While wicker patio furniture is light, colorful and allows air circulation, it is not naturally weatherproof. Rain, smoke, sand and dust can wear down its woven structure in just a few years without protection, making it shabby and unsafe to use. Here are some suggestions about effective weatherproofing methods for wicker patio furniture.
Clean Wicker Furniture Regularly
Use a portable vacuum or your large vacuum cleaner with the round bristle brush head attached to vacuum your wicker furniture. This will remove dust and food particles that can grind away at the wicker fibers, weakening them. At the end of summer, clean your wicker thoroughly with a solution of warm water and oil soap used to clean wood furniture and floors. Let it dry well before putting furniture away for the season.
