How do you properly clean resin tables?
Resin tables are a popular furniture piece of choice, especially for the outdoors. People prefer them because of their lightweight and ease of maintenance. Unfortunately, not many people realize that resin is not resistant to staining and due to the fact that it is outdoors most of the times, the sources of possible stains are many. Here are a few things that you need to know about the nature of resin furniture and tips that can help you keep it clean and durable for a long time.
Most of the commercial cleaners available in the market are too abrasive on the surface of resin. Cleaning with them leads to ugly scratches and other marks being left on the surface of the table, these scratches trap more dirt, especially because the table is outdoors, and this eventually leads to even bigger stains.
A simple way to avoid this escalation of a simple cleaning problem is by replacing the commercial cleaners with baking soda and a soft sponge. Lightly sprinkle the top of the table with the baking soda and then clean thoroughly with the sponge until all the stains have disappeared. Rinse well and leave to dry when the table is clean.
With time, even the most well-maintained resin tables will start looking less glamorous than they did when you bought them. This is because the outdoors climate coats them with a film of stain which can be quite stubborn to remove. But you might be surprised at how effective bleach can be. Mix a mild detergent with a half cup of bleach in one gallon of water, and then use the mixture to clean the table. If it is white in color, you will notice an immediate improvement in its sheen and brightness, and you can keep using it for a few more years.
Vinegar is another of the most effective cleaning solutions for resin. You can use vinegar when your outdoor resin tables has a mildew problem.
You would be shocked to realize how fast mildew can grow on outdoor furniture, especially in areas of the country that experience a lot of hot and humid weather. While it is not common for mildew to attach to plastic, parts which border the ground have a tendency to accumulate a film of dirt. When you use vinegar to clean these parts of the table, it will kill the mildew, remove the film of dirt and also help keep the table free of the growth for a longer time afterwards.
