Rattan garden Outdoor Lounge Set is a light, durable furniture option which is made from the woven stems and cores of rattan lianas, or from various artificial materials woven in the same fashion. Follow this guide for everything on rattan furniture.
Outdoor furniture is a fantastic home accessory. Designed to make outside spaces more livable and comfortable, outdoor furniture brings the luxury and relaxation of the indoors outside. Like all things within the home, though, outdoor furniture requires some maintenance, and you’ll get more life out of your chaise lounges, outdoor sectionals, and dining sets if you care for them appropriately.
GENERAL rattan CLEANING
Remove any cushions and clean them separately, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, as proper care varies by fabric type.
Regular dusting with a soft cloth, microfiber duster, or feather duster helps keep any type of rattan looking great.
For heavier dust, use a small soft-bristled paintbrush; to remove dirt from those crevices where rattan meets the furniture frame, switch to an old toothbrush.
Regularly clean rattan furniture with the brush attachment of your vacuum, being sure to set the suction to its lowest level to avoid causing damage.
rattan pieces need a more thorough cleaning once or twice a year. Moisten a microfiber cloth or terry towel (or even a clean sock) with warm water, then gently rub the rattan surface, top and bottom.
For heavier dirt and stains, wipe with a cleaning cloth that’s been lightly moistened with warm water and mild soap; wipe again with plain water.
To eliminate mold and mildew, wipe with a mixture of 25% white vinegar and 75% water, then wipe again with plain water.
Before replacing the cushions, allow rattan to dry thoroughly in the sun; alternatively, use a hair dryer to hasten the process.
How to stain rattan furniture
Using a stain is one of the most popular methods of treating rattan garden furniture, and one of the easiest. Unless the instructions on the tin say otherwise, apply the stain directly with a thick brush, starting at the top and working downwards. Let the stain rest for the recommended period, then wipe the excess liquid off with a clean rag.
Liquid wax for outdoor rattan furniture
If your furniture is stained (and not painted), we recommend using liquid wax for outdoor rattan furniture. Just polish the furniture with a good brand of liquid wax once each year, according to the instructions on the bottle.
Weatherproofing rattan furniture
The best way of weatherproofing rattan furniture is probably to use a hardwood garden furniture treatment. The best way to treat wooden garden furniture, we find, is to apply 2-3 coats of a quality marine varnish either every year or every two years if you live in a reasonably mild climate.
