How To Clean and Maintain All Kinds of Patio Furniture (www.familyhandyman.com)

Whether your patio furniture is made of metal, wood or plastic, keep it in top form with these tips for cleaning and maintaining.

Depending on how big your outdoor entertainment area is, you probably spent several hundred to several thousand dollars, maybe more, on patio furniture. And whether it’s been baked under a broiling sun, soaked with wet towels or jumped on by muddy dogs, patio furniture takes a beating unlike any other furniture. So it makes sense to protect your investment with a little TLC, in the form of cleaning and maintenance.

In the coldest, wettest seasons of the year, it’s best to store your patio furniture in a garage or shed. If that’s not possible, you can buy patio furniture covers to fit just about any type of outdoor furniture. If you live where harsh weather is a part of daily life — think the extreme desert heat of Las Vegas or the torrential rains of Florida — be sure to invest in patio furniture made to stand up to those tough conditions.

No matter what type of patio furniture you have, these pro tips will keep it in top condition.
