For whatever reason, last night a skunk decided to let fly against a
four or five square foot section of the white vinyl siding. A weak
solution of bleach water neutralized the odor in pretty short order, but
all attempts remove the yellow stain have failed so far.
I've tried stronger bleach solution (up to 50%), vinegar, baking soda,
and various household cleaners (Formula 409, Pinesol), etc.
If anyone has had any success with this stuff, would appreciate your
I can replace the siding, but would like to use that as a last resort.
Thanks in advance!
Never heard of this problem so I googled. The first page of results is
worthless. Enjoy the other 650 pages.
Maybe 30% hydrogen peroxide,used for bleaching hair to blonde?
Sunlight(UV) would increase the bleaching action,too.
The chlorine bleach you buy in stores is only 6% solution,anyways,according
to the label.
I have no experience dealing with stains like that so this is nothing
more than a guess. What you need may be some kind of enzyme that can
break down biological stains. Call a pet store and see if they have
something for your problem.
Use straight bleach, wipe it on and leave it.
Give it a few hours.
I don't know for sure that this will work,
but I have cleaned white gutters with bleach.
Often they don't look clean until the next day.
