One of one of the biggest misconceptions about rattan and wicker furniture is that they are both materials. That is only half true: While wicker furniture pieces may made from rattan
Wicker patio furniture tends to be durable and resilient but does require some regular cleaning and overall care to look its best. Both natural and synthetic (resin) wicker will last longer if it has kept out of direct sunlight. Cleaning either type is the best way to keep it looking good, but cleaning methods vary somewhat for natural and resin materials.
Cleaning Wicker Furniture
Vacuum wicker regularly, using a brush attachment to remove dust from the crevices. If it is heavily soiled and vacuuming is not enough, spot-clean the wicker with a solution of mild dish detergent and warm water, using a sponge or an old toothbrush. Rinse with a clean, damp sponge or rag. Allow the furniture to dry completely before using it. Never sit on damp wicker furniture because putting any weight on it could cause it to sag. Also, failing to let the material dry completely can promote mildew growth.
Caring for Wicker Furniture
The best way to care for resin wicker patio furniture is to keep it clean and dry. Vacuum it periodically with a brush attachment to remove dust and pollen, as needed. Keeping wicker clean extends its life because dust and other organic material can easily collect in the crevices of the weave and cause mildew, which leads to a breakdown of fiber and eventual decay (of resin wicker). For the same reason, it is also important to clean up spills and stains as quickly as possible.
Most wicker patio furniture used outdoors year-round; it can become brittle in very cold weather and more elastic when it is very hot. As a result, using the wicker furniture during very cold or hot weather can lead to premature wear.
All wicker patio furniture will last longer and retain its color best if it used under a patio roof. Sunlight can damage wicker fibers and cause unraveling or cracking, and it is hard on paint.
You can extend its life by covering it or moving it to a more protected spot during wet weather and when the temperature is very hot or very cold.
Finally, inspect the weave of the wicker occasionally to make sure it is tight and does not show wide gaps due to shifting. If you find evidence of shifting, simply move the weave back into place with your fingers.
