Maintaining your outdoor patio furnishings with a fresh new feel

Summer's right around the corner, and patio spaces are the best when it comes to enjoying and relaxing and entertaining. However in maintaining your furnishings you want to provide them with a fresh new feel each year so that they last in years to come. Fabrics and finishes are manufactured nowadays with great durability, however here are some things you can do to help maintain it. Dusting off surface dirt with mild detergent and water is good for cushions, or if they're removable you can toss them in the washer to keep them bright and cheery. If you have teak finishes, a small bristle brush used with mild detergent and water to keep of mildew, dirt and grime does wonders. Even light oiling your teak would provide a shiny new look. Metal finishes if chipped can be sanded down and repainted or varnished if needed. And of course a good water blast and rinse in a cloth saturated in plain water.
