To polish wooden furniture, use 120 logs to remove the gray layer, removing the original color of the wood from underneath. Apply the stain (or paint) using an old cloth եք Allow it to dry for an hour, repeating if necessary. Once the stain is completely dry, which can take an hour or two, apply an outdoor sealant to protect it from the elements.
Loose cans can be a problem with woven fabric. “If a customer has invested in a better quality wicker furniture retailer, they can sometimes order additional materials that can then be woven into their existing space and secured,” said Brad Schweig, vice president of Sunnyland Outdoor Living in Dallas. Mass fibrous woven և resin items, though, he said, do not offer parts or materials, so he suggested this type of butter be glued in place if it was released.
In metal furniture – rust detector. “If you notice one, rub it with bare metal and paint it with steel wool,” said Mr. Bateman. But do not forget about spinners, wheels and hinges, said Mr. Schweig. “From time to time it is recommended to lubricate all moving parts to prolong life, to minimize creaking or noise,” he said. He recommends using WD-40 or “similar lubrication process” to move these parts smoothly.
Deeply cleaned pillows, frames: fabrics
Some outdoor pillows have zipper, removable covers that can be washed. Remove these protective covers և vacuum, or most can be thrown in the washing machine with a little colored bleach և then air dried. Foam inserts can be vacuumed or cleaned with a hose before air drying. Pillows without removable covers or cleaning pillows without removing the foam insert, Ms. Shughnes offers a solution of hot water, one or two tablespoons of liquid dish soap և a quarter cup of Borax.
“Thoroughly soak the pillows with a garden hose,” he said before using a nylon cleaning brush to apply the solution generously to the pads. Let the solution sit for 10 to 15 minutes, clean the spots to loosen, spray the pillows with a flexible garden spray nozzle, until the water is drained. Leave the pillows to dry for about four to 12 hours, depending on the weather. (Place them on the sides to dry faster). The fabrics, according to Ms. Hollier, also use “one ounce of prevention.” “Clean the dust every week so that the eggs are not processed or contaminated,” he said.
To clean wood, metal, and resin frames, Ms. Shughnesi was told to fill a large bucket of hot water with a quarter cup of dish soap. Clean the dirt with a cloth or soft brush. In stubborn areas where dirt does not rise easily, allow the soapy water to sit for a few minutes before cleaning. Wash off residual soap with clean water.
You can also make a more aggressive cleanser using one cup of bleach, one cup of water, one cup of laundry detergent. (Do not use it on metal as it may cause discoloration.) For wicker or resin, use a long, soft bristle brush, like an old toothbrush, to help dig up the rest.
