How To Clean Stains From Your Outdoor Cushions? With spring currently underway, it’s time to get back outdoors and socialise with family and friends in the comfort of your own garden. However, there can be pitfalls that you need to watch out for when using your own entertainment space, and red wine spills are the chief amongst these! Just a few spilled drops can permanently stain your beautiful, customised pattern… or so you thought. At Cushion Factory, our experts have put together this quick blog to offer some tips on how to remove stains from your cushions.

Steps to take immediately after the spillage occurs!

1. Use a cushion cleaner – a cushion cleaner is the best thing to have on hand for tackling red wine spillages. Spray it across the affected area and massage it in with a soft brush. While you should always follow the steps on the back of the cleaner, we suggest leaving time for the solution to soak into the cushion case before you rinse it off.

2. Make your own solution – it’s better to strike whilst the iron is hot, so if you don’t have any specialist cleaner on hand, we recommend that you follow these quick steps to create a homemade remedy.

First, keep the cushion damp by wetting it with warm water. Then, add some laundry detergent to lukewarm water and pour this into a spray bottle. If you don’t have a spray bottle, use a bowl and sprinkle the solution across the stain with a spoon. Next, grab a soft brush and work the detergent mixture into the stain in small circles. Don’t go mad scrubbing the area as you’re much more likely to spread the stain in this manner.

3. Put the cover in the wash – next, check your cushion’s label to see if it has any washing machine instructions. If applicable, throw the cushion case in the machine on the appropriate cycle.
