"Outdoor furniture is designed and built keeping in mind the extreme temperature and harsh environment of the outdoors. However, it also requires preventive care and maintenance.
1. Dust regularly with small brush or vacuum. Spills should be taken care of immediately before they harden or stain, by wiping with a sponge wrung from sudsy water.
2. Outdoor furniture can be cleaned using a hose or pressure washer, and must be washed and refinished periodically to keep it in top-notch condition.
3. Rattan furniture: Although rattan may be used outdoors, it’s best not to leave it in the sun or otherwise exposed to the elements. The material will break down much more quickly under these circumstances."
