- When taking your furniture in or out of storage, clean wrought-iron furniture and plastic cushions with a solution of ½ cup Super Washing Soda dissolved in a gallon of warm water. For wrought iron, scrub with a stiff-bristled brush, hose off, and dry in the sun. For plastic cushions, wipe down with a cloth or a sponge. Outdoor furniture should not be cleaned on wooden decks as Super Washing Soda can remove the finish. Do not use on aluminum outdoor furniture.
