bought four white resin chairs at a yard sale. They are nice and sturdy, but when I started using them I found that a white chalk like film rubs off them onto my hands and clothing. Does anybody know of a way to stop this? Thanks!

I waxed the old resin chair I found that was powdery and it seemed to help. Also, there are good spray paints out there now for resin/plastic. Flat surfaces, like tables, you can cover with contact paper. (05/24/2006)
I spray painted some resin flower boxes with paint for plastic. Several companies have it now in a variety of colors. I would recommend Krylon brand because it does not drip. (05/25/2006)

I had the same grey-black speckle-spots on my white resin patio furniture. I used elbow grease and Soft Scrub, but wore my arm out scrubbing, so I got out a paintbrush and applied straight bleach. Fast, easy and cheap! It worked like a charm. (08/30/2007)
If you power wash them it removes the powdery film that accumulates on the chairs. (06/04/2008)
I used Barkeepers Friend and elbow grease. It worked well, removing almost all stains. I did hose off several times and dried with an old terry towel. They will need to be wiped off again to remove excess residual white powder from cleaner. (08/15/2008)
I just tried the suggestion of using straight bleach and my 4 chairs were completely clean in just 10 minutes. These had black spots for 3 years, I can't believe I didn't check here sooner. Thank you so much! (08/15/2008)
