    Cleaning Outdoor Furniture

    Although your patio furniture sits outside and gets rained on, there is no reason as to why it can’t stay clean. There are a few easy ways to make sure patio furniture cushions and other components are cleaned so that you have beautiful pieces to sit on.

    Proper care and cleaning also increases the lifespan of your pieces. In fact, companies like Wicker Paradise include care instructions with every piece they sell. If the furniture is clean, then it can brighten the entire area and make it feel like a comfortable place to relax.

    If you’re worried about leaving scratches on your furniture, then consider using baking soda and a little bit of vinegar. The baking soda can also be used on the cushions for outdoor furniture as it will remove any stains that are present without taking the color away. Gently apply the mixture on the furniture with a sponge before rinsing with warm water.

    While bleach is a little more abrasive, it does make white wicker furniture cushions and other materials brighter. You can mix the bleach with water if you don’t want the full strength. Make sure you wear gloves while cleaning the furniture with bleach as it can irritate the skin. You might be able to machine wash the covers if they are removable. If nothing else, you can rinse the cushions with hot water to remove the residue, and you’ll have a patio set that looks almost like new.
