Garden furniture lets you make the most of your outdoor space during the warm weather. However, if you’ve taken your benches, chairs and tables out of storage only to find that they’re grimy instead of glamorous, you’re probably wondering how to spruce them up.
Fortunately, with the following tips you can make light work of cleaning garden furniture – and get back to the important business of enjoying the summer as quickly as possible!
A major benefit of aluminium garden furniture is that you don’t need to worry about rust. Cleaning both coated and uncoated aluminium is straightforward, provided you avoid scratching the surface.
Iron garden furniture normally features a protective layer of paint. It needs to be cleaned with care or else the paint may chip, leading to rust.
Wooden garden furniture is prone to staining and patches of mildew. Its porous surface needs to be cleaned thoroughly and protected annually.
Top tip: the glass tops often found on wooden and metal patio tables can be revived with warm water and washing-up liquid. Remember to use glass cleaner to keep them shiny.
Plastic garden furniture is economical but soon looks dirty, especially if it’s white. Moreover, the grime can easily become ingrained. Thankfully, cleaning plastic is simple.
