If you have pets, you know that they can make a mess, both inside your home and outside of it. Dogs who like to chew, especially puppies, can wreak havoc on your outdoor furniture if left unattended in your yard. If you have a dog who likes to chew, then it’s a good idea to invest in some wrought iron furniture that they won’t be able to chew and damage. 

Another thing to consider when thinking about your pets and your outdoor furniture is any outdoor pillows or seat cushions. Again, if you have a dog who likes to chew, then it’s a good idea to store them out of reach when they’re not in use. 

If one of your pets decides to make one of your outdoor cushions into their own personal potty, don’t worry, because you can clean them. First, be sure to soak up all of the liquid that you can with a dry, clean cloth. Then, check out the tags on your cushions to see if you can wash them; oftentimes, you can. 

If you can’t wash them in your washing machine, you can make a cleaning solution with 1 cup of water, 1 cup of white vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of dish detergent. Apply this solution to a clean cloth and then dab the stain until it’s removed. Soak up any remaining liquid with another clean, dry towel.

If your outdoor furniture has seen better days, be sure to come see us at Patio and Hearth Shop in Greenville, NC for an upgrade!
