Winterizing Your Outdoor Fire Features

Dec 17, 2020 | Tips & Troubleshooting

Outdoor furniture and Sunbrella fabric are made to last but spills, dirt and pollen are a reality.  Here are a few tips to care for your outdoor fabric.

One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella fabrics looking good is to brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics and wipe up spills or clean soon after a stain occurs. The quicker you clean spills and stains, the easier they can be to remove. 

Try This First…  With a New Spill or Stain on Your Sunbrella Fabric:

  • Blot (don’t rub) liquid spills with a clean, dry cloth. For oil-based spills, apply an absorbent such as corn starch, then remove with a straight edge. 
  • Spray on a mild cleaning solution of soap (such as Woolite® or Dawn®) and water. 
  • Rinse the fabric thoroughly to remove all soap residue. 
  • Air dry. 

Try This Next…  If Your First Try Doesn’t Get the Stain Completely Out:

Though Sunbrella fabrics can be used both outdoors and in, your cleaning methods should differ because of the fabrication and manufacturing of the furniture. We recommend using the appropriate cleaning instructions for your application.
