What properties does an OUTDOOR CUSHION have?

Ask anyone, they’ll say an outdoor cushion can be left outdoors and it will survive….

Hmmm, are we talking Bear Grylls type survival skills of a simple home decor item?

Apparently yes.

(Not to mention they should be good looking as well!)

Most of us want any item we buy to do what it says on the packet, but many so called ‘outdoor cushions’ are either WATER RESISTANT or UV RESISTANT. The majority are not both.

But a 3rd property that is essential to any good quality outdoor cushion is MILDEW RESISTANCE.

Otherwise, they may actually start to develop black spots and stains after a few weeks exposed to heavy overnight condensation.

I’m not saying an outdoor cushion should deflect bullets, but it should give the user suitable value for money considering the weather conditions the items will be exposed to.

Insist on an outdoor cushion that suits your lifestyle and the environment in which you live.

Water Repellent Blog

Buy outdoor cushions with at least these 3 properties:

  • UV Treated
  • Water Repellent
  • Mildew Resistant

Even though Bear Grills is an “Outdoors Man”, he does venture indoors from time to time too, I’ve heard. “Outdoor Cushions” are no different. If you’re not using them for long periods, bring them in. They’ll last even longer.
