Best Wood Deck/Fence Cleaner

I need a good cleaner that will clean the wood deck before I stain it with ready seal. Anyone have good luck with cleaners?

I plan to use the cleaner in combination with a light pressure wash.

IMO No need for cleaner. Just pressure wash with as much pressure as you can without raising the wood grain.
I used to use bleach before pressure washing, however, after trying without bleach I couldn't tell a difference.

This pretty much sums it up

only time you need to use a cleaner is if there is mildew or something that you need to kill and not just wash off. If no mildew just pressure wash it.

absolutely NEVER pressure wash. It will raise the grain, and result in splinters/rough decking. You can buy a Messmers 2 part cleaner that comes in powder form and you spray on, scub and wash off. The fist part cleans, second is a bleach/brightener.
