Outdoor Rattan Set makes a stylish statement for both indoor and outdoor decor. The pieces are lightweight, durable, and eco-friendly. Rattan is a vine that is closely related to tropical palms. It grows into a cane that's one to three inches in diameter, which can be cut into lengths with a strong core and steamed to shape into curves. The outer skin of the vine is peeled off to create flexible lengths to bind Insahre furniture joints together.

Keep outdoor rattan set dry.

Despite its popularity for outdoor settings, natural wicker (woven from materials such as rattan, willow, cane and seagrass) doesn't do well with rain; too much moisture can weaken fibers, loosen joints, and lift paint. Keep these pieces under a covered porch—just not pushed up close to a wall, where humidity can get trapped.

Cleaning wicker and rattan furniture can be done in four easy steps:

Add a small amount of dish detergent to water.

Agitate the water until suds appear on the surface.

Skim off the suds and use them to wipe off the furniture without getting the fibers wet.

Wipe dry with a clean, dry towel.

For small cracks and holes in the weaving, you can use a toothbrush with the same “suds only” method to remove any mildew and buildup.

Your wicker and rattan furniture can also benefit from thorough cleaning once a year. This can help remove any major buildup and prevent further damage. To do this, scrub the surface with detergent and water and set outside as soon as possible to dry. Deep cleanings are recommended on especially sunny days so the furniture can properly dry. Alternatively, a hair dryer can be used to dry the wood, but this is not recommended. Once the fibers are completely dry, a coat of shellac or lacquer can be applied to seal the wood.

Mind the sun.

Even with regular care, outdoor furniture can look worn over time. Sunlight causes fading and cracking in natural wicker, so rotate chairs and tables occasionally to even out exposure. You can also dab a piece with lemon oil every few months to condition its fibers.

A regular clean keeps Rattan Lounge Set looking great and remaining strong; with these tips, you can handle the task with ease. If you require more information, then please feel free to contact Inshare Furniture(Zhejiang) Co., Ltd or visit our site: https://www.insharefurniture.com/
