the best tools for outdoor spring cleaning

It’s just about time to usher winter out the door with our annual spring cleaning chores—and there’s a good chance the outdoors will need a good spruce-up, too. Here are some tools to help you freshen up your patio, outdoor furniture, and gutters, and hide away unsightly garbage cans and AC units.

Tools for cleaning the patio

Let these tools do the hard work for you to get your patio guest-ready:

  • The Leebein electric spin scrubber ($45.99) is a heavy-duty scrubbing machine that comes with a variety of brush heads to tackle all the crevices and hard-to-reach areas on the deck, but is also remote-controlled and cordless, so you’ll never have to bend down, even to change the speed or settings. It adjusts to a number of lengths and angles, too. 

  • The Old City Unltd. Moss removal brush ($25) has long wire bristles in a thin line to help remove moss and weeds that grow between pavers.

  • If it’s time for a new scrub brush, try the AIR U+ floor scrub brush ($22.99) which is dual-sided and comes with a squeegee, too. 

Tools for everything else

Your deck is clean. Great. What about all the other outdoor stuff? 

  • CLR outdoor furniture cleaner ($12.29) is highly rated and safe to use on fabric, wood, wicker, PVC, plastic, and whatever else your outdoor furniture and decor might be made of. It’s non-abrasive and contains UV protectants so every time you clean, you also shield your items from the sun, keeping them nicer for longer. 

  • Power washers can get expensive, but the APIUEK electric washer ($109.99) splits the difference there, offering you four nozzles and a spray of up to 2.4 gallons per minute at a decent price point, so you can power wash everything and call it a day.

  • If you can’t clean it, hide it: Whether it’s an unsightly garbage can or an air conditioning unit, hide it behind a more aesthetically pleasing multi-purpose privacy fence ($114.99) to give the illusion of spotlessness. The fence comes with planters so you can create a garden vibe while hiding your unsightly necessities.

  • The power washer will help with your gutters, but if you need a little more help, try the CHOMP GutterSmop ($25.97) which attaches to the CHOMP handle ($39.97) to remove dirt from your siding and gutters and help scrub away any stains caused by the elements.
