Spring Cleaning Tip-  To clean the outside of your steel garage door here is a quick way to get that pollen and that North Carolina red clay off your door.
Items you will need: two zip lock bags, car wash (the kind with wax in it works great), a soft brush, a bucket, and water hose.
 
– First close your garage door then get 2 zip lock bags and place over the sensor eyes to protect them in case water gets in (better to be safe than sorry).
 – Then fill your bucket with the car wash detergent just as you where washing your car and wash down your door with the brush and soapy water.  You may need to wash rinse and repeat depending on how dirty your door is.
The great thing about using the soapy with wax is that it repels water and creates a barrier so that next time your door will clean up even better.  You actually use car wax on your door if you want for longer lasting protection.
