Hose off and scrub medium to large landscape rocks with a nylon, stiff-bristle brush. Use plain water and rinse the area well when finished. This is an excellent way to remove caked-on mud and bird droppings. Add a squirt of two of dish detergent to your bucket of water to help remove stubborn stains or dirt.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you get dust off rocks?
Add 1/4 cup of bleach and stir. Let the rocks soak for about two days. If stains, dirt or grit still remain on the rocks, apply denture cleaner or a paste made from baking soda and water and scrub them with a toothbrush or small nylon bristle brush.
Is there any way to get rid of dust in my yard?
Grass seeds, however, take time to grow, and natural grass lawns take a lot of time and work to become well established, so this is definitely not a quick fix. There is still soil at the bottom of those grass blades, so you will see a reduction in dust and dirt, but you might not see the significant impact for which you were hoping.
When to use rock dust in your garden?
When you garden in incomplete soil that doesn’t contain all the various inorganic elements like rocks, silt, and clay, you need to garden in a different way than you would in soil. The chemistry of those planting mixes is completely different than natural soil.
