    Are they just dirty or is there mildew as well?

    Powerwash is best. I've scrubbled my outdoor rubs with vinegar and dawn. It usually works for algae and mildew. My patio cushions I replace every other year. I give the. A quick vinegar, dawn wash not a real scrubbing like my rug. I rinse and it seems to freshen it up between seasons.

    I used Borax when I cleaned mine, simply made a solution of 1 quart warm water, 1 teaspoon Dawn dishwashing liquid, and 1 tablespoon Borax, scrubbed with a sponge. let them soak and rinsed with a hose. I hung them from the ties to dry. They turned out reasonably well, considering it was the first time they'd been washed in the probably 6 years I've had them.
