Inside: Clean your dirty patio cushions with this simple DIY cleaning hack! It freshens cushions that you can’t toss in the washing machine and it helps keep mold and bugs out.
I’m all about the simple cleaning hacks and nothing feels better than pulling out the patio furniture after a long winter stuck inside. But inevitably, the cushions are in need of a bit of TLC. Sometimes they get damp over the winter in storage, or sometimes we just don’t properly clean them before storing them at the end of the season.
We also make sure we pressure wash the deck and the siding on our house and I always spruce up the patio with some additional flowers and inexpensive decor. This year, we are committed to planting even more grass in the yard and it’s going to be so lush and amazing!
Either way, if you want to clean your patio cushions properly, here’s how you do it.
Mixing the Cleaning Solution
This solution uses the power of oxygen bleach along with stain boosting laundry detergent. I mix those together with dish soap in some warm water and then used elbow grease to just scrub down the cushions.
If you want to try using a hose, you could, but that could damage the foam in the cushions and it will take a lot longer to dry.
