    I find the oxi type products very helpful for mold and mildew removal on my outdoor chairs and cushions.

    I’ve been cleaning so many upholstery fabrics with Folex. It works amazing!

    If it already grimy, I would get a high pressure hose or pressure washer to blast it away.

    If it is in good shape, wet & forget outdoor is great for maintaining anything outdoor. I bought one for my parents a few years ago and it has brought many hours of enjoyment.

    If you don't' want to purchase a product, you can scrub with a mixture of baking soda & vinegar or peroxide, then wash off.

    If you don't have a power washer try oxi clean with a sprayer and rinse with a hose. That should remove most of your stains.

    You can always spray paint the canopy if there are mold or mildew stains you can't get out.

    Hi, hope this helps,

    Brush. You can use a stiff brush or broom to scrub the canopy cover and generate suds. This solution should take off stains and even mildew and mold well. Scrub canvas canopy covers in circular motions and rinse as you finishing scrubbing one section because these solutions should not dry up on the canvas.

    Blue Dawn power spray and hot water - wet scrub with the mixture and then rinse well

  • It probably depends on the material that the swing is made from and what kind of dirt you're trying to remove. You could spray it down with a hose or power washer.

    Hi! I usually start with a good rinse and then some hot soapy water and a scrub brush. Dawn dish detergent can clean almost anything! Good luck!

    Brush method with shop vac or at least the leaf blower, first.

    I always try to get the dirt off before making mud in between the fibers.

    Wash in Machine or sponge wash with suds, or if that doesn't work or can't be done, Paint it with chalk paint and then use a wax on top to seal it.

    Hi Cleaner Tips: I bring mine in during the winter, and wash it in the laundry tub with hot water, dawn and white vinegar. I let it soak for a couple of hours, scrub the icky bits, rinse and hang it to dry. As for the cushions, I remove them and clean them the same way. Some aren't removable, so I scrub them as is, with the same stuff, only I do it outside and then hose them off and let them dry in the sun before bringing them inside for the winter. I also wipe down the frame and put automobile wax on it for the winter. I used to take it all apart and bring it all in, but that got to be daunting. I just cover it with a tarp now :)

    Hi there: whatever you do do NOT use a power washer on the canvas. It will tear the fabric apart. Mine would not fit in the washer, so I Turned up the water heater and filled the tub with hot water and Dawn. Let it soak overnight. Next day after rinsing well in the tub, I put up a clothes line and let the canopy dri outdoors in the sun. The seat cushions can be washed in the washer. The ones without zippers I use the same process as the canopy.
