Wicker and seagrass are both quite resilient, and designed for outdoor use. In fact, Wicker Paradise says that either material can be used all year long, even in climates that see snow or rain. However, for your furniture to last you’ll need to take some care in maintaining it.
Wicker furniture can last a long time with the proper care several times a year. After spending a lot of money to buy a wicker sofa for a home’s living room or deck, it is essential to care for it correctly. When you spill a beverage or food on your wicker furniture, make sure to remove the debris immediately to prevent permanent stains on the chair or sofa. To remove heavy debris, use your garden hose to wash the furniture on a warm day before it dries under the sun.
Remove Mold with Vinegar
If your wicker chairs begin to develop mold growth, then it is vital to remove the contamination as quickly as possible. An easy and inexpensive way to remove mold is by spraying the wicker furniture with a mixture of white vinegar and water. You can also use a soft brush to scrub gently on the wicker to dissolve the mold. After removing the discoloration, rinse away the cleaning solution with the water from the garden hose.
Remove Debris from Cushions
Patio furniture cushions also get dirty, and the items require cleaning to have an attractive appearance and fresh smell. Mix some mild laundry detergent and water in a dishpan before using a sponge dipped in the solution to scrub the surface of each cushion. Leave the damp cushions outside in the sunlight to dry completely before storing the items or using the items on wicker furniture.
