Gardeners across Briton are preparing to soak up the summer sun in the coming months, whether that’s chilling out with a drink on the patio or hosting friends and family. But if you do have a concrete patio in your garden, now is the best time to give it a post-winter clean.

How to clean your concrete patio using baking soda and dish soap

To begin, add half a cup of baking soda to one gallon of water.

Next, mix one-eighth of washing-up liquid into the solution.

Transfer the mixture to a spray bottle, and spritz it onto your concrete patio.

Allow the liquid to sit for half an hour – this gives it plenty of time to get to work.

After the solution has had time to soak in and work its magic, it’s time for a little bit of elbow grease.

Scrub the area thoroughly before rinsing with fresh, clean water. You can use a hose to speed up this process.

For added protection, you can apply a coat of concrete sealant to protect your patio during the summer months.

Concrete sealant can be purchased from most DIY and garden shops.
