First I quickly cleaned the stairs with the pressure washer. You can see that just by pressure washing it cleans a lot of the dark stuff.

To prepare the wood, I used a all in one wood cleaner that advertises it cleans, brightens and remove mold & mildew stains. This is kind of the result. Some places still have dark spots, but you can leave like that because our oil stain has color on it. Otherwise you can try to spray more or use a pressure washer. I think it a good idea to use a pressure washer to rinse the cleaner, so you can force it on stubborn stains. I

This is the first pass of the oil stain with the gun. Notice how we painted the wall of the house by mistake. Also, some residue of the paint went on top of our cars, so you need to be very careful when painting with a sprayer outdoors.
