White Haze on Colored Plastic Chairs

My dark green Adirondack plastic resin chairs have developed a white haze on them this season. They are not faded, and this haze seems to be from exposure to the elements, since they are not located under any type of rooftop. What is the best cleaner to get rid of the haze and restore these chairs?

I have this problem also, I wonder if a vinegar wash would work? (08/13/2005)

White Haze on Colored Plastic Resin Chairs

I also have the white discoloration on my previously dark green Adirondack plastic resin chairs. I tried vinegar, I tried vinyl siding cleaner & I tried scrubbing them in between each treatment with a stiff bristle brush. So far, nothing works. I was told at the store where I purchased the siding cleaner that I would probably have to prime them & then paint them. I have 9 of them & I really don't want to do that. I hope someone has a better idea. (07/13/2008)

I think it's fine scratches in the surface that look like white.

That explains why rubbing in oil seems to fix it.

You might try a bit harder 'filler' like guitar gloss. But it would probably still come off.

The permanent fix would be a hard resin like a car finish. But that would be more expensive than buying new plastic chairs

Also have problems with my hazy chairs. I had seen some renu product for cars I bet it would work great for our problem chairs, I just have to find it. In the meantime I'm going to use turtle shell car wax and buffed them up. I'll let you know if it works.
