Boating, Camping, Porch, Patio, Lanai, Beach decor. Imagine the uses! A beautiful yet, truly water resistant pillow with color that does not fade, long lasting and environmentally friendly. DJ’s Beach shack pillows are made using a poly nylon material, which means they are not cotton sprayed with a waterproof chemical. They are water, mold & mildew resistant. Sand & dirt brushes right off. If cleaning is needed a cloth, soap & water is all you need. Do not machine wash. Do not submerge this pillow in water, it is not a Life Saving device.
