Cleaning outdoor patio cushions

Mix together:
- 1 quart warm water
- 1 teaspoon dishwashing detergent
- 1 tablespoon Borax

Saturate a sponge with the solution, and use it to wash the cushions. You can put it in a spray bottle and saturate cushions on both sides, getting into the crevices and creases. Let the cushion sit for 15 minutes. Using a hose with a strong force of water, spray the cushions. (Care should be taken when using Borax around pets and children.)

Stand each cushion on its edge (out of the direct sun) to dry. When almost dry, spray with a fabric protector. To remove dust between cleanings, simply vacuum as needed. Or, if the cushions are small enough, just shake them out.
