When it comes to stylish garden furniture, there’s no doubt that rattan is the leader of the pack. Rattan garden furniture is strong and durable but also lightweight, making it the perfect choice for tenacious yet practical outdoor furniture. What’s more, a high-quality rattan furniture can be left outside all year round, staying in great condition whatever the weather.
Here are Moda’s top tips on how to maintain your rattan garden furniture.
How to Clean Your Rattan Garden Furniture
Although rattan is extremely low maintenance, there will be times that you need to give it a quick clean – especially if you’ve got pets or little ones! Luckily, cleaning your rattan is simple. Before you get started, grab the following:
- A dishwashing detergent
- Water in a bowl
- Unused toothbrush
First things first, add several drops of detergent into the bowl of water, in order to form some bubbles on the surface. Then place a soft cloth into the bubbles, being sure to avoid the water. Next, wipe along the rattan with the bubble-covered cloth. Make sure your cloth isn’t too wet – it only needs slight moisture to allow you to clean the rattan.
If you have dirt within the cracks and indentations of the rattan, use the toothbrush to get to those hard to reach places. Again, only use the bubbles for moisture.
You can repeat this process as and when necessary, but giving your rattan furniture this treatment every week will help it stay in pristine condition. If you need to clean your scatter cushions, you can machine wash to get them back to their best.

UV & Weather Proof
One of the best things about rattan furniture is its ability to withstand all weather conditions. This means that come rain or shine, you can leave your furniture outside without having to worry. It also means that it’s fine to leave outside during winter. However, if you’ve left your furniture out during winter, you might want to give it a quick clean before the summer season.
