How to Remove Mildew from Beach Chairs How to Remove Mildew from Beach Chairs
There is nothing worse than pulling those beach chairs out on the first summer day and discovering they are covered in mildew. Mildew, along with being unsightly, can also be dangerous. Not to worry. In this article, we will demonstrate how to remove mildew from beach chairs.
Step 1 - Use White Vinegar
Fill your spray bottle with white vinegar. There is no need to dilute it. Vinegar cleans very well without the wear and tear of harsher substances such as bleach. Spray the areas affected by the mildew.
Step 2 - Wipe the Chairs
Wipe the chairs down well with a cleaning sponge. Try to remove as much of the vinegar as you can.
Step 3 - Use Dish Soap
Take a few drops of your gentle dish cleaning soap, a tablespoon of lemon juice, and a tablespoon of baking soda and mix it with a gallon of hot water. Wash the chairs down well with this solution and rinse.
Step 4 - Dry the Chairs
To dry the chairs, leave them out in the open air and sun. Keeping them enclosed while wet or damp will just cause the mildew to build up again. You can use this cleaning method with most outdoor chairs and lawn chairs.
