It was way past time for some exterior spring cleaning: specifically, the vinyl siding on our house. The Florida climate encourages a particularly stubborn rust to grow on houses here. This rust is not impressed by pressure-washing. It is not impressed with cleaners that say "spray on and rinse off." This rust must be sprayed and then scrubbed hard with a firm brush. It is dirty and exhausting work, involving a high ladder.
We did one long, tall, windowless wall and it took most of 5 hours. Today after church, we did a small wall that was mostly windows. Piece, by piece, we will get it all done and we will once again live in a yellow house instead of a rusty one.
