Whether you had a brand new wooden dock built or are maintaining your existing one, it is essential to keep the dock clean. Wooden docks tend to require more maintenance than other materials, and cleaning it can be tricky if you do not have the right substances. If you are worried about using certain chemicals on your wood, there are ways to clean it with natural products.
Not only is a natural cleaner better for your environment, but it can be more cost-effective as well. Baking soda, for example, is excellent at removing stains and will not damage or discolor the wood. Vinegar and water are also a great combination that can be used for nearly anything.
There are also varieties of natural cleaners on the market that will do the job as well, but they still tend to be more expensive than the every-day pantry items listed above. These natural products also have high acidity and can make surfaces dangerously slippery, so the cost may not be worth the potential harm.
