Cleaning Plastic Outdoor Furniture?

How do I clean those white plastic out door chairs? Mine are all dingy and I want to know if anyone has painted theirs with any luck? Except for how hard they are to keep clean, they are in good condition. I have literally scrubbed mine too many times. Help, please.

You can use the erasers, or scrub with sudsy pine sol water, but if you paint them, you must get paint just for plastic.

We drilled three small holes in the seat (triangular shape) so that the rain water would drain. Now I no longer have to constantly clean the seats.

I have used a magic eraser on mine and everything else too. I also have painted them but they just aren't the same. Much luck to you.

Have you got a chlorine swimming pool? Maybe a good friend has? If you have, drop your dirty white furniture in (no leaves etc) and leave for a while.


The chlorine bleaches them beautifully back to white.

I use Dow bathroom cleaner on mine. Spray, simply wipe with a "miracle"-type cloth and rinse with a hose. No scrubbing and they look like new. I usually Dow-spray one and let it set while I Dow-spray the next one. Go back to the first, wipe and rinse then continue. I do this every couple of years or so and they are still in like-new condition.

Has anyone tried using WD40 to clean vinyl furniture?
