Difficulty: Average
Time Required: 20-30 minutes

Here's How:

  1. General cleaning

    To do light cleaning for wicker furniture, use a soft scrub brush. For a great cleaning solution, I recommend a wood oil soap mixed with water. Be sure to rinse your furniture thoroughly.

  2. Hose down with water. Hose down your wicker furniture every few weeks to prevent a build up of dirt and debris in the crevices of the furniture.
  3. Prevent damage.

    To prevent weathering and damage, use vinyl/plastic covers over your wicker furniture. This can help extend the life of the wicker.
