Cushions need more vigorous cleaning than I achieved with mild soap, water & cloth
Lauren — Jan 31, 2017 01:27AM PST
In regard to cleaning our outdoor furniture cushions (that are exposed to rain and such) more meticulously than the Care & Maintenance instructions of regular cleaning using mild soap, water & a cloth or a soft bristle brush. Retailer lists Cover: SPUNCRYLIC, Content:100% Solution Dyed Polyester, Color:ECRU.
Are there ANY recommendations for cleaning the white fabric on the cushions more thoroughly, please?

Thank you for contacting Emerald Home Furnishings.
We recommend that a seasonal preventive maintenance is done both at the beginning and the end of each season.
The fabric/cushions should be cleaned using a soft bristle brush with a dilute bleach solution. 1 cup of bleach per gallon of water mixed with dish soap. This will remove more stubborn dirt.
The cushions must be rinsed with a hose until soap is gone and air dried on their side on a sunny day. We recommend using gloves.
If these steps are taken at the beginning and end of each season, before the cushions are covered or stored for the winter, it will help maintain the original cushion color.
