Caring for delicate wicker furniture is not such a hard task. Check out these simple steps to keep your garden furniture in ship shape.
This pliable weave used to make furniture is traditionally constructed from rattan, split reed, or coated paper and is sometimes reinforced with metal. Coats of clear varnish, paint, or a combination of the two are often applied to protect the surface.
1. Sunlight is the primary enemy of wicker. Always cover wicker furniture if you intend to leave it outside for more than two or three weeks.
2. To remove dirt and debris, vacuum with a dust-brush attachment or use a dry paintbrush. Clean with a mild soap solution. Scrub, and rinse.
3. Avoid using too much water, which can weaken the fibers.
4. Regular cleaning is recommended for wicker, as it generally cannot endure harsh or abrasive treatments. This also minimizes mildew buildup.
5. Sand lightly with fine-grit sandpaper to remove any peeling paint, and touch up with paint as necessary.
