Sunbrella Outdoor Cushions

If you have outdoor cushions made of Sunbrella fabric, you know they’re built to last. But even the most durable fabric will eventually show signs of wear and tear – not to mention dirt and grime from being outdoors. To help you keep your Sunbrella cushions looking brand new, our team have listed some tips below on how to clean them.

Why is it important to clean your Sunbrella outdoor cushions?

It’s important to clean your outdoor cushions for several reasons. First, they’ll last longer if you keep them clean. This is because you’re removing the chance for mould to fester. Secondly, it’s more hygienic to sit on clean cushions – they’re often more comfortable too! And third, Sunbrella outdoor cushions are made to resist stains and mildew, so cleaning them regularly will ensure they continue to look their best.

What you need

Fortunately, cleaning your outdoor cushions is a relatively simple process. In most cases, all you’ll need is some mild soap, water, and a little elbow grease.

Step 1: Remove loose dirt

Start by removing any loose dirt or debris from the surface of the fabric. A soft brush or vacuum attachment can be helpful for this step.

Step 2: Treat stubborn stains

If there are any stubborn stains, treat them with a mild soap or detergent. Ideally, use a spray bottle to cover the cushions evenly and use a brush or a sponge to work the product in. Once you’ve built up a lather, rinse the cushion thoroughly.

Step 3: Machine wash

Sunbrella outdoor cushions can be machine washed on a gentle cycle, using cool water and a mild detergent. This helps to keep the entire cushion nice and fresh.

Step 4: Mildew prevention

To prevent mildew growth, air dry the cushions or tumble dry them on a low heat. Do not iron or steam Sunbrella fabrics as this may cause damage to the fabric.
