Getting Rid Of Mildew From Your Beach And Camping Chair
You’ve made a plan to go to beaches or on a camping trip with your friends and family this weekend. You recall about the comfy chair you bought last year, so you go to check it out only to find that it has been infested with mold and mildew. If they are kept for a long time in a damp environment, mildew may develop on them. This will not only look bad but also have an unpleasant odor and be uncomfortable to sit on!
This definitely might seem like a deal-breaker and will make you rethink your plans or compromise on the fun you had intended to have, but fear not, we are here to help guide you on how to clean your beach and camping chair so that you can stay on track of having fun to the fullest.
Here are the steps to cleaning your beach and camping chairs.
The solution we’ll be using is not only effective, but it’s also simple to use. White Vinegar can be found in most homes, or you may go to your nearest supermarket or place an order online (if you have the time). The need for dilution of white Vinegar isn’t required; simply fill a sprayer bottle with it.
Bleach is not recommended since it is less efficient and, in certain cases, will damage the furniture on which it is used.
Getting Ready for The Cleanup
Because the mildew-infested chair is a breeding ground for these mold spores, it’s preferable to clean it in an open space. Otherwise, spores discharged during cleaning would spread throughout your home, which you don’t want to happen!
For this cleaning procedure, we recommend using hand gloves and a face mask.
Molds and mildew are harmful. They can cause difficulty breathing, headaches, chest discomfort, sore throat, and cough if breathed in. Mold thrives in a humid and wet atmosphere such as a garage or where there is a water leak.
If you have molds or mildew in your home, there is no point in overlooking any object or location. If you have a respiratory issue such as breathing difficulties or asthma, get help from your friends in removing mold from your chair or call an expert cleaning company.
Time to get rid of mildew
Spray the white Vinegar on your chair’s infected areas, leaving no space of your chair untouched if you notice a tiny presence of mold.
You may apply more solutions to areas with a lot of mold and mildew. Repeat steps until molds and mildew are entirely gone, then leave the chair in the same position for a while.
Removing the Vinegar smell off the chair.
Vinegar has an unmistakable odor, and sitting on a chair with that sort of stench would be unpleasant. To get rid of the vinegar smell, combine two teaspoons lemon juice, one teaspoon baking soda, and one-gallon hot water in a solution. After thoroughly mixing it, wipe the chair with the prepared solution. Wash the chair using warm water once it’s done.
You must now move the chair to the sun for natural disinfection. The UV rays of the sun will remove any remaining fungi (which it is improbable there would be one) as well as any unpleasant smell of white Vinegar that may have remained on your chair after cleaning it with Vinegar.
