Caring for Outdoor Cushions
The fabric in our durable outdoor cushions, spun polyester, is manufactured with tough, weather-resistant, synthetic materials, and these cushions are designed to be used outside. Spun polyester has the look and feel of cotton. It absorbs liquid like cotton, but it is much more durable. Being man-made, it does not shrink, fade, lint, or snag like cotton. It is a 100% polyester material that has a soft fabric feel. Mold and mildew cannot grow on synthetic fibers. It's not the cushions that get moldy - the culprit is the dirt and pollen caught in the fibers that the mold spores live on. Keep your cushions clean and you'll never have this problem.
Spun polyester is an easy care fabric, but it should be cleaned regularly to keep your cushions looking fresh and new. Clean with 50% combination of water and mild soap or detergent. Do not use bleach on printed fabrics. Keeping outdoor cushions clean is the best thing you can do to extend the life of them.
