Cleaning your vinyl bar stools regularly is important for sanitary purposes. Not cleaning or improper cleaning can lead to your bar stools becoming frail and flakey. Start by wiping your vinyl bar stool with a damp cloth. Now, add some baking soda to your damp cloth and wipe it down again. Next, brush your bar stool with a mix of water, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide. This combination will eliminate any mildew or mold that is built up on the stool. If you don’t have these chemicals on hand, then simply, just use a combination of soap and water. Finally, wipe down the vinyl bar stool with a dry rag and enjoy your sparkling clean bar stool.
