Can LIFE All Weather cushions be left outside?
Yes. An All Weather cushion (developed by LIFE Outdoor Living) can be left outdoors throughout the entire season. These cushions are produced from high-quality synthetic products - when it rains the water goes through the cushion cover and into the microporous inner cushion. By pressing down on the cushions or placing the cushions on their edges, they will be dry in a relatively short period of time. Although the cushions are All Weather, to keep them clean and prolong their life, we suggest covering them when not in use and storing indoors for the winter months.
Are LIFE All Weather cushions waterproof?
No. LIFE All Weather cushions are not waterproof - they are weatherproof. New technology created allows water to pass through these cushions without any water retention, which in turn means no mildew build up that could eventually cause your cushions to rot. This unique technology, and lack of water retention, is also a major factor in the cushions’ ability to retain their original shape.
How long after it has rained can LIFE All Weather cushions be used?
This really depends on the conditions at the time as warm or damp weather makes a difference, but even after a prolonged heavy downpour we have found that LIFE All Weather cushions can be used within a very short period if the above procedure for optimal draining is followed.
LIFE upholstered dining chairs such as Sense or Caribbean chairs can be tilted forwards to promote quick and easy draining after rainfall.
How can All Weather cushions be cleaned?
Stains can be removed by cleaning with LIFE Outdoor Living Textilene and Wicker Cleaner. This is a non-foaming cleaner for open-woven fabrics and wicker. For more stubborn stains the outer cover can be cleaned at 30 degrees in the washing machine, with a small amount of laundry detergent. It is best to wash one cover at a time. Before cushions are bagged and stored for the winter months, or a protection cover is placed over furniture with cushions, please ensure that the cushions are completely dry.
