Weather Resistant

Materials used for outdoor furniture and cushions can have a great deal of effect on how well they stand up to weather conditions. If you live in an area prone to heavy rain and snowfall, ensure the fabric and fillings of your patio chair cushions are waterproof so they retain their shape even after repeated exposure to moisture.

Waterproof outdoor cushions typically use a type of foam that allows water but not air through, with an added fabric weave or coating that repels moisture – ideal for those who use their outdoor furniture year-round without fear of their cushion covers becoming saturated and soggy.

Your outdoor furniture and cushions can benefit from additional longevity by protecting them from sun damage. UV rays from the sun can quickly degrade fabrics used in outdoor settings, so purchasing UV protective spray for your furniture may help shield it from harsh UV rays. Apply it directly onto the cushions or cover, helping shield against harsh sunlight rays.

When looking for patio chair cushions, it doesn’t hurt to purchase multiple colors to give yourself more options when switching up your look. For instance, bold styles such as Rave Cherry or Kiwi may suit a bold aesthetic while neutral options like Tortoise Wicker will fit right in with any backyard decor.

Easy to Clean

From melted ice cream to red wine, outdoor cushions often become stained. Luckily, however, most stains can be easily lifted with simple cleaning techniques; regular vacuuming with brush attachment and spot treatment of new stains as they occur will ensure that your outdoor furniture and cushion sets always look their best!

If your cushion has a stubborn stain, make sure it is completely dry before treating it with natural detergent and oxygen bleach solutions. First vacuum using the brush attachment with cool water running. Gently scrub using sponge or soft bristle brush attachment until all loose dirt has been removed from fabric surface. Using damp microfiber cloth application of cleaner to affected area (allowing 30 minutes before brush or sponge scrub is performed to scrub stained area off), allow solution to sit until stain dries then repeat steps 1 through 4.

Most cushions can be machine washed on the mild soap or laundry detergent setting for optimal cleaning results, so be sure to read both their label and manufacturer website to ascertain any restrictions for washing them. If covers are removable, be sure to clean them separately from their foam inners for washing purposes. After each cycle is complete, be sure to fully rinse each cushion thoroughly to eliminate soap residue build-up before air drying your cushions.

Oil stains are another common affliction to outdoor cushions. From sunscreen and bug spray, to food products like chocolate sauce or even food-grade oil based solutions like cornstarch or baking soda powders containing absorbent powders such as magnesium carbonate. Oil can stain fabric surfaces, making outdoor cushions slippery when in contact with liquid substances such as sunscreen, bug spray or food. Before trying to clean a stain with soapy solutions like washing with soapy water alone. Before beginning any attempt at cleaning up an oil stain first remove excess oil with absorbent powders such as cornstarch or baking soda powder first to absorb any additional grime that might collect underneath.

To properly clean cushions, begin by vacuuming pillows and furniture with a brush attachment to remove loose dirt. Next, wash any removable covers using mild laundry detergent or natural cleaner on a gentle cycle in your washing machine if they can be. Otherwise make a cleaning solution using 1/4 cup mild soap per gallon of warm water to spot treat stains as necessary before rinsing out and air drying on sunny days afterwards.

Easy to Maintain

Cushions and pillows made of fabrics specifically engineered for outdoor use will better withstand the elements. Performance fabric is typically engineered to withstand sun damage, stains, moisture accumulation, mildew growth and dirt build-up – plus its durability may extend its useful lifespan longer than other materials.

Keep your outdoor cushions and pillows looking their best by regularly wiping them down with a garden hose, using this method to remove most surface dirt and debris. For any stains that occur, clean up promptly using warm soapy water sponge and clean cloth so as not to set in. Doing this will prevent future staining from setting in and becoming harder to remove.

Rotating cushions and pillows regularly is another effective way to ensure their optimal condition. This could involve moving them around, flipping them over or exchanging places with other pieces of furniture in the area – anything that ensures all surfaces receive even sunlight exposure while also decreasing wear in one particular spot.

As well as regularly cleaning cushions and pillows, it is also wise to cover them when not in use. This will prevent them from becoming damp and discolored during rainstorms as well as keeping leaves and other debris from wind-blown into crevices where insects could hide out.

Keep your cushions stored away when not in use; this will protect them from mould and mildew as well as protecting them from harsh winter weather conditions. If your cushions are non-removable, use a steam cleaner to disinfect them thoroughly to eliminate any bacteria, germs or fungi living inside – this should be done once or twice per season or whenever necessary.
