    Dear friends,

    We have 2 plastic chairs and a table that we use in balcony. due to lack of space they remain in the balcony during all seasons. this winter i forgot to clean them and then cover. now they've muddy stains esp at the corners that refuses to go with detergent powder. is there any other way to clean them?

    If your plasticfurniture is of white colour then try bleach. Any fabric bleach will clean stains.

    Hi latha..

    Use the dish detergent liquid... or detergent powder ... put some in 1/4 bucket of hot water... Take a sponge or a cloth, dip in the liquid and rub it slowly and little hardly on the chairs.. it works well for me.. after doing for once.. clean the cloth or sponge with water, squeeze it and dip in the liquid and do it again..
    clean with wet sponge once u r done...
    :thumbsup

    nothing works like vinegar.. take white vinegar ... dilute it with water.. say like 1:8 of vinegar : water... and dip a sponge in the solution, squeeze it lightly and rub it on the furniture.. works like a charm

    actually the best trick is kerosene.. just rub it with kerosene and then wash off with soap..plastic is restored back to its sparkle..

    you can also use vinegar..

    if it is stain from hard water in case of buckets and mugs, acid in water helps..but the last resort...
