A white wicker furniture set can be a beautiful addition to your home, whether indoors or outdoors. It adds a classic charm that is sure to transform any room into a traditionally attractive space.
Nonetheless, it’s almost autumn, and with long-term use of white wicker furniture over the summer, it is inevitable that it will have accumulated some dust and dirt. It’s time to clean your white wicker furniture in time for fall.
The first thing that you have to do before cleaning white wicker furniture is to gather all of the materials that you will need, including warm water, a bucket, a soft cloth, gentle and environmentally friendly dish soap, and a garden hose if your wicker furniture is for outdoor use.
Once you have all the materials ready, you can now begin. Make sure to remove all cushions and covers first. Take the furniture outdoors, particularly in an area with ample amount of space. In a bucket filled with one gallon of water, mix some of the dish soap. Apply the mixture on a brush and gently scrub the surfaces of the furniture, paying special attention to spots where dirt is most concentrated.
Afterward, rinse the white wicker furniture with a garden hose. Make sure that the water pressure is set to low in order to avoid damage. Wipe the furniture clean with a soft cloth and allow it to dry thoroughly before placing the cushions back.
There are some important things that should be remembered when cleaning white wicker furniture. One of the most important is to use only natural cleaning products. This is not only eco-friendly, but will also make sure that it is not harsh on the furniture. Since it is white, if you use chemicals that are too strong, it can possibly lead into discoloration.
When the wicker furniture is wet, especially after cleaning, make sure to have it completely dried. If you accidentally spill liquid on it, make sure to wipe it off as soon as possible to avoid long-term damage.
