How to refresh patio cushions

Designing a beautiful outdoor area can take a lot of time to get right, but once you have your patio or garden how you want it, you’ll be glad for the work you put in. Once you’ve perfected the space then, the last thing you want is for your furniture and cushions to become damaged, but thanks to the Aussie climate, this is often unavoidable. To help combat this issue, read on for three tips on how to refresh your outdoor patio cushions.

1. Hose them down

If you can’t remove the covers from your outdoor seat cushions, you should start by using a vacuum cleaner or brush to get rid of any loose dirt, paying special attention to seams and crevices. Next, spray them with a suitable cleaning solution and then use a hose to wash them down.

2. Remove any stains

If your outdoor cushions have some more problematic stains, you could try spraying them with a vinegar and water solution.  Which is simple to put together at home. Leave this to sit for 20 minutes and then use a brush to scrub any stained areas before rinsing the solution away. If this doesn’t work, you will need to try stronger, more specific cleaning products, especially for things such as grass stains. If you can remove the cushion covers, check the label and see if you can machine or hand wash them.

3. Put them in storage

Once the summer season comes to an end and you’re not spending nearly as much time outdoors, you might want to put your outdoor bench cushions into storage, as this will help protect them from the elements. It’s a good idea to wash them before packing them away for the winter too, as this will help to keep them fresh and means they’re good to use when summer rolls around again.
