How to Clean Mildew Off of Outdoor Cushions

If you didn’t bother putting your outdoor patio furniture away for the winter, mildew may have grown on your cushions. This is caused by the prolonged non-use of your furniture, coupled with the moist conditions of Southeast Texas.

If you’re wondering what you can do to remove this nasty mildew, look no further! Ritter has a quick and easy method you can use to clean all of your outdoor cushioning.

Items Needed:

  • Handheld scrub brush
  • Bucket
  • Borax powder
  • Vinegar


  1. Use your handheld scrub brush to brush all of the loose dirt and debris off of the cushions.
  2. Fill your bucket with about a quart of warm water and add a cup of vinegar and a tablespoon of borax powder.
  3. Soak your brush in the solution and scrub the mildew spots on your cushions. Repeat until your cushions are clean.
  4. Rinse your cushions with plain water and let them air dry.
