Even though aluminum is considered to be a great material for outdoor furniture that resists all types of weathers, it is necessary to keep it undamaged by applying a special cleaning process. Aluminum does not rust, but throughout the seasonal changes, its color can fade or it can develop a rough surface. It will look like it has particles of dirt, but these fragments dont disappear easily. If the surface is slightly discolored, clean it with soap and water, added to it some household acid like lemon juice or vinegar. On the other hand, if the surface is very damaged, rub it with a steel wool pot, wash it and dry it. Be careful, all steel wool should be removed completely, or it may rust and stain the aluminum. Also, keep your aluminum patio furniture away from commercial cleaners.
