How To Clean Mold / Mildew From Camping Chairs?


I once had an experience when it heavily rained during my camping and all my camping stuff were wet and when I reached home I forgot to dry all of the items. Then when I noticed them I found that the fabrics attached to the camping chairs had Mold/Mildew on them.

As I cannot remove the fabrics from the camping chairs, I am required to clean them using away without removing them from the chair.

So here is the method I followed to clean mold and mildew from my camping chair along with few other methods which other campers suggested.

Allow it to dry in the sun

I first allowed the chair to dry in the sun for some time so that any left Mold will get killed in the sunlight. I usually allow it for at least half a day in optimum sunlight.

Now since you have allowed the camping chair to dry in sunlight, the next is to remove all the mold/mildew/dirt from it using any of the below methods.

Method 1:

If you can find a way to steam clean the entire camping chair without removing the fabrics from it, then this would be the most recommended way which will render your camping chair in the cleanest form.

Method 2:

Add enough alcohol or ethanol into a spray bottle and then spray it on the fabric of the camping chair where there is mold/mildew. Once you spray enough ethanol or alcohol on it, allow it to dry on the sun. You might need to repeat the steps 2 to 3 times based on the result you get the first time. It is also advised to have a small test before soaking the entire chair so that there is no color loss in the fabric.

Method 3:

Add white vinegar to your spray bottle without diluting it. Spray it very well over the place is affected by mildew. Use a cleaning sponge to wipe the entire camping chair trying to remove all the vinegar which is sprayed.

Now take a small amount of this cleaning soap (gentle on fabric), 1 tsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp of baking soda and mix them with enough water. Wash the chair with this solution and rinse it.

Now allow it to dry in sunlight for some time until it dries completely.

Always make sure that you dry your camping gears when it gets wet to prevent the formation of mildew.

Guide To Choose The Right Camping Chairs


It can be tough to choose the right camping chairs especially when there are hundreds of options to choose from in the market. But there are several things you must consider before making your purchase so that the camping chair you choose will take care of all your requirements and such that it is convenient for you. The first thing that comes in mind when you think of the camping chair is it must easily fit into your car along with other camping accessories.

If you choose heavy camping chair considering you will get more for the price you pay, then it will be against what you think is the right camping chair. Because choosing a heavy camping chair can make it extremely difficult for you to carry it along with other camping tools. But in case you are a monster weighing 400 pounds, then it is definitely a requirement for you to choose your camping chair that will withstand your weight.

Make sure it is strong

your best camping chair must be strong enough to withstand any weight. The frame and the fabric on which you will sit must be capable of withstanding the person who sits on it.

Make sure it is easy to store

a chair that is very large will take up a large amount of space in your car or at your home. So consider the one which is easy to store and can be used at home until the next camping season begins.

Quality of the fabric

the fabric used on the camping chair must be of good quality and must last for a long time and easy to clean.

Price of the camping chair

The chair that you buy must be worth the price that it is paid for. So do your research before making your purchase.

There is no best camping chair that will fit everyone. As every person is different and the need of the chair varies from each individual, the best camping chair is the one that best fits your requirements.

I have come across many brands of camping chairs and have personally used brands like Coleman, Ozark and many others. I really liked the one from Coleman but others in my family had different opinions. In fact each one of my family member had different suggestions. That is why I always say the best camping chair is the one that best fits your requirements.
