrub brush.

All he did was spray the dirty walls with Greased Lightning, wait a few minutes for it to work it's magic and then lightly scrub with a scrub brush to loosen the dirt.

With a little bit of elbow grease (Thanks Honey!), we got a huge improvement!
