Is there any good way to make white vinyl siding look nice & clean again? Had white vinyl put on several years ago & despite cleaning it with soap & water the white still looks dull, 'greyish'!

Can vinyl siding be painted? Wish it would get nice & white again!

I wouldn't paint it. I'd hire a professional power washer company. Definitely don't mess around with bleach. I tried it years ago and badly damaged my lungs with the fumes.

I googled power washing alum siding and came up with this. I think the printed version is below the video. It is very important to wash from above so water doesn't get in the seems.

There was a story in the Washington post that realtors in Maryland were calling the greyness a "patina" and using it as a selling point.
