Keep Your Patio Looking Good With Mean Green

Summer is here and cleaning the patio or deck is important before all those bbqs!

In my cleaning tool kit is Mean Green Super Strength for chairs. And Mean Green Auto and Garage is perfect for all those items stored in the garage like bikes and more.

From heavy duty wipes, to auto and garage, Mean Green has everything you need to get your home clean and sparkling this summer.


Also in my cleaning tool kit is bleach for those white plastic lawn chairs. It's easy, just wash it with some mild detergent mixed with 1/2 cup bleach in 1 gallon (3.7 liters) water. Rinse it clean, then air-dry.


If you live in a hot, humid climate, you’re probably no stranger to seeing mildew on your wooden decks and patio furniture. But before you reach for the bleach, try these milder vinegar-based solutions:

  • Keep some full-strength white vinegar in a recycled spray bottle and use it wherever you see any mildew growth. The stain will wipe right off most surfaces, and the vinegar will keep it from coming back for a while.
  • Remove mildew from wood decks and wood patio furniture by sponging them off with a solution of 1 cup ammonia, 1/2 cup white vinegar, and 1/4 cup baking soda mixed in 1 gallon (3.7 liters) water. Keep an old toothbrush on hand to work the solution into corners and other tight spaces.
  • To deodorize and inhibit mildew growth on outdoor plastic mesh furniture and patio umbrellas, mix 2 cups white vinegar and 2 tablespoons liquid dish soap in a bucket of hot water. Use a soft brush to work it into the grooves of the plastic as well as for scrubbing seat pads and umbrella fabric. Rinse with cold water; then dry in the sun. 

With these tips you will have a clean and welcoming backyard!
