Hi, I'm James with JNC Home Repair, today I'm going to show you how to clean a paving brick. Basically, there's a couple of ways you can do this, you can do it the old fashioned way, with a scrub brush and some cleaner. If you have a power wash available, you can use a power washer, that'll clean them up real well. Today, we're just going to demonstrate with some basic household cleaners and a scrub brush. Basically, all you want to do is just get you some dish washing liquid, you may even have some siding cleaner, some exterior siding cleaner laying around, anything like that, some kind of mild detergent, something like that, you can actually use a little bleach as well. All you do, basically, is you just want to squirt it down, using your solution, whatever it is, just spray it down, get it wet, just like so, then just take your scrub brush and actually just scrub it down like you would do anything else. Get some of that dirt and grime off of them, especially if they're outside in your backyard or out in front, they're like paving bricks, you're making a sidewalk out of them, you're going to want to clean them up every now and then. Basically all you do is just wash it off with a garden hose and it's going to be nice and clean, ready to go.
