Clean, Protect, and Restore Your Vinyl Shutters

The season of spring is often associated with cleaning, but fall and early winter can also be a perfect time to do some of those outside cleaning projects.  Days filled with warm sun and cool air are great opportunities to clean, protect, and restore those vinyl shutters.

To clean your shutters follow these simple steps:

  1. Brush off all loose dirt and debris from your shutters. Remove this dry debris from the ground underneath the windows before you move unto the next steps to avoid a waterlogged mess.
  2. Use your garden hose to rinse the shutters thoroughly. This removes any remaining loose dirt the brush has failed to remove.
  3. Dip a mop into the bucket of 4 parts warm water and 1 part dish detergent. Rub the entire surface area of each shutter as thoroughly as possible. Do not allow the cleaning solution to dry. Use the hose to rinse the shutters clean at one window, before moving on to the next.
  4. Wipe the shutters clean with a microfiber mop. This eliminates any lingering marks.


Now that you’ve thoroughly cleaned your shutters restore and protect them with ReColor.  ReColor is a clear coating that restores original color and shine to multiple surfaces types instantly and it works perfect on shutters.  It’s easy to use and the shutters don’t have to be removed.  Simply remove the cloth from the ReColor package, dab some ReColor on and wipe over the target areas for a shiny new look!
