Clean garden furniture and maintain its shine

Why should you clean your garden furniture regularly? Quite simply, it is left outside and exposed to the elements for several months a year, which will inevitably leave a mark. Of course, factors such as the quality, structure and material of your garden furniture will play an important role in how weathered it becomes, but regular cleaning and care is always essential. 

For easy, frequent care, we recommend wiping the furniture down with a soft cloth from time to time. This will remove dust and other impurities that can damage the furniture surface if they remain on it for too long. However, a thorough annual cleaning of your garden furniture should be a firm part of your gardening calendar. We will show you the differences to bear in mind when it comes to cleaning garden furniture made of wood, metal and rattan.
