  1. Dust, grass stains, and dirt: Take a soft cloth or soft brush. A scrub brush or other stiff-bristled brush can scratch the surface, so don't use them. Wipe the dirt away and then rinse the area with a garden hose. Repeat as necessary. If you're using a cloth, wet it with plain water and wipe away accumulated debris.
  2. Mold and mildew: Mildew Check is a popular brand you can buy in a hardware store. Follow the instructions for use and be sure to wear protective gear. As you clean, use a sponge to agitate the dirty area then a soft, wet cloth to wipe it. Afterward, use your garden hose to rinse everything off.
  3. Oil or grease: Take a soft cloth and dip it into a mix of mild liquid dishwashing soap and water. Do not use harsh cleaners on fiber cement siding! You can mar the surface or harm the paint.
