Prepare For Fun in the Sun
When It's Time to Head Inside
After you’ve enjoyed a sunny afternoon outdoors, take a few minutes to clean up and put pieces away. Next time setting up for a day of play outdoors will be a breeze and your future self will thank you!
Give lounge chairs and daybeds a good rinse with a garden hose to remove any sweat or sunscreen after use. Wipe down chairs and table tops with a clean soft cloth dampened with soapy water. Gently brush away any spills or stains with a little water and a soft brush. Remove any padding or cushions and set pieces out to dry.
Once the furniture has completely dried, top each piece with its corresponding waterproof cover and store in a cool, dry place.
