Regular cleaning is important as it keeps away the chances of any infestation or damage to the furniture. Not cleaning it properly can harbour mould and bacteria growth, both of which works to lessen the life span of the furniture which nobody would appreciate.

Here are some basic cleaning steps for your rattan outdoor garden furniture:

  1.    Make use of a soft brush to clean out any dust, debris (food particles) you might find on the furniture piece. Ensure the bristles of the brush are soft and not abrasive as it would damage the furniture.
  2.    A vacuum cleaner would come handy after you are done brushing it. If the surface is painted, go slow with the vacuum brushes to avoid scraping off the coating.
  3.    A pair of tweezers would work well when you want to get rid of dirt from harder to reach places like crevices or in between the weaves. You can also use a bit of water and soap suds to make cleaning easy and fast but be gentle.
  4.    Once in a month, wipe your rattan outdoor garden furniture with a soft damp cloth or warm soapy water. You can also make use of hose pipe or jet washer with gentle spray along and mild detergent. The cushions that come along with dining sets and sofa sets are easily removable and you can give them a quick machine wash with a mild fabric cleaner.
  5.    After you are done washing the furniture, leave them to dry in a well ventilated area or under the sun for quick drying. Make sure the furniture is not left wet for long as it might incline growth of mildew or mould. This happens in the case of natural rattan garden furniture and not HDPE manufactured rattan.
