Cleaning a Painted Concrete Birdbath

I have a large 3-piece birdbath in the backyard. It has been there for several years and needs cleaning. It has mildew or mold all over it. It is made of cement and antiqued with a light grey color over the original white. I would like to clean it without damaging the concrete or original paint. Any suggestions?

Clean the birdbath thoroughly with white vinegar and a scrub brush or scrub it with a 50/50 mixture of bleach and water. If you own a pressure washer, you can make quick work of cleaning your birdbath with very little effort. If you use bleach or vinegar, make sure to rinse the birdbath completely, removing all of the cleaning residue. Let the birdbath dry completely. Good luck.
