So your patio furniture has been sitting in the rain and mud in the garden all winter. The sun is out and you finally get a chance to use it. The problem is that it”s pretty manky and looks like it might take a lot of work to get it back to its original freshness. Well fear not. A simple, cheap and effective cleaning … method is at hand.
All you need is
- some sodium carbonate (also called washing soda) and
- a bucket of hot water.
You can find sodium carbonate in the washing detergent section of most supermarkets or may already have some under the sink. Add about half a cup of sodium carbonate to about 4 litres of hot water in a bucket and stir. Apply to the furniture using a sponge. Wear some gloves to protect your hands. Leave for about ten minutes and then rinse off with warm water. Patio furniture should be as good as new!
