Budget Yard Cleaning: A Penny-wise Alternative to Pressure Washers

As winter’s grip loosens, your patio might be showing signs of wear. But one ingenious woman is debunking the notion that you need a pressure washer for a revitalized outdoor haven.

This cleaning maestro reveals that all it takes is a simple one-pound solution to breathe life back into a weathered patio.

With three kids in tow, this resourceful mother shared her transformation on Instagram (@blooms_abode), and The Range later reposted it. “Embracing the outdoors as much as possible. Prepping my patio for the upcoming warmer days,” she captioned.

The best part? She walks us through her process, proving that achieving the same astonishing results is well within reach.

Starting with a £11.99 “block paving set” from The Range, she proceeds to a thrifty solution that costs as low as a pound—The Pink Stuff, found in discount stores like Home Bargains.

She deftly applies it to the patio tiles, creating an oddly satisfying visual, then follows up with a cream cleaner, rinsing it off for a sparkling finish. The outcome garners an overwhelming chorus of praise.

“Such an impressive job!” adds another.
