This week marks the official start of Summer and for me that means grilling out and loungeing on my back patio.But if your like me, you probably have not touched your outdoor furniture in about 8 months or so and before you can start enjoying your back yard you’ll want to make sure that your furniture is clean.
In this 4-minute video from Lowe’s, you’ll learn tricks to keep your outdoor furniture clean, and protected from the elements. All types of outdoor furniture are covered in the lesson including metal, resin-based, and wooden.
The offered tips include:

Furthermore, the instructional video includes tips for cleaning fabrics and canopies; and for shampooing an outdoor rug.
There’s lot of reasons to keep your outdoor furniture clean — health reasons among them — but it shouldn’t be lost that clean furniture will have a longer useful life than furniture that’s been neglected or ignored.
