Wicker furniture is easy to clean and will help it look great year after year. It can withstand certain degree of moisture stress without any serious yield or quality loss. The nice part about it is that it will resume its size and shape when it dries.

Naturally, indoor wicker furniture requires considerably less maintenance than its outdoor counterpart, but it'll still need the occasional dusting. Great tools to keep around for cleaning wicker include tooth brushes, vegetable brush, paint brush or similar implement.

Heat can dry out furniture and cause it to crack or flake. You can occasionally wipe it down with a damp sponge and this will help restore moisture.

Weekly or at least twice monthly dusting will help to keep wicker looking good and fairly dust-free. Vacuum wicker furniture regularly to draw out dust and pet hair, a soft-brush vacuum attachment is perfect for this task. Use a damp sponge and a little bit of mild detergent mixed with water to remove the stain or spill. After that wipe off with a soft damp cloth.

Perhaps once a year or every other year, raw wicker may need complete washing. Use a quick splash of water to rinse the piece.

If mildew and mold to appear, remove them using a water and mild bleach cleaning solution. Dry the outdoor wicker furniture immediately, because as noted earlier, repeated contact with water can cause damage. Once the furniture is completely dry, you can apply a coat of varnish to help protect the furniture.

If the finish on your wicker furniture needs refreshing, it is a good idea to paint it. If the wicker has been painted previously, you most probably will not be able to get it back to its unique color. Apply a liquid paint stripper to the piece of wicker furniture. Any stripper liquid can be used to soften the wicker. After the stripper has done it's work, scrub with a scrub brush.

Now you can paint the piece of furniture you wanted to repaint. You can paint it to match the décor of any room in your house.
