If you want to keep your fence looking good and working like new for years to come, then these tips will get you through the rough times.


The most important thing is to know how to clean your wood fence. There are a variety of different products available, which can be very confusing. Depending on your preferences and needs, there are tons of ways to go about cleaning your wood fence. You might want to try using vinegar, white vinegar, dish soap, and even laundry detergent.

Vinegar is one of the easiest and least expensive products to use. It comes in a simple spray bottle and you simply spray it on the ground near your wood and let it sit for several minutes. After the time is up, just get a sponge and scrub off any debris that has built up. It is also safe for most wood types, so you don’t have to worry about damaging your wood.


White vinegar can also help you to keep your wood fence looking nice and fresh. This product can also help with removing stains and oil from wood if that’s an issue for you. Just add a small amount, a mix of half water and half vinegar, and spray on your wood. You can also saturate a cloth and apply it to your fence. Just be sure to rinse and dab dry it afterward.


Dishwashing liquid is also a great option if you want to keep your wood fence looking fresh. Just add a few drops and wash your wood fence. It is safe to use on all types of wood, so you don’t have to worry about damaging it in the process.
