Both white plastic chairs and tables that are usually kept in the garden tend to get dirty easily. Immediately they take on a worn look and the white turns to a dirty gray. There are a few tricks to restore the lost luster of white garden chairs and tables.
First of all, it is important to be cautious. If we already know that chairs and tables are prone to staining, the best thing we can do is to take preventive measures so that we don’t have to waste a lot of time restoring their original look and color. Ideally, when the winter season comes, let’s store them in a protected place inside the house whenever possible. In case this option is not possible, it is convenient to cover them well. Simply being outdoors will damage the material they are made of.
To cover them you can buy waterproof plastic tarps that you will find in specialty stores. You just need to cover them well and use ropes to keep the plastic wrap tied down.
Dirty garden chairs and table: you only need to do this to make them white again!
To clean these white garden furniture you can use a very inexpensive method, which consists only of preparing a basin with warm water and white cleaning vinegar, a very useful product when you need to remove deep dirt or grease. Then, with a straw, you will have to scrub until you get the desired whiteness. You must then rinse with cold water and finally wipe dry with a dry cloth.
Instead of this vinegar preparation, you can also use organic Soap. Dissolve this natural ingredient in warm water (two tablespoons of soap will suffice). Once you have prepared the soapy water you should do as in the previous case: scrub and rinse until you can remove all the dirt.
Another option in case the stains are very persistent is to use ammonia diluted in not very hot water and a little detergent. This mixture is very effective when there is a lot of dirt or grease.
In all cases it is advisable to wear gloves to protect your hands from the chemicals, especially if you opt for ammonia, which is a more aggressive product.
