Backyard Play Equipment Harbors Harmful Grime and Dirt

Backyard Play Equipment Harbors Harmful Grime and Dirt

(ARA)- One of the most overlooked, yet most needed, cleaning chores in your home is probably right in your own back yard--outdoor play equipment. When outdoor play equipment--activity gyms, swing sets, sandboxes, playhouses, little red wagons, even doghouses--come out for the summer, it can be a staging area for bacteria-laden dirt and grime.
When the air turns cool, most backyard play equipment was consigned, like the lawnmower, to the back of the garage, an unused corner of the basement or storage shed. Most outdoor playthings need a seasonal cleaning to free them from the mold, mildew and everyday dirt they pick up while not in use. Even when it stays outdoors year 'round, as most swings and pet shelters do, the surfaces easily become contaminated from dust and residue. Playground equipment, like outdoor furniture, is exposed to weather, windblown dirt and the occasional visiting bird, plus whatever grime has stuck to its surface during storage.
CLR Outdoor Furniture Cleaner is formulated specifically to combat the types of dirt and grime encountered outdoors, and this makes it perfect for backyard play equipment. Just spray on, wipe off and rinse. The cleaner fights stains, contains a UV-protectant and is harmless to grass.
CLR Outdoor Furniture Cleaner is ideal for a clean start to the outdoor season. It will give a good feeling knowing children can enjoy the outdoor season with backyard play equipment and outdoor toys that are squeaky clean.
