Wicker Leisure Chair and accessories are very popular choices for living spaces both outdoors and in. Comfortable, sturdy, and attractive, wicker comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns, making it complementary of countless decorating schemes.

A natural product, wicker is a weave of reeds and plant fibers and as such, it requires specialized care to looks its best. Here are some useful tips to help you care and cleaning your rattan furniture outdoor.

Rinse your rattan furniture

Take your water hose and start rinsing your rattan furniture. If it’s already sunny outside then I would recommend that you do this in a shady place, because it has to stay wet for later. You should have a hose nozzle for this. Set it on spraying because you are trying to rinse your rattan furniture and not water it. Using a pressure washer for this step could damage your rattan furniture so it’s better to just use your water hose.

Mix dishwashing liquid with a gallon of warm water

The amount I go with usually is ¼ cup of dishwashing liquid and a gallon of warm water. When water is warm, it is much more effective at cleaning than cold water. Make sure that you mix those two up by stirring them. It is best to use a bucket because you are probably going to move it around. One bucket should be more than enough to clean your entire bistro set or furniture set.

Dip your soft brush into the bucket and start cleaning

I have found some articles online that are suggesting that you use a toothbrush for this. Well, I have tried cleaning one chair with a toothbrush and the other with a much larger soft brush. Guess what? There was a big difference in the time that it took me to clean one single chair. But speaking of cleaning them, there was not so much difference. In fact, when I tried to do the process with a toothbrush the chair got dry before I could finish so it was left with spots on it.

Rinse your rattan furniture again

There is nothing much to say here. Use your water hose and set it on spraying just like at the first step. Make sure that your table, chairs, etc. don’t get dry before you are finished with this step. If they get dry while there is still soap on them then you will end up with spots on your furniture. Again it is best to clean your rattan in the shades if it is sunny outside.

Leave to dry

Now it is time to let your furniture dry out in the sun. Some people use cloths to wipe it and make the process faster but I think that it is perfectly fine to just leave it out in the sun. While you are waiting for your rattan furniture to dry you can clean your cushions if you have any.

A regular clean keeps cane furniture looking great and remaining strong; with these tips, you can handle the task with ease. If you require more information, then please feel free to contact Leisure Chair manufacturer Inshare Furniture(Zhejiang) Co., Ltd or visit our site:
