Ideas To Care Rattan Patio Furniture
Rattan patio furniture – Rattan is made of a tropical climbing tree. Once it is dried and cured, it is a very hard, resistant material that can last for many years if properly cared for. The strength and longevity of rattan furniture is greatly affected by its quality. The best quality rattan is soft to the touch and has no fractures, cracks or strands of hair hanging out of it. Selection of quality rattan furniture makes it easier for care since a smooth surface does not pick up dirt, dust and moisture as easily as a rough surface. Keep your rattan furniture wet. Although it is tolerant to moisture, it should not be exposed to rain or direct sunlight.
On a regular basis, rattan furniture should be removed from the dust and gently cleaned to keep the surface free of debris and oils. Vacuum the surface of the furniture regularly, and wipe it with a soft cloth that has been immersed in the foam from a mixture of water and mild detergent. Do not wet the surface of the rattan. Use a small brush to clean any dirt in the cracks. Finish by rubbing with a soft, dry cloth.
When you get a warm, dry, windy day, take the outdoor furniture and wash it with a mixture of water and mild soap, using a brush to get into any crack. Use a water hose to spray all the remaining dirt and soap. Allow the furniture to sit out in a well-ventilated area, preferably in the sun, to dry.
