Plant friendly path cleaner

Hi all,

Just looking for suggestions of a plant friendly path cleaner. I have a concrete path at front of my house loading up to front door but have a low hedge on one side and some border plants to other side and don't want to use anything that would effect these with any runoff.

Is there anything i could use here to clean up the concrete path. Perhaps a homemade suggestion as i cannot find anything commerically image

    Hot soapy water and scrubbing brush. And some elbow grease!

    Every couple of years I use a bucket of cold water with a glug of bleach and a yard broom on my patio.

    It doesn't come up like new, but it does make a big difference

    Oh - maybe not then.
    My patio doesn't have any plants around it.
    Sorry - back to the elbow grease!  - Unless you can borrow a pressure cleaner
