Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to show you how to clean plastic furniture. If you have plastic furniture outdoors it's pretty easy to clean if you use a hose, you know, and a bucket of water and soap, but indoors, and if it's cold outside you want to do it in your bathtub. It's a bigger area. It's not going to make a big mess. So, if you had somethin' like this stool that needs to be cleaned you just want to put some water in the bathtub. Make it bubble up a little bit, you know. Put some some sort of dilutable cleaner in there with it. I've turned the water off, you know, and I've got a little bit of soapy water in here. Now, what you want to do is possibly spray some all-purpose cleaner. Really, whatever's necessary for the job. It depends on how dirty it is. And then, just scrub it. Obviously, anything with grooves like this you want to go in the direction of the grooves. That way, you can get down in them really well. As with everything, it's going to take a lot of elbow grease to really get it clean, but that's not a big deal. And when you're done let your soapy water out, and rinse your plastic furniture. Rinse all the bubbles off of it, and you can either hand dry it with a towel, or just let it sit in the tub until it dries, you know, air dries, and it's that easy. I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and that's how you clean plastic furniture.
