In our last post, we were giving you tips on how to properly care for your outdoor wicker furniture. We discussed how the elements can ruin your patio furniture and that you need to clean up any spills right away before they do damage to your wicker furniture. Here are a few other tips concerning the care of your patio furniture.
While you might be tempted to just sit right down on your wicker chair or wicker sofa, direct pressure to wicker can cause sagging or perhaps even breakage. It is best if you invest in quality cushions before you just plop down on that wicker sofa. In addition, cushions are a great barrier that help protect your wicker furniture from spills and other damaging tragedies. So it is a good thing that most wicker furniture already comes with cushions.
It is important that you clean your outdoor wicker furniture on a regular basis. Use a dry cloth to dust away dirt and dust and use a brush to get in all those nooks and crannies. You can also find specialized wicker cleaning products at you local retail store.
When moving that wicker loveseat or wicker table, avoid sliding it across the patio. Dragging your outdoor wicker furniture is always a risky move. Even if your wicker furniture has rubber feet, it still best you pick it up when you move it.
Purchasing a fine set of outdoor wicker furniture is a great investment. To ensure you enjoy your wicker furniture for a long time, proper care is necessary.
