I found this non scratching "soft bristles wash brush" in the grocery store and it was not expensive so I thought it was worth a try. My husband took it and screwed it to an 8 ft. by 1 1/4 inch wooden dowel and then put some duct tape around it for extra support.
We cleaned all the siding, the gutters and two window awnings with it and it worked just great. I think it is going to hold up well as after all this usage it is still good as new.

We had an exterminator spray for yellow jackets. The insecticide has left yellow and brown stains on our white vinyl siding. How can we get the stains off? They seem to be baked on by the sun.

I would first see if they come off with water and agitation with a soft brush. The spot might be water soluble and easily removed this way. If the spots are persistent and not easily removed with water, maybe try a simple degreaser or all-purpose cleaner. Follow directions on container and start with a medium strength solution. Be gentle, and test a spot to make sure there will be no bad reactions.
I would also recommend calling the Exterminator and asking them to remove the stains. They should be very aware of the stains their product leaves behind, and should have told you this might happen and allowed you to possibly choose another form of exterminating.
My daughter added a woodstove to one room in her house this winter. The stovepipe was such that it created a downdraft and caused creosote to get all over her vinyl siding. Does anyone have a solution or product that will work on this?
Could try to warm it with a hair dryer, scrape it off with heavy duty steel wool, or I'd try WD-40 that stuff works on a lot of things. Or try a hot water wash and scrub.
