CluelessOne Reply February 15, 2012 at 11:05 pmWhat is the best way to clean outdoor furniture cushions? neverwrong24/7 Reply March 4, 2012 at 9:10 am Another way to do it is power washing them. That’s the way my husband does, it and it’s one less thing for me to do! Then you just ket them air dry in the sun. You could wash them in the tub, or scrub them with something, this way is quicker and very effective. They come out looking very new. Coralee Reply February 21, 2012 at 6:27 amIs it okay to leave outdoor furniture cushions outside in the rain?That’s probably a silly question. I imagine they are made for outdoors, but I wasn’t sure if they were okay even if theyweren’t covered when it rains. I didn’t want them to mildew or stay wet for days or anything…. MG Reply March 5, 2012 at 7:19 pm Depending on the fabric (sunbrella, acrylics, spun poly)… you should be able to keep your cushions out in the rain if you’re just talking an occasional sprinkle or light rain. They should be stored indoors during rainy seasons though. Shellie D Reply February 22, 2012 at 4:12 pmHow to clean outdoor furniture cushions with mold?I purchased a porch swing last year and recently discovered two spots that look dark like mold on them. The swingwas snowed this past winter and has now dried thoroughly. I was wondering if there is something I can use to spotclean to remove these stains that will not damage the fabric. The cushions are too large to put in my washing

Also there is an environmentally friendly product available at http://www.greenmoldcleaner.com/ BonitaSprings Reply February 24, 2012 at 4:03 amHow do I remove mold from my outdoor furniture cushions? They are made w/ outdoor fabric, yet still have moldI live is SouthWest Florida where mold is a major issue.Is there any way to treat them so they don’t continue to get moldgrowing on them. It’s costing a fortune to continuously replace them. eskie lover Reply March 6, 2012 at 2:30 pm I had the same problem and found DampRid Mold and Mildew Remover and Protector. It kills the mold that is already existing and prevents it from getting it again. I reapply a couple times during the summer and before I store them for the winter. Mine get hit with the automatic sprinklers everyday. You can find it at the Lowes. Wannabewriter Reply February 27, 2012 at 2:02 amDo I need to bring my Sunbrella outdoor furniture cushions inside, every time it rains? Patio Guy Reply March 7, 2012 at 7:19 pm No, but the cushions need to dry out completely to prevent mildew, and fading is the biggest issue.
Renee W Reply February 27, 2012 at 10:43 amHow do I deter squirrels from ruining my outdoor furniture cushions, this is the second set they’ve destroyed?the squirrels have used their claws to open up the fabric then they have proceded to tear out the stuffing to use fortheir nests. aeroposting Reply March 8, 2012 at 7:55 am You can get a chemical spray from the pet store that deters animals from chewing. It is like a bitter, unharmful chemical that animals find unpleasant. I have a pet squirrel and bought some to keep her from doing precisely what your outdoor squirrels are doing. She would chew up my couch pillows and use the stuffing to haul back in her cage to stuff in her nest box;0) It worked.

Which paint is best for this?Any other tips would be appreciated saaanen Reply March 6, 2012 at 1:05 pm If they’re vinyl, nothing will work. If they’re canvas, either latex or fabric paint.

There is a great new product by DampRId made to prevent and remove mold/mildew, is non toxic and fume free. I used it on my outdoor furniture cusions that are brightly colored and it removed the mildew. It is safe for all fabrics, will not fade or bleach them and leaves a protective residue that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew. It is an easy to use spray on application and you can find it at Lowes in the cleaning aisle for around $5. ang07 Reply March 7, 2012 at 1:06 pmHow to do I protect outdoor patio furniture w/cushions?We just bought a patio set which includes thick chair cushions. They say they have been treated to be water repellant.Do we need to move them every time it rains? What else should I do to protect the padding? Thanks. Anonymous Reply March 11, 2012 at 5:24 pm The padding is also designed to be fast drying, but if it is going to rain Friday night or Saturday morning and you know you’re going to use it Saturday afternoon, it might not dry fast enough for you. Being water repellent and fast drying are certainly a help, but they still tend to get a bit dirty out there. If I’m not going to be using them during the work week, I take them in and put them back on the weekend. If you notice after a few months that they are not as water repellent as they were, you can buy a spray can of the repellent to renew. Dia Reply March 9, 2012 at 12:21 amHow do you remove mildew spots from outdoor furniture cushions?The fabric is a print so I can not use any bleach/produts that contain bleach. dimpelmum Reply March 9, 2012 at 5:32 am Exposing a stained article to the sunlight will kill off the mildew/ mold, but if a stain is left , apply lemon juice to washable fabrics and leave to dry . A peroxide solution may also be used on washable fabrics
