How to clean patio furniture with Tide OXI

I heart this IKEA patio table. We actually bought it for our living room, but then found a super steal of a deal on a new dining room table, and so this little beauty moved outside!

Just for fun, here’s our patio table when it lived in our living room.

We inherited a ton of patio furniture when we bought our house, but no table. We gave the old patio chairs a major paint makeover and then built a cinder block bench. The table was a much needed addition to our existing patio furniture (the octagon coffee table got ruined in the rain… it was a $5 estate sale find!).

Fast forward one year, and our lovely patio table looks like this…basically just covered in water stains and dirt. Boo. We use Tide OXI for laundry issues, and I’d noticed that it said it could be used on patio furniture too! Time to give it a test run. Y’all! It’s kind of awesome. Check this out…

And here she is all squeaky clean! I’m happy to know that a 10 minute rub down makes this patio table look brand spankin’ new.

Those, my friends, are cake pops that I did not make. That tasty one you’re staring at is a cookies n’cream cake pop with Oreo® Cookies. (Andy’s fave!) I wish I was this talented. Really, I do. I want to bake, and have Andy tell me what an amazing baker I am. But, alas you can’t be amazing at everything, right? ;) I’m just happy to know that I can order these puppies up from Shari’s Berries at a moments notice and have them shipped anywhere in 1-2 days! They have tons of variety and they come fresh to your door step. Perfect for gifts, special occasions, or just a yummy treat at home! Check out this cuteness:

Those are brownie pops! They’re fudgy-ier and richer than cake pops! And those animals kill me. Maxwell might need a Zoo birthday! You know I like to keep things simple, so I just grabbed some brightly colored pom pom’s and a white cake stand and voila, I’m so fancy! The cake pops come with sticks in them and they stand perfectly. So, I really did just un wrap each cake pop from it’s plastic wrapper and stick it on the cake stand.

Check out this impressive packaging to ensure freshness at your doorstep:

1. The cardboard box is basically an insulated cooler.

2. That’s an icepack that was way cold when I opened the box.

3. The actual goodies are wrapped up cute with a card!

Maxwell wants a treat. Maybe on your one year birthday, bud! Shari’s Berries also sells chocolate covered strawberries, yum!

In cake pop land, there are tons of yummy flavors: red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter with Reese’s®, and cookies n’cream with Oreo® Cookies. You’re looking at a vanilla cake pop and one of the animal brownie pops! Both make me drool, ha!
