Step-by-Step Process on How To Remove Mold From Camping Chairs
As an experienced camper and father of three, I’ve learned over the years how to properly clean and maintain my camping chair. Here’s my step-by-step process to remove mold from camping chairs.
Step 1: Start by wiping down your camping chair with a wet cloth if it has any visible mildew. This will help to rid of some of the visible mold.
Step 2: Create a cleaning solution concentrate with liquid dish soap and warm water. Dunk a cloth or sponge into the solution and wring it out. Wipe the chair thoroughly with the cloth, paying particular attention to those moldy spots.
Step 3: To get rid of more persistent mold, mix a solution of equal parts bleach and water. Put the cleaning solution in a spray bottle and apply it directly to the moldy areas. Let the solution sit on the affected areas for about 15 minutes.
Step 4: After the solution has had time to work its magic, it’s time to rinse it off. You can either use a hose or bucket full of warm water. Make sure to properly rinse the chair until all of the bleach solution is off.
Step 5: Finally, let the chair dry completely before storing it. This helps to reduce any moisture build-up that can lead to mold.
Using Vinegar To Remove Mold From Camping Chairs
Vinegar is a great alternative cleaning solution for removing mold from camping chairs. To get rid of the mold, mix a solution of one-part white vinegar with one-part water. You can put this solution in a spray bottle and apply it directly to the affected areas.
Once you let the solution sit for about 15 minutes, it’s time to rinse it off using a hose or bucket of warm water. Make sure to completely rinse off the solution before drying your chairs.
Pro-Tip: To prevent mold in the future, always try to dry off and store your camping chairs in a dry, well-ventilated area.
If your camping chair is showing signs of mold, fear not! By taking the right steps and using the right solution, you can easily remove the mold and keep your camping chairs looking and feeling great. So, the next time you go camping make sure you follow the proper steps to maintain your chair.
