Wicker patio furniture – The wicker comes from the wicker plant, which is a shrub or tree of the willow family that grows in places where there is high humidity, such as in the margins of lakes and rivers. Because its stem is thicker and firmer than its branches, it is a very versatile material, since it is possible to create very robust and firm furniture, but at the same time flexible when the stem and branches of the plant are mixed and twisted. This is why it is widely used to build garden furniture, although it should be said that both rattan furniture and wicker furniture, also serve both outdoor and indoor, but it is their resilience and nature that makes them perfect to endure the inclemency of time, that is why these materials are always associated with outdoor furniture.
Prepare a salt water solution that is composed of one liter of water and one tablespoon of salt and clean them frequently with a sponge; when it dries, you will see that the wicker patio furniture becomes whiter, more natural. There are also other specific chemicals to clean the wicker they sell in any drugstore like lemon oil.

If we have tired of the natural color of the wicker patio furniture, we can paint it with enamel paint to the water. This time, instead of choosing synthetic enamel solvent as in rattan, it is more advisable to resort to enamel to water because it is less aggressive, because it may be that when using a very strong paint we cut the wicker. To apply the enamel to the water we do it with a flat brush stretching the painting a lot, although we have to give several hands (which is the safest), between hand and hand let dry for at least 12 hours, and to reuse, let dry 24 hours since the last hand.
