    Default Black Streaks on Gutters

    Does anyone know how to get rid of those black streaks on gutters? I tried pressure washing, bleach, Krud Kutter, soap... No luck.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you all!

    I use simple green pro HD. It's a purple color available at Home Depot.

    Hmm, I recently did gutters with the black streaks (tiger striping) using Krud Kutter full strength and a white scrubbing pad. It came off easy with a little back and forth scrubbing then wiping clean with a large rag. I did it in full sun so could only do about two feet at a time to keep it from drying before wiping.

    Is the gutter vinyl or aluminum?

    Wow that's to much work. Get some gutter grenade and a 10" truck wash brush. Brush it on let it dwell a couple minutes brush again and rinse it off. Use an extension pole on the brush and you can do 50' of gutters in 10 minutes.

    No dwell time with gutter brite. Just gently apply with a scrub brush and rinse. Little effort and cheaper than F13. Works 300% better imo.

    We've had success using Sprayway and a magic eraser.
