How to clean outdoor fabrics?

Fabrics such as Sunbrella® fabrics are engineered to withstand outdoor elements with the highest level of design and performance. For easy cleaning of durable fabrics follow these steps:

  1. Brush off loose dirt.
  2. Spray on a cleaning solution made of water and mild soap.
  3. Use a soft bristle brush to clean.
  4. Allow cleaning solution to soak into the fabric.
  5. Rinse thoroughly  until all soap residue is removed.
  6. Air dry.

To remove mildew from fabrics, soak a sponge in a solution of 1/2 cup borax dissolved in 2 cups hot water, and rub it into the affected areas. Let it soak in for several hours until the stain disappears, then rinse well. For Sunbrella® fabrics, you can use ¼ dish soap, 1 cup bleach with 1 gallon of water. Rinse well.
