With the nice weather comes your patio furniture. It looks great, but it's prone to stains that can be difficult to remove. How to clean cushions without ruining them? This is what we're going to go over so you can tackle cleaning outdoor cushions on your own and keep your furniture looking like new.
The very first thing you want to do when cleaning cushions is to take a glance at the tag. The tag usually has very specific instructions on what you can and can't do. If there are no specific requirements, you can move on to cleaning them with products you have in the house. Obviously, if there are instructions, follow them to avoid doing the wrong thing and damaging your cushions.
Sometimes, it's easier to wash your patio furniture by hand or spot clean it. You can mix up a simple solution by combining a teaspoon of mild dish soap with a teaspoon of Borax into a quart of warm water. Put this solution in a spray bottle and saturate the areas you want to clean. Rinse thoroughly after around 15 minutes, and then let them air dry.
If your patio furniture comes with removable cushion covers, you can clean them in the washing machine. Remove the covers and give them a good shake to remove any stuck-in debris. If you see any stains, work a pre-treatment into the fabric and toss the cushion covers into your washing machine. When the washing cycle is done, you can leave the covers out to air dry, or get them almost dry in the dryer. Remove them from the washing line, airer or dryer, and put them back over your furniture before they dry completely, so they keep their shape.
If you're cleaning outdoor cushions, you're likely to come across stains that you wouldn't normally see with your indoor fabric cushion covers. However, you can make a cushion cleaner and get most of the marks out with a little bit of scrubbing.
