To repair scratch marks or abrasions on furniture fiber edges, briefly and carefully apply heat (e.g., the flame of a lighter) to the affected area and rub along the length of the fiber with hard cardboard to restore a smooth edge. Even if fibers are accidentally cut or broken, this method can generally lead to successful repairs.
Cleaning the furniture is straightforward:
- Remove cushions and pillows.
- Brush off surface dirt or debris using a semi-soft bristle brush.
- Wet the furniture and use a non-foaming cleaner like Simple Green or 303 Cleaner. Scrub with a non-abrasive sponge or car wash mitt.
- Work on small areas at a time to prevent the cleanser from drying in the sun.
- Rinse thoroughly and wipe off excessive water.
- Allow the furniture to air dry in the sun.
- Apply a protectant to the furniture annually.
NOTE: Use a non-foaming cleaner on slings to avoid residue buildup between the weave, which can attract dirt. It’s acceptable to use a pressure washer on a low setting for weave furniture.
