Yep, spray it with Westley's and hit it with a strong pressure washer. Hey bailey, how's the garbage can scar? That garbage can is probably poly also, it might could use a little TLC as a peace offering.

Westley's is always my "go to" stuff for a stubborn job. Just try a small area first.

This poly table that you ask about Mumbles, that's the white or coloured plastic ones?

Well I guess it really doesn't matter what the material is; I just got off the phone with the Misses and she says what she uses isn't that good IHO. Sorry Mumbles, good luck cause I know the staining can be stubborn.

Garett, it's some sort of moulded plastic with a slight "grain" in the finish, don't know if it's really poly or not. I'll give Wesleys a try on the underside and see what it does..... Spot, if my table melts I'm coming after YOU !!!!!!!! I'll report back in the event it works.... and I'll for darned sure report back if it DOESN'T........

This isn't exactly a "stain" as much as it is in the "grain" of the material's surface.
I fetched me some Wesley's from Uncle Wally and just finished it. It did come cleaner than it was after I attacked it with a stiff scrub brush and then rinsed in clear water. I'm satisfied enough to let it go and get another year out of it and then get a new one.
One lesson I have learned, keep it covered with something. I bought a queen size pillow protector to keep it in. The protector even has a zipper in one end so it's like perfect, protector was 4.99 at Uncle Wally's......
Thanks for the hint...... Helouise......... er... Spot........

As for the dammed trash can......... I ain't goin no where near it... I learnt my lesson 'bout dem.........

Tell'in ya bailey, rent you a 4000 psi pressure washer for a saturday and clean up everything on the patio plus shudders or anything else around the house. 4000 psi will bring anything back to almost new. You'll be amazed.

So are you suggesting Mumbles tries to fix his lip while he's at it? When exactly are tickets going on sale?

Ditto on the power washer. It's the only thing I have found that will get the StarBoard hatches on O2 clean.

My go-to solution for heavy duty cleaning. Straight from the NCSU Cooperative Extension. My mother-in-law calls it "mold mix", and it will take mold off boat cushions and such better than anything I've found. Bet it will work good on poly table.

P.S. Don't wear you're favorite shorts/shirt using this. The bleach will ruin it.

Exterior Wood Siding:Prepare a solution of 3 quarts warm water, 1 quart chlorine bleach, 1 ounce detergent and 3 ounces trisodium phosphate (TSP). If you cannot find TSP at a paint or hardware store, substitute 4-6 Tablespoons of powdered laundry detergent. Use a longhandled brush to scrub the surface, and then rinse with a garden hose. The solution also can be applied with a garden sprayer.

Have you tried a Mr Clean "Magic Eraser"? They really are magic.For a super tough stain use the pad in conjunction with a cleaner.There is no way it won't come out.
