Protect Your Outdoor Furniture From Bad Weather Your Way To Success
Wash and dry your outdoor furniture winter carefully using only a soft towel and rinse them off thoroughly with a mild detergent solution. You should never use a harsh detergent as this will damage the finish on your metal furniture. If you own plastic or vinyl cushions, you might not necessarily need to remove all the covers, but you will definitely want to clean them down with a soft microfiber towel slightly dampened with a little dishwashing liquid.
You should always store your wood furniture in a dry and cool place during the winter months. Avoid placing your outdoor furniture storage space near a fire, where it might catch on fire. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or using it as a table or bench when exposed to direct sun. Keep the wooden items out of the direct path of birds and animals, particularly cats, as these animals can chew on wood.
