Cleaning plastic outdoor furniture

Q.  What is the best way to clean white plastic outdoor furniture that becomes stained by the weather? I just hate to throw something away if it need not be.

A.    The safest thing is to use an oxygen bleach such as Oxy-Boost (www.ecogeeks.com.) To my dismay, I have used a solution of regular bleach and water before with wonderful results – for a while – but the resin furniture began to chalk and lost all its luster. I can only wonder if the bleach had anything to do with this deterioration or it was simply age. I had to throw the furniture away. Live and learn.

Gel-Gloss is a cleaner/polish you can also try. It is available in many home, hardware and department stores, or at www.gel-gloss.com.
