White resin patio furniture can become stained from outdoor debris such as dirt and rain. Fallen leaves can stick to wet furniture leaving brown marks behind, while the wind can leave a thick coat of dust. Cleaning resin furniture involves using tools that do not scratch the surface. Washing resin furniture with the proper products and tools can bring back the shine.

  1. 1

    Place the white resin patio furniture onto a concrete driveway or in the yard away from the house. Wet the furniture with a garden hose or buckets of water.

  2. 2

    Sprinkle 2 tbsp of baking soda onto a wet sponge. Rub the sponge over the entire surface of the furniture. Work the sponge in between any grooves on the furniture. As the sponge becomes dry, wet it and apply additional backing soda to it. Continue scrubbing all the patio furniture.

  3. 3

    Rinse the furniture with the garden hose or buckets of water. Fill the bucket half way with cool water. Add 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach to the water.

  4. 4

    Dip a clean sponge into the bleach water and apply it to any stains not removed during the cleaning process. Allow the bleach to remain on the furniture for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse the furniture clean with cool water.

  5. 5

    Dry the furniture with old towels or set them in direct sunlight.

Tips and warnings

  • To add shine to resin furniture, apply a car wax to the surface. Buff clean with a rag after the wax has turned cloudy.
  • Use caution when applying bleach water to the furniture if you have them sitting in the yard; bleach will kill grass.
