I have no idea what the "proprietary ingredients" are that make up about 1%. of the mixture So it is a 20:1 ratio of water to bleach and then depending on what you are cleaning, you cut it by another 50% water so it is a little less than 1 T bleach to a quart of water.

So its basically a bottle of diluted bleach. Well I feel silly now.

Oh, well the chairs are still nice, and more are on the way.

That’s really funny. I’ll have to try diluted bleach and see if it works as well next time. I’ve been buying this stuff all season - it works like a champ so I’m hoping we can recreate it.

I live in the Midwest - should I be putting my polywood furniture inside for the winter? I didn’t last year, and my garage is tiny… I have two huge loungers, so I’d prefer to leave them outside…. Thoughts?

This is my first year with it. I'm in RI which can be pretty snowy. I'm planning on keeping it outside and covering it with breathable covers (based on recs from this site). It's just so heavy. I don't want to lug it far to store it. Hope I don't regret it. So far, I only have 3 loungers though. Planning to get a 4th and a table set this spring.

In NE Oklahoma here. I'm planning on leaving mine out and uncovered all winter. First season with it. It has a 20 year warranty and the warranty doesn't say anything about bringing inside for harsh weather.

No need to bring it inside for storage. It holds up just fine outside in the winter. Our oldest PW is about 8 years old and looks great.

Not sold on the idea of covering it. I live in western NY and have had PW furniture for years. Leave it out year round. Covering it may invite little critters to take up shelter. Claw marks, teeth marks and potty stains may result. I don't see a reason to cover it...anyone?

I don't. Don't like the look and haven't seen any negatives. It does get some green but I feel that's in season growth due to shade.

Makes sense. If they do well uncovered, that’s better than covered which would add risk of stuff growing under the cover, or critters as you mention. The chipmunks in my neighborhood run the place - we’re just living in their world.
