Duh. Rarely. That's what rain is for. (;

I need to visit more states to the west. Thx for update.

Yup. Brown and black really. But remember, NM isn't all desert ;) I live in the mountains right next to a national forest. And they're generally not aggressive, but they'll crawl through your car door if you've got food!

@jjc - bears in new Mexico? Brown bears? Dangerous?

March - November we're out pretty much everyday so our furniture gets cleaned regularly.

@Josh310 My body misses the sun but my mind missed the rain. Go figure! :) I might need to think tropical next time I move!

We have bears that hang out very near our house and we grill and eat outside all the time. Those babies get cleaned a lot ;)

In the winter? Almost never. Summer? Almost always.

We eat outside most every day. We clean the tables daily. I hose off furniture once a week and our cleaning ladies mop the deck once a week.

Teak looks best when settles in with natural look.

Rarely... The old place we had them through the winter so we never used them (dumpster rescues... Well kind of). Now we have none. When I lived at home, we only cleaned them when we used them. Why clean them more often? It's like water blasting your drive weekly. Not necessary.

Funny, but what passes for outdoor furniture today, is what passed for indoor furniture when I was in college. Maybe I should dig around in the outdoor chairs for loose change and shake.

I voted YES on the marijuana poll. What do you think?

Just right before a party, to remove all of the bird droppings. Most of it's out by the bird feeders, so the birds primarily treat the wrought iron furniture as their own, big, fancy bird perches.

It's kind of embarrassing; our outdoor furniture is slowly rotting while our neighbor's are shiny and clean.

04/03/12 6:04 pm

No they need to be replaced because I never clean them. We always just break out our camp chairs when we sit outside.

04/03/12 5:37 pm

we use them almost daily, so they don't seem to get dirty.

04/03/12 5:21 pm

My guess are the godless dirty lawn chair crowd. Unless he decides the clean lawn chair people are damned for wasting their money on outdoor furniture.
This could go either way....

I am white knuckled with anticipation of which side holybabble's wrath will befall.

04/03/12 5:19 pm

I like the lighter tone of the last few questions. I wish we had cleaner outdoor furniture but theres only so much time in the day.

04/03/12 5:15 pm

only when it rains :) jk I don't have any

04/03/12 4:54 pm

only when getting ready for a party.

Have one pink plastic adirondack chair and I figure that's what the rain is for lol.

04/03/12 4:16 pm

Have none so that would be rarely for me.

04/03/12 3:55 pm

Landoffree- your yard man could be white, black, latino. What I question is why you'd think others would view a yard man as only a certain race? Just saying...

LandOfFree, why should anyone consider you racist if you have a yard man? Regardless of your race or theirs. I have a mechanic. And a luthier. And a doctor. Etc. it's nobody's business if we hire people to do the things we can't or don't want to do. Even if you're a democrat.

Gets cleaned really well once a year. It's part of my "spring cleaning" routine.

Our backyard furniture gets hosed down weekly when we hose down the backyard. We have dogs, we hose everything down weekly so it doesn't stink
