    I've washed several vinyl houses and had what appears to be residual rust streaks from the nails behind the siding. I seen on here some do add this to their SH and want to know what chem is being used for this....

    Hand wipe with a microfiber towel wetted with diluted house wash. I have found that this therapy helps one to learn the importance of not shooting a bunch of water behind siding. Wipe gently so as to not mess up the patina.

    After a while, you'll start to get a feel for which house is likely to produce "leakers" and be more careful to avoid them.

    You could also mist the area with hypo from a pump up and gently rinse.
