The cushions on good quality synthetic rattan garden furniture can be left out in a shower and the water droplets just shaken off afterwards; but they are not completely waterproof so must be brought indoors or stowed in a cushion box when heavy rain is forecast.
Before storing them for the winter it is advisable to wash the covers, in accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions and make sure they are completely dry otherwise mould and mildew will soon take hold. There are plenty of boxes available to match your garden furniture which will keep your cushions dry and provide good airflow.
Cushions on budget outdoor furniture sets however are extremely unlikely to even be showerproof so cannot be left outside when the furniture is not in use.
