How to Clean Patio Furniture

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. All opinions expressed are my own.

We store our patio furniture in the garage during the winter. It’s definitely seen better days, but for now it will have to do. Add on the wear and tear from a move from Nova Scotia to Ontario and you can imagine how it looks now. The white chairs were now a grimy brownish/grey. John said that they were fine, but I thought they looked so gross. No way was I sitting in them like that and let alone have guests sit there. Ick!
