Wood furniture

For wood furniture, mix 1 teaspoon mild soap (like Woolite or a basic dish soap) and 1 quart water together for an all-purpose cleaning solution. Wipe down the furniture with the solution and a soft cloth. Use a stiff-bristle brush to remove and milder or mold spots. Rinse well. For extra protection against damage, apply a water sealer.

Plastic furniture

This is the easiest of all. Just wipe clean with the same soap solution used for wood chairs, then hose off and dry.

Metal chairs

Use the same soap solution and a soft cloth, but work in sections and wipe them dry immediately to prevent rust.

Wicker furniture

To clean wicker, use the upholstery attachment of a vacuum cleaner to first remove dirt lodged in the fibers, then wipe down with the same soap solution, shake to get as much water out as possible and let dry.

Outdoor fabric cushions

Use a stiff-bristled brush to remove dirt and any other particles from the cushions. Spray the cushion liberally with the soap solution. Let sit for 20 minutes, then rinse with a garden hose and let dry. To remove stains, spray the soap mixture on the stain and blot with a microfiber cloth. Repeat if necessary.

Zipper covers

Zippered fabric cushion covers can be machine-washed on cold, but shouldn’t be put in the dryer. Instead, put the wet covers back on the insert and let them dry together for a better fit.
