I just bought high-quality polystyrene outdoor furniture, and the care instructions state that you should never use furniture covers on polystyrene. I have never heard this before and can't find any reference to it on the web. I had planned to keep the furniture covered during the winter months. Does anyone know why the instructions would say not to use covers?
