Launder your outdoor fabric if it has become soiled, stained or otherwise dirty. Use a standard laundry detergent and air-dry your fabrics.
Place your fabrics on a clothesline on a non-windy day.
Spray silicone fabric protectant with UV protection on the fabric. Hold the spray can 12 inches from the exterior or top side of the fabric surface and spray the surface evenly. Coat the entire fabric. Apply a second coat along surfaces where the fabric is pressed against the frame of a chair, umbrella or other support framework, as these areas tend to receive additional sunlight and exposure to weather. Allow the fabric to dry completely before reinstalling.
