How to clean and disinfect your outdoor patio cushions

Blog provided by Wicker Paradise

Have you recently bought a set of replacement cushions for patio furniture? You might be wondering how you can clean and disinfect your outdoor replacement cushions now that the world is reacting to the challenges of COVID-19. Luckily, there are simple ways you can keep your outdoor cushions clean and safe for your family to use.

The most common way to clean outdoor cushions is by using a mix of water, detergent, and borax. People usually use around a quart or a gallon of water with one teaspoon of detergent and one tablespoon of borax. You can use a sponge or cloth to scrub your cushions with this solution, or you can use a spray bottle to apply it to your cushions’ surface. After this, wait for the solution to soak in before using your cushions again.

This will do an effective job of disinfecting your cushions, but if you want a stronger disinfectant, you might be able to use bleach. Fabrics don’t always react well to bleach, so you should only use this option once in a while if you’re sure your fabrics can handle it. Make sure your bleach is diluted by a gallon of water and apply it by scrubbing or spraying. Bleach may have stronger chemicals, but it can remove the toughest stains and molds, and the CDC names it as an effective disinfectant against COVID-19.

Make sure you have the cleanest and highest quality outdoor cushions during this season.
