Cleaning the furniture inside your house can be a real pain. With people constantly sitting on the furniture, it has to handle a large amount of wear and tear, especially if people eat while sitting on it as well. Yard furniture can be even more frustrating to clean, because along with having to constantly deal with the same problems that happen with indoor furniture, you have to deal with dirt, wind, and all the other elements. If you want an easier way to deal with the filth that accumulates on your lawn, yard, and pool furniture, just try this handy little hint.

All you will need to use to clean up your lawn furniture is a solution of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda), and water. Mix about a quarter cup of the baking soda in one quart of warm water. This solution is cheap and very effective.

Once you have made your solution of baking soda and water, get a rag that you do not mind getting a little dirty. Dip the rag into the solution and wipe it over the yard furniture. Make sure to put the furniture in a place that you do not mind getting wet, and rinse everything clean. If the stains will not come off, try scrubbing a little harder, and rinse again. This should be enough to get off all but the toughest stains, and it will also not leave any residue that can be harmful to you or your environment.

The best part about using baking soda while cleaning is that it will not only clean your furniture, but it will also deodorize it. This will help remove any bad smells that may be emanating from your furniture. With this little cleaning tip, you will find that cleaning your lawn furniture is easier than you ever could imagine.
