I read a Pinterest link about using Turtle Wax to clean outdoor aluminum furniture: http://hip2save.stfi.re/2015/04/16/how-to-fix-faded-aluminum-patio-furniture-using-just-one-common-household-item/?sf=dbopznp#aa
Our pool furniture is a couple years old, so I wanted to give this cleaning tip a try. But being the cheap crapsperson that I am, I decided to use Armor-All since I already had it in my garage. The Armor-All was useful for cleaning off all the yellow spring pollen, but it didn’t renew the finish of the aluminum. Not willing to give up my cheap habit of using what I already had, I switched to using some Johnson’s Paste Wax. Here’s a before and after:
Did it make a difference? Somewhat. Was it worth the effort? Maybe. Did it live up to the restore-your-aluminum-furniture-and-make-it-look-like-new promise of the original Pinterest post? Nope. I guess I’ll splurge on some Turtle Wax!
