A few years ago, I might’ve called my hobby of going through before-and-after power washing pics my guilty pleasure. But now? Not so much. I need a more accurate term; this seemingly mundane activity has become the king of the ‘oddly satisfying’ genre. A sort of internet culture mainstream, if you will.

I’d like Bored Panda to take some credit for it, after all, we’ve shown how much pleasure cleaning can bring numerous times (for example, here, here, and here). But this time, we’re mostly just the middlemen, and the majority of the praise should go to this subreddit.

With that being said, we did scroll through its posts far and wide to select the very best this online community has to offer, and believe me, when you’re talking about 1.135 million power washing aficionados, there’s plenty of content to scour through. From forgotten benches to neglected patios, and old town squares, here are some of the best pictures we’ve found!
