Warm to hot water

 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 One

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 Two

Wipe the chairs down well with a cleaning sponge. Try to remove as much of the vinegar as you can. 

Step Three

Take a few drops of your gentle dish cleaning soap, a table spoon of lemon juice, a table spoon of baking soda and mix it with a gallon of hot water. Wash the chairs down well with this solution and rinse. 

Step Four

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.
