How about cleaning the sets?
The Hanging Canvas Seat is made
from durable canvas and the Taco is made from extra durable rip-stop
material and the carpet of the Plywood is also durable. Clean with
soapy sponge and then sponge rinse.
How outdoors are the swing frames?
Both the Homestand II and HPSI have
a weather resistant baked on powder coat (plastic) finish.
However, being portable means there are more joints and connections to
wear. The frames are not meant to stay outdoors in the elements,
although many parents will keep their frame outside under a covered
patio, for instance. If you just need a stationary outdoor frame,
we advice you to get an inexpensive swing frame from a department store
and order the 3 Swings and a Swivel
Package at the Autism Index Store.
How outdoors are the seats?
The swings should be used in dry
swinging weather. Leaving them out in the rain or other weather will
adversely affect stability of your seats and void your warranty for
