Might be helpful to know what kind of outdoor patio furniture you're talking about, as there's many different kinds... I know I recently cleaned what looked like years of outdoor use from our chairs with a plain old SOS pad. This is the plain jane plastic patio chairs and table.

Plastic, wood, composite, fabric or metal? What kind(s) of soil/stain?

I don't know. I have upholstered cushions that are made out of some kind of plastic and they look really bad. I have tried cleaning with soap, water and clorox and they still don't look good. If anyone knows of something that cleans better I would love to know what it is.

Try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

I am wondering if one of those "car wash" type sprayers with a soap solution inside would help.
Warmest Regards,

I thought of suggesting that, as the first thing that came to mind when I first read this was that silly Magic Eraser commercial where the thing gets tossed about the neighbourhood to everyone and their dog...
I tried that on my patio furniture (just the basic, simple, boring plastic patio furniture) and it did not work. I found a regular SOS pad was the best, but maybe that was because our chairs looked like they had years and years of outdoor use on them, as we did get them second hand.

I've found they work well on our Little Tikes toys. I got some of those little yellow chairs from Goodwill and they cleaned up pretty nicely. But an SOS pad would have worked well, too.

Heh... With the Magic Eraser, I might have given up too soon... I found that it wore out real fast and I was stubbing my fingers with it while trying to clean. The SOS pad, OTOH, makes my hands break out with a reaction because of the steel and the soap crud on it, but it was cheap - pay the same price almost for a whole box of SOS pads as you do for 1 Magic Eraser - and it was fast. I was hoping it didn't scratch the crap out of the furniture, and it doesn't seem to have done that, not that it would really matter much to me for old, basic patio chairs! I haven't tried the Magic Eraser on outdoor toys - the sandbox could use a good cleaning, come to think of it... I found the Magic Eraser does work wonders on wall and floor scuffs... I went nuts with one at my parents' place when I noticed their walls and floor in the kitchen had scuff marks all over because of my little brother's hockey bag, which he's fairly clumsy and inconsiderate with ;) (he's also 17 years old lol) and my mom had tried almost everything to get those scuffs off, yet the Magic Eraser worked like a charm.

Is there any silver bullet for getting glass shower doors squeaky clean and shiny?

What odd quirk of fate caused janerene to generate the following ::

Are you talking about just water spots or soap scum. Mr Clean Magic Erasers are good for soap scum. Kaboom works great too. Just for spots...I'd just dry it with a towel after the shower.

yes, you may need the eraser- but once you do get it clean spray often with vinegar- leave for 2 minutes and just wipe- this should stop a build up- you can also spray with vinegar before using the eraser.......if quite bad - just use vinegar straight- other wise mix half vinegar and half water-
