Step-by-Step Outdoor Cushion Cleaning Guide

  1. Vacuum or use a brush to remove loose dirt.
  2. Spray 303 Multi-Surface Cleaner on any spots or stains and work in with a brush or sponge.
  3. Prepare a cleaning solution of a quarter cup mild dish soap, with 1 gallon of lukewarm water.
  4. Let solution soak into fabric.
  5. Use a soft brush or sponge to clean.
  6. Rinse the cushions off thoroughly with a water hose.
  7. Set aside to air dry.
    Quick Tip - for faster drying, place your cushions on one side and lean them against the arm or back of your chair. This will allow your cushions to dry much faster than leaving them flat in the seat!
  8. When dry, spray 303 Fabric Guard to further protect your outdoor cushions.
