How to Clean Artificial Rattan Garden Furniture


Weatherproof Natural rattan furniture to a certain degree.

How to Weatherproof natural rattan using Yacht varnish.
  1. Clean the furniture by scouring in the crooks and crannies with a brush. Then use using the brush attachment on your vacuum to clean out the remaining debris.
  2.  Lightly smooth down with a fine grain sandpaper, the rougher surface will allow the varnish to sit better.
  3. Give it 3 coats of a clear yacht varnish, like this one from screw fix. Allow to dry thoroughly before use.

As the furniture will be withstanding all weather conditions, we recommend you repeat this process every couple of years.

We recommend storing the furniture in a dry place in heavy shower, as the varnish will only protect against light showers. If you looking to keep your furniture out all year found with minimum care, we recommend to invest in a good quality set of low maintenance, all-weather synthetic rattan furniture.
