Well I didn't post with the intention of providing something interesting for people to read. I posted because I wanted to know if anyone knew how to save my tired old decking. The heading of my post makes the subject clear enough I think. Oh and I posted under - 'Off Topic' which would include the wonderful world of garden decking..I know it's not exciting but its the best I can do just now!

Brush, then wash it down, then apply either decking oil or I use Danish Oil. I re-oil it a couple of times a year and it looks good, at least to me.

I tried a specialist cleaner and a pressure washer...but what worked best was strong bleach from Wilko. I applied it liberally.....waited five minutes, scrubbed it with a hard bristle garden broom. Then hosed it down. Looks good and it was both cheap, and quick to do.
