I live in Georgia. POLLEN everywhere!! I'll confess we have never cleaned out deck in the 3 years we've lived here. But I'd like it to look nicer now. I have a plan to clean the wood deck. I'm not sure how to handle the metal deck chairs. They are not cast iron, just the cheap white metal chairs from Target.

How do I clean the buildup of pollen off the chairs?

I use soap and my hose. Sometimes a brush if I need to. We have a glasstop patio table and chairs. When our lilac blooms the pollen is so bad! Our cars get covered too. Sooo thankful I don't have allergies.

But what kind of soap? I'm clueless! Are we talking about dishwashing detergent, like Dawn?

Yep, dishwashing liquid. I use it to wash the cars too!

Water and a Magic Eraser (or two). It will go fast, and you will be thrilled with the results. I promise!

My husband used a pressure washer on the plastic chairs and the deck in a similar situation. It was actually pretty slow, but he had a lot of fun.
