How Do I Clean Outdoor Fabric?


Clean Outdoor Fabric

We’ve made it through half the summer, and your patio has been plenty busy with barbeques, guests, and storms. Are your chairs, outdoor pillows, and umbrella looking a little worn, too? Here’s how to clean outdoor fabric.

How to Clean Outdoor Fabric

Read the Instructions

As always, see if there are specific instructions for cleaning certain items. You might be pleased to see some of your outdoor fabrics can be machine washed.

When Possible, Remove Padding

Most of the time, the cleaning is going to require liquid, which can seep into the padding and create the perfect environment for mold. If your outdoor cushions or pillows have a way to remove the cover, do so.

Use the Most Gentle Cleaner Possible

As with any fabric cleaning, the most gentle cleaner is the best option. Mix 1/4 cup of liquid detergent with one gallon of water and gently work the solution into the fabric until bubbles form. Then rinse thoroughly.

Let Dry Completely

The good news is that this time of year provides plenty of sunshine to help your fabrics dry quickly. Let your fabrics completely dry before putting them back to use.
