Care & Maintenance

All of our products are low-maintenance, and easy to upkeep.

Thank you for purchasing our sustainable outdoor furniture. In order to maintain our furniture, we recommend the following steps be taken in order to keep the products looking clean and new.

You can use the following products to clean and protect your furniture:

  • 303® Patio Furniture Protectant [this is the world’s most powerful UV screening product]
  • 303® Patio Furniture Cleaner [this product is specifically designed to clean resin and plastic furniture]
  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
  • Liquid bleach
  • Soapy water and a sponge [see basic cleaning instructions below]
  • Earth Scrub [see instructions below]

What to Avoid

Pressure Washers. When the nozzle is placed too close to the plastic it could chew and/or fray the plastic leaving a fuzzy look to the plastic and allowing atmospheric dirt and particles to get inside the plastic. Over time the furniture will look dirty and will never clean to its original look.

Basic Cleaning Instructions

Clean and sanitize

Follow these cleaning methods to spruce up your furniture fast.

Supplies Needed:

  • Dry vacuum cleaner
  • Mild dish soap
  • 5-gallon plastic bucket
  • Soft-bristle brush
  • Washcloth

(Optional) Liquid bleach


  • Quickly remove loose dirt and debris with the dry vacuum.
  • Mix the dish soap and warm water in the bucket.
  • (Optional step) To clean and sanitize, pour in a bit of bleach. We recommend 1 part bleach to 2 parts water.
  • Use a washcloth to apply the soapy water to the lumber and let it sit for a few minutes.
  • Scrub the surfaces using the soft-bristle brush to loosen any dirt or debris.
  • Rinse with clean water and let your furniture air dry.

Tip: Wear chemical-resistant gloves if you plan to use bleach.

  • In a mixing bowl, add 1 2/3 c. baking soda with 1/2 c. of liquid soap.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Add 2 tbsp. of vinegar.
  • Continue mixing until all the lumps are gone.
  • If you can pour it into the bottle easily, then you have the right consistency. If it is too thick, add more water.
