Cleaning garden cushions with mild stains
Option 1: Fabric cleaner
For tougher-to-remove stains, a specialized fabric cleaner can provide the solution. Simply spray the outdoor cushion stains with the cleaner, allowing it to sit for a few minutes. Then, gently blot the stain with a damp, lukewarm cloth. Afterwards, let the cushion air dry, and it will be as good as new in no time.
Option 2: Baking soda
If your garden cushion has a light, colourfast fabric, you can also clean more stubborn stains with baking soda. A mixture of baking soda and water creates a highly effective cleaning solution. Apply the mixture to the stain and then blot it with a slightly damp cloth. Let the cushion air dry outside afterwards.
Please keep in mind that baking soda is a natural bleaching agent. If used on dark and non-colourfast fabrics, it can cause bleached spots. Therefore, make sure to check your garden cushion’s label beforehand. If uncertain, it’s advisable to test it on the bottom of the cushion first.
