The Savannah bench cushions have been treated with a showerproof covering which means water and spills can be wiped off of the surface easily. The showerproof coating is suitable for light rain, however, we do recommend bringing the cushions inside during bad weather.
For a deeper clean, the cushion covers can be unzipped and removed as they are machine washable. However, please keep in mind that machine washing does degrade the performance of the cushion treatments, such as the UV and Showerproof coating. Leave machine washing for removing those bigger marks and stick to spot cleaning for a quick freshen up.
To clean the polywood side and coffee table surfaces, all you should need is soap and warm water. However, for a deeper clean, you can use a solution that’s one-third bleach and two-thirds water. Use a brush with soft bristles to reach any tight spaces and a soft cloth for cleaning the overall piece of furniture. Prolonged contact between the polywood surface and cushion's anti-slip mat may cause discolouring of the table surface. For this reason we recommend the seat is used for light use only and during storage the mat should be faced away from the polywood.
To clean the powder coated leg frame of your bench, simply wash the surface with soapy water. For more stubborn or greasy marks, you can add a mild household acid such as vinegar or lemon juice. Stay away from any ammonia, TSP or soda-based products as this can encourage oxidation on the surface. From time to time it’s a good idea to use your garden hose to give your aluminium a good rinse. If you do this, avoid using a pressure washer or a strong setting on a garden hose nozzle as such a strong and focused stream of water could damage the furniture’s finish. A normal garden hose will do just the trick.
