How to Successfully Clean a Wicker
Published on Sunday, 20 September 2009
Just the mere look at the holes and complicated overlapping on a wicker might already give you the reason to give up cleaning it. For sure, you have already imagined what effort and time you have to spend for cleaning it. Good thing, below are the strategies you can use to easily and mostly effortlessly clean any wicker in your house.
1. Examine the wicker for any loose weaves. These may only catch some fibers from the cleaning cloth, which will definitely make your cleaning job harder. You can glue some broken wood but doing this means you have to wait for some days before continuing the cleaning.
2. Regularly dust the wicker to avoid piling up of dirt. You may also use a damp cloth to remove some hard-headed dirt. Vacuuming can also help but too much vacuuming can already ruin the wicker.
3. For more challenging dirt, you can use a scrub brush or sponge partnered with a water-detergent solution.
4. Furniture wickers need more cleaning effort. Aside from the regular dusting and vacuuming, you should also clean the furniture's underneath with a rug or vacuum.
5. Repaint the wicker with a protective coating at least once a year. This product will help lengthen the wicker's life and will also make it look like brand new.
Don't stop yourself from enjoying the good looks of wicker products just because they are hard to clean. It can really be challenging but the finished product will surely be rewarding. More news
