@jmg8tor said in a TikTok video online: “ I’m gonna show you how to clean your old wooden fences with pool chlorine and water.”

The DIY fan grabs a pump sprayer and mixes equal parts of water and chlorine for his magic mixture. 

He said: “Okay? Take you a pump sprayer. Mix 50% water, 50% pool chlorine.”

“All you gotta do is spray it directly on the fence.”

The DIY pro confessed he had never cleaned his garden fence before. 

He said: “This fence is probably 25 years old that’s never been cleaned.”

“And you just want to soak it down with the bleach and water, just like this.”

The DIY fan explained this mixture will eat away at the dirt on your wooden fence.  

He said: “And what it’s gonna do, it’s gonna eat that stuff away. It’s gonna bring the wood back to its natural colour.”

“It doesn’t take long. After you get it soaked in there, the key is to rinse it with water.”


For the final step grab a hose and water down your cleaned fence. 

The DIY whizz said: “I use a little pump spray. The best thing to use the hose. I’m just way down here. I don’t have access to a hose.”

“This is how you do it. You get it all rinsed off and that woods gonna look like new.” 

The DIY fan warned viewers they must let their fence dry for a few days before applying anything to their fence. 

He said: “Let it dry a couple days and you can put some paint on it or some stain. The easiest thing you’ll ever do.”

The fence cleaning hack racked up over 6.6 million views online and people were stunned at how effective the hack was.
