How to Clean Your Patio Cushions Easily

140K Views
This time of the year we're all trying to decorate our homes cute for fall, but it's also important to start winterizing your outdoor patio furniture so that it's in prime condition for the spring. Today I want to show you how to clean your patio cushions easily with a simple soapy mixture and some steam! *steam is optional, but really helpful!

My cushions have sat outside all spring and summer, so they were pretty gross. Lots of water stains and stains from leaves sitting on them. So I started by making a mixture of water, borax, and Dawn in a bottle and mixing it well.

I sprayed it all over the cushion and let sit for about 20 minutes, then I pulled out my handy HomeRight AutoRight Steamer and put a nylon brush on the tip and really got to scrubbing all the stains.

I scrubbed a bunch, then rinsed them off with the hose and let them air dry in the sun for 24 hours. The cushions still have a few small spots, but they smell good and they are in much, much better condition than before!

      I don't have a steam cleaner either, but turn the garden hose on full blast.

    I have an outdoor set (I'm pretty sure just exactly like this) and I slip the covers off (prob. once a month) and wash them in the 30 min soak cycle with oxy clean in my washer. Mine's actually in the family room in my house...best thing I ever did
