Rattan Chair Cushions – The summer evokes a feeling of rest and relaxation. In difficult economic times, people are looking for ways to find joy at home. One way to do this is to spend more time outdoors. But when you look out all you see is the old wicker furniture disappeared from yesteryear that does not look very attractive. In an afternoon, you can make your old wicker furniture look new again. Cleaning wicker cushions involve removing dirt and grime without submerging them in water. Removable cushion covers are easy to wash in the washer, but permanent covers require a cleaning method that prevents excessive use of water, which can lead to mold forming on the cushion.
The wicker itself requires regular cleaning and from time to time, once off with a sweep, but the rattan chair cushions require a moist cleaning to remove any stains or dirt embedded. Remove the cushions from the wicker furniture. Clean the dust on all sides of the cushions with a clean cloth. Fill a bucket with warm water and 1 tbsp. mild liquid detergent. For white cushions add bleach 1/4 cup water. Bleach bleaches the pads off or discolored and also kills mold or mildew on the fabric. If you have colored cushions with mold, add 1/4 cup all-fabric bleach to the water. Dip a sponge into the cleaning solution and squeeze out excess water. Clean the cushion with the sponge, removing dirt and grime. Scrub stains with a nylon sponge.
