Outdoor Rattan Corner Sofa is furniture specially designed to be used in outdoor space. The quality which makes them the most favorable choice for the outdoor use is its resistance to the external environment such as variations in temperature as well as humidity. Below are some tips on how you can take good care of your garden furniture.
Timber furniture is hard-wearing, but if your outdoor setting is in full sun and rain, ensure it’s treated so it will repeal water. It’s recommended to oil some timber outdoor Inshare furniture twice a year. The oil protects the timber by reducing the damage caused by water and sunlight, preventing it from rotting – and it also makes it easier to clean.
HOW TO CLEAN TIMBER FURNITURE – dissolve mild soap, vinegar or detergent in water, and then dip a soft cloth in and wring out until it’s nearly dry. Wipe the furniture down with this cloth, and then dry immediately with another clean soft cloth to avoid water spots.
Mesh Garden Furniture Care
Clean the garden furniture with a cloth or sponge and mild washing-up liquid. Rinse any soap residue off and dry thoroughly. Applying a good quality, clear car wax once a year prolongs the life of your metal furniture.
Wicker Garden Furniture Care
Kettler uses synthetic wicker, a more durable material than natural wicker which requires less maintenance.
We recommend cleaning the furniture without the cushions at least once a year. Brush the furniture down to remove leaves and debris. Use warm, soapy water and a soft cloth to wipe dirt away. Rinse all soapy water off and leave to dry. For complete care use the Kettler Wicker cleaner and protector kit, made with innovative nano-technology and UV filter to prevent fading.
Aluminium & Textile Sling Care
Aluminium is weatherproof, therefore can be left outdoors all year round. It is known for being lightweight so it is recommended you store aluminium garden furniture in a covered area during the wet and windy winter months. To clean, use a damp cloth and warm, soapy water.
Textile Sling is durable and long-lasting. It can be easily cleaned with a cloth and warm, soapy water. Alternatively, for extra protection use the multi-surface cleaner, which is suitable for use on a variety of surfaces including stone, concrete, cast aluminium, polywood and polyethylene.
Cleaning Outdoor Plastic Furniture
Never use harsh or abrasive cleaners on plastic: chlorine and bleach may get rid of stains, but they can eat away at your furniture in the process. Abrasive cleaners are problematic as well, because they will scratch away the plastic, leaving unsightly marks and lead to more problems. If your furniture has lost its shine, try spraying it with WD-40 and wiping it dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Instead of using harsh cleaners, opt for a mild cleanser for your furniture. If you have colored plastic, you can use a mixture of 1 quart warm water with ¼ cup of vinegar. For white or very light-colored plastic furniture, try 1 gallon of warm water with 3 tablespoons of automatic dishwasher detergent. The dishwater detergent contains a very mild bleach which enables it to do a good job of removing stains.
Shaving cream can also work well to clean plastic: spray it on; let it set for a few minutes; scrub lightly with an old, soft toothbrush; then wipe off. If stains remain, you have two options: with a wet sponge, use white distilled vinegar or baking soda. After cleaning, you can apply a coat of automotive wax for added protection.
Cushions and Fabric Care
Most garden furniture comes with many options for cushions nowadays to increase the varieties of style and color in your garden. However, such cushions can easily attract a lot of dirt and general wear whilst outdoors.
During the summer, strong sunlight may cause these cushions to become prone to UV damage. Cotton and some yarn tends to hold its colour longer in the sunlight, so search for these materials if you want vibrant cushions throughout summer. Acrylic is also a notable material as it is mold-resistant, perfect for the outdoors.
Regular washing of outdoor cushions is necessary to keep them fresh. Dirt can become embedded in the fabric, so remember to always wash them on a high heat in order to remove all dirt and bacteria effectively (around 100°F). This should be done regularly, but especially before long term storage over the colder months.
