Chairs should be sent for storage after thorough cleaning

September is the time to prepare your summer cottage for winter, including cleaning and storing your garden furniture. White plastic chairs need special attention, as they may have acquired many stains over the summer.

According to experienced gardeners, it doesn't take much effort to restore their original appearance. You just need the right products. OBOZREVATEL tells you about the best life hacks for cleaning white plastic garden chairs.

White vinegar - cleaning and disinfecting

This product is good at removing stains from plastic without damaging it. For vinegar to work best, it should be diluted in equal proportions with warm water. It is better to apply the mixture with a cloth or sponge - the tool should be soft so as not to scratch the material. If necessary, the liquid can be left to act for several minutes. In addition to cleaning, white vinegar also disinfects chairs.

Baking soda against stains

An additional function of baking soda is to remove odors, which is important if, for example, the chair was used in a place where people smoked a lot. At the same time, it is a mild enough abrasive not to scratch the plastic during cleaning. To remove stains from a chair with baking soda, make a paste by gradually mixing the product with a little water until you get the desired consistency. Apply this paste to the stained area and leave it on for a few minutes, then gently rub the surface and rinse off the residue.

Lemon against mold

If your chairs have mold or mildew stains on them, which is possible if the summer is rainy or the garden furniture is in a humid place, lemon juice can be the solution. Simply take a fresh lemon, cut it open, and squeeze the juice onto the affected areas. After a few minutes, all you have to do is wipe the juice off with a paper towel and rinse with water.

Why do you need to wipe chairs after washing?

Whichever product you choose - one of those listed for solving specific problems or a standard soap in such cases - chairs should be wiped dry after washing. This is primarily to prevent hard water from staining them. Also, water droplets can act like a lens and increase the effect of sunlight on plastic, which can cause it to turn yellow. And such stains are much more difficult to deal with.
