Steps for Cleaning Camping Chairs

Cleaning camping chairs is not a difficult task but needs to be taken seriously to avoid any damage or discoloration. Follow the steps below to ensure your camping chairs are thoroughly and properly cleaned.

Step 1: Start by carefully removing the chair’s fabric cover. Make sure to slowly and gently remove all snaps and straps from the camping chair. Check to make sure all of the straps, snaps and metal frames are within the cover.

Step 2: Fill up the basin with warm water and add a mild soap like liquid dish soap to the water gently. Now put the chair fabric cover, straps and snaps into the basin and let them soak for at least a few hours.

Step 3: After the fabric cover and straps have had ample time to soak, rinse them thoroughly in cold water to get rid of the soap residue.

Step 4: Make sure that all components of the chair (fabric cover, buttons and snaps) are completely dry before proceeding to the next step.

Step 5: Mix a cup of white vinegar with a quart of warm water in a container or bowl and use that solution to wipe the metal frames of the camping chair. This will help remove any dirt or grease that might have accumulated on the frames.

Step 6: If the fabric cover is heavily soiled, use a soft cloth and a brush (or a toothbrush) to gently scrub away the dirt and debris from the cover. Use a laundry detergent if necessary.

Step 7: Now place the newly cleaned fabric cover and straps back on the chair and snap them to the metal frames.
