An easy way to clean your siding on your house is: Tape a garden hose to a wide push broom, using duct tape at 2 or 3 places along the handle. Position the nozzle near the top of the broom head, just above the bristles. Now start scrubbing and rinsing at the same time!

How do I remove dark green stains on siding from a dripping faucet? The same thing I would use for tubs and sinks? It's so bad I'm thinking of painting this small area with white primer.

It is algae. Remove with a solution of chlorine bleach and water.

That is what my dad did many, many years ago when he had the same issue on the overhang. He painted it with a rustoleum type product. He got up on the roof and scrubbed it down first, then painted. That green stuff is a huge challenge to remove.

There is a product call "Spray and Forget" that is great for removing algae. I used it on my RV. It doesn't work immediately, but doesn't harm the thing you spray or any plants it may get on.

Since you say this is a small area - just where the water drips/runs down from an outside wall faucet you will not need a large quantity of cleaner.

Very handy spray container.
You can always add a little chlorine bleach if necessary.

Similar products are sold at other stores but usually cost more than $1.

I live in the tropics and we have a lot of geen algie all the time. I use a power sprayer to clean the places the algie is really bad. You can also mix some bleach with water and use a scrub brush to clean this.
