This is a post shows the ten steps on the process of how to clean a metal garage side door.

The plan; clean both side of the door and the edge wet with soap and water. Then start at the top of the door and work in an S-pattern make your way down the door using a sponge and soap. When one side is cleaned and done continue to the other side. If there are difficult scuff mark then use a Magic Erasers® to remove any dirt, smudge or oily residue.  

Step 1. Top right picture shows a Magic Erasers® carton purchased from a local Sam's Club. Sam's Club offers a variety pack of 9-white erasers
Step 2: Fig.1 through fig.3 shows both sides of the garage door that needs cleaning. Usually the use of scour powder and a regular sponge is used to wire around the locks on both sides. Sometimes there are marks that can't be removed and then it takes longer to get the door clean.
