Cleaning stall walls????

I have a new barn and I want to keep it looking nice. The wood is dusty and pooped on ect... What is the best way to clean them? Is there a wood cleaner that will clean and condition the wood? I spray the stall fronts with pledge but to do all the walls would be very time consuming and very expensive...

A lot of the time a stiff brush and some dish detergent in water will work. Use lots of water and scrub hard!

First - dilute bleach in water and scrub with brush

Second - take murphy's oil soap and dilute with warm water - wash with rag and let dry

The bleach will take off all of the crud and the murphy's will condition the wood

I would think the bleach would "bleach" the wood (they are stained a dark mahogany)... I will try the murphy's though.

It might - - dish soap and water may work well for removing the crud, then

If you have access or can get access to a pressure washer, this will highly useful! It will thoroughly clean the walls and get them back to their natural color.
