Care for metal outdoor furniture (wrought iron outdoor furniture)

how to clean outdoor furniture

  • Use a mild oil-base soap, such as Murphy Oil Soap, mixed with warm water.
  • For a do-it-yourself cleaning solution, mix 1⁄4 cup ammonia, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, and 1 quart warm water.
  • Commercial wood cleaners are often the most effective, but be sure to read directions carefully. Wicker and painted woods might require diluting the solution.
  • For hard woods, consider annually sanding and applying a fresh coat of protective finish, such as oil, stain, or a polyurethane coating.
  • Hose down wicker every few weeks to prevent dirt buildup in crevices.
  • Regularly wiping down wood to remove dirt, debris, and excess water is the best way to protect it.

For plastics details

  • 1/2 cup washing soda mixed with 1 gallon warm water
  • 3 tablespoons automatic dishwasher detergent (contains mild bleaching agent) mixed with 1 gallon warm water
  • For colored plastic: 1⁄4 cup vinegar mixed with 1 quart warm water
  • For white plastic, avoid chlorine and bleach because they eat away at the material.
  • For stubborn stains, dampen a clean rag with white distilled vinegar and wipe down the piece.
  • Sprinkle baking soda on a wet sponge to create a mild abrasive that will peel away stains but won't scratch surfaces. (Don't use abrasive cleaners; they will scratch plastic.)
  • Use WD-40 to restore shine; spray onto plastic and wipe clean with a dry cloth.
  • After washing your plastic furniture, protect it with a coat of automotive paste wax.
