Get Patio Furniture Ready for Spring

Whether your patio furniture has lived in the basement, garage, shed, or out on the deck or patio all winter, it probably needs a little bit of cleaning before it's ready to use again. Here are some suggestions for cleaning patio furniture from RealSimple.com:

  • Plastic – Wipe your plastic patio furniture with a clean cloth moistened with a solution of water and mild dishwashing soap. Rinse with water.
  • Wicker – Use a soft scrub brush and a solution of water and a mild, oil-based soap to clean between the canes. Rinse with a hose.
  • Wrought Iron – Like plastic patio furniture, wipe down with a clean cloth moistened with water and a mild dishwashing soap, then rinse with water.
  • Teak – Treat it like wicker, using a soft scrub brush and a mild, oil-based soap. Hose off.
  • Aluminum – Wipe with a clean cloth moistened with a solution of water and a mild dishwashing soap. To remove scuff marks, use a damp cloth and a small amount of a non-abrasive liquid cleanser like Soft Scrub. Be careful; harsh cleansers and stiff brushes will scratch the finish. Hose off to rinse.
