How to Keep Your Outdoor Patio Umbrella Clean?

Spending more time outdoors dining, entertaining guests or just lounging can become a very hot and sticky endeavor when the sun is beating down. A quick and inexpensive way to get out of the sun and into the shade is by using a Mingzi Sun patio umbrella. The use of an umbrella is necessary for shade. Use these tips to clean, and then keep clean, this precious commodity.
  • Use a sponge dipped in a mild soapy dishwater solution to clean either canvas or vinyl umbrellas. Rinse with a hose, then open to let dry in the sun.
  • Apply automotive vinyl finish to a clean, dry vinyl umbrella to keep soil and stains at bay.
  • Remove built-up grime by using a cleaner sold for the vinyl tops of cars.
  • Keep the umbrella closed during the rain, but try to open it immediately after becoming wet so that it can dry. Clear away any dirt or debris that may have gotten into the folds while it was closed.
  • Clean the umbrella thoroughly and let it dry completely before storing it away for the winter.
