Best Materials for Deck cleaning and staining

I am staining a green treated wood deck that has never been treated with anything else and is approximately 3 years old. Any advice on what cleaners/stains are the best?

Thank you.

Re: Best Materials for Deck cleaning and staining

I have had good results using Thompsons deck cleaner and a long handled deck brush. I have also used a mixture or TSP, bleach and water and that has worked well. Just make sure you rinse the deck off very well after cleaning and let it dry thoroughly before applying any stain/sealer?

Are you looking to use a tinted stain or just a clear sealer?
