Before I got irrigation my sprinklers left that rusty discoloration on my siding from the iron content in my well. I need to clean it off and want to do it in such a way as to not harm my flowerbeds. I've been looking at using a powerwasher and have concerns over what will clean this color off that won't harm plants. All hints are appreciated! Thanks!

I have used a product called RustAid. It can be used around plants. Read the label. Spray it on and rust disappears. It is available at the big box stores. Check it out on line.

So glad to hear about this. And no high power spray needed? Always worry about impact of pressure-washer force water.

Thanks! Now I can't wait until spring to use it!
