The Best Way To Clean Patio Cushions

Cleaning Patio Cushions With Powerizer Complete

The season for outdoor living is in full effect. Whether your outdoor space is simply a balcony or the front porch or your very own backyard oasis, the goal should be to spend more time outside this summer.  Let’s face it; you may have spent a small fortune on outdoor furniture, making sure your backyard is just as stylish as your living room.  All in pursuit of the perfect space for soaking up rays or gazing at the moon and starlight.  Regardless, it can be a constant chore maintaining your outdoor furnishings, especially patio cushions.  

Your patio furniture can vary in structure from wicker, plastic, wood, and even metal.  But a comfy cushion makes all the difference in the world. However, pillows accumulate lots of dirt and debris from being left out in the elements. Also, though most of the time the fabric is weather resistant, it’s still not dirt or mess-proof.  Before you can relax they must be cleaned.  No one wants to touch dirty surfaces and certainly won’t appreciate dirt on their bright summer garments. Help is one click away.  

Powerizer cleans everything dirty, even your outdoor cushions.

Here are simple steps to cleaning your Patio Cushions

The First Step is to gather your cleaning tools. Here is what you will need:

  1. Powerizer Complete
  2. Hand-sized dish scrubber
  3. Bathtub, Sink or Basin to soak fabrics
  4. 16 oz Squeeze bottle for making a Pre-Treat solution

Next Step is to mix your cleaning solutions.  Here are the dosages we recommend:

Wash solution = one (1) scoop of Powerizer for a large load of cushions in the laundry machine

Pre-treat solution = one (1) scoop of Powerizer to 16 oz of warm water mixed in a squeeze bottle

Remove the cushions from the foam inserts.  Do this outdoors or on a hard surface. The foam batting usually makes a mess, especially if it has started to fall apart.  Sweeping up will be much easier. 

Apply the pre-treat solution to the dirtiest areas, saturate the fabric and use a scrubber to lift the stains. This is especially helpful for food and drink stains that may have been baked in the sun over. We suggest either soaking in a deep sink or the bathtub after first Pre-treating them with Powerizer.

After scrubbing and pre-treating your cushion covers, they can continue to soak for up 8 hours. The stain lifting ingredients in the formula will continue to work on the stains. However, the color safe bleach will brighten your colored fabrics and work effectively to whiten your fabrics.

When you think most of the stains have lifted, you can rinse them or toss them in the laundry machine. Sometimes just a rinse is needed and other times you might want to run a full cycle if stains are still present.

Lastly, hang the cushion covers out to air dry.

Powerizer Complete-a must try

Best detergent I have ever used! My dishes are spotless and my clothes have the freshest scent! So impressed.

Awesome stuff

A to order some of the Power Riser for dishwasher and laundry I was skeptical but ordered it and wow it is everything and then some. It gets my clothes much cleaner and my dishes perfectly clean and keeps the dishwasher shiny and bright. If I have to say something negative about it, it would be the smell it is quite strong and takes over the house for a little while but then it goes away thankfully. It just smells very clean.

Love it.

My dog had cancer of her jawbone. I made her drool diluted blood and when she ate she would bleed. This detergent would get the blood off of any material I had that she bled on. I was so happy and impressed. Sme of it could not be bleached.

Powerizer Complete All Pupose Home Cleaner is Exactly that!

I love Powerizer Complete Multi-Purpose Detergent and Cleaner! Instead of buying muliple cleaners,I only need this product. I have used it in the laundry (it does a fantastic job on ALL my clothes!) in my dishwasher(no streaks,no spots) and I have used it in my kitchen (cleans my stove and counters like you wouldn't believe!) I have already ordered another 3lb.bag. By the way it has an easy-close bag too that is really nice. The bag takes up less space than my old bottled detergent did. This is a great product. Thanks!
