Plastic furniture:
Simply spray the cleaner on it. And wipe down with the sponge or cloth. If necessary add vinegar and lemon juice for any stains. In the end, wipe it with a wet cloth and allow it to dry.

Cushions should always be brought in for the winter.  But if they have been left outside, you can clean tme to get them ready for Spring and Summer.  You can create a great cleaning mixture with basic household products. In a bucket of warm water, mix:
