Tips for moms: How to clean white plastic chairs


Plastic chairs are practical and all-weather.

In fact, at one time there was no garden or terrace without a white plastic chair, not to mention taverns and summer shops.

Plastic chairs: advantages

Plastic chairs are lightweight, usually recycled and stored on top of each other to save space. Also, they are durable but if you have them constantly exposed to the sun they may break (it also depends on the quality of the plastic).

Plastic chairs: disadvantages

The downside of white plastic chairs is that they get dirty easily and some stains are easily absorbed.

Plastic chairs: cleanliness

Rinse the chairs with plenty of water, then mix some white vinegar with water in a spray bottle. Spray any mold stains, wait about 10 minutes and rinse.

Cleaning solutions

Depending on how dirty the white chairs are, you can try the following solutions:

  • Pour warm water into a bucket and add a quarter cup of dishwashing liquid. Mix well and scrub the plastic, white chairs with a sponge.
  • Mix warm water with half a cup of baking soda and scrub the stains on the white plastic chair.
  • Add a quarter cup of all-purpose cleaner to a gallon of warm water. The cleaning solution is sprayed onto a white plastic chair and wiped with a cloth.

Wash the chairs

Wash the chairs from top to bottom using a sponge or soft-bristled brush. For tough stains, sprinkle some baking soda on the sponge or brush and scrub the chair.

Then rinse well with the hose. If the chairs are clean and white, dry them with a microfiber towel or place them in the sun.


If the chairs still have stains, use an oxygen-based bleach solution. Oxygen bleach removes stains, is less corrosive and harmful to plastics and also more environmentally friendly.

Tips for keeping white plastic chairs clean

  • Do not leave chairs under trees that drop flowers or leaves.
  • Clean, cover and store the chairs indoors protected from low temperatures during the winter season.
  • Use an outdoor umbrella to protect the chairs when placed outside.
