Do your outdoor patio cushions have you singing the blues. Let me show you How to Clean Outdoor Cushions and save your money!
So, last week I spent days trying to convince Matt that we needed new outdoor cushions…I mean, they were sooo gross. They looked faded, had some sort of green algae like stuff on them, and they were not giving me the fabulous spring vibe that they usually do. But man, outdoor cushions are super expensive. I priced them out at three different stores, and the lowest I could spend to replace them was $250. Ummm…that’s not in the budget right now.
Just look at them! Do you see the nasty green stuff…this would not do!
Matt suggested that I use the pressure washer on them. I said no. I thought for sure a pressure washer would rip the cushions to shreds. Then I thought hmmm….maybe if I try it and they rip to shreds we wouldn’t have any choice but to buy new ones. I’m usually pretty smart this way! So, in an effort to prove Matt wrong and get this girl some new patio cushions, I broke out the pressure washer and got to work.
And…it worked! You know what, I’m glad. Once they were clean, I remembered how much I loved them in the first place…I had bought them because I loved them in the first place. YAY!
Here’s another example. I had these cushions on the wicker chairs in front of our house, and they were seriously headed to the trash. At the last minute, I pulled them off of the chairs and thought I’d give them a shot as well.
Take a look at that! I really thought that the strength of the pressure washer would be too much, but it worked perfectly. So, all I really needed was water. No soap, no scrubbing and no money lost! Whoop! Grab your dude’s pressure washer, or borrow your neighbors, or you could even rent one for around $25 and get your patio cushions clean!
