// Why We Never Use Soap To Clean Solar Panels

Soaps can leave a film or residue that not only shades panels like the dirt that was just washed off, but it can also encourage dirt to stick and build up faster.

The Best Way To Clean Your Solar Panels

One thing learned during the pandemic was the effectiveness of soap and water — regularly washing our hands was our best defense. While dirty solar panels do benefit from a regular washing to ward off reduced output and efficiency, soap isn’t the answer.

Solar Panel Manual Cleaning

You may find that manual cleaning is necessary if there is a buildup of tree debris, dust, or bird droppings atop your panels. In this situation, simply rinse the panels with a hose, and if necessary, wipe them down using a small amount of Glass Gleam Cleaner and a soft sponge or cloth. Be sure not to use anything abrasive, as it can damage the solar panels. Learn about Solar Panel Cleaning Brushes and see recommended products
