The origins of wicker furniture can be traced all the way back to the Egyptian Empire where furniture was made from the woven reeds and swamp grasses that grew along the Nile. While not one is sure Cleopatra ever lounged around on wicker patio furniture - or even had a patio for that matter - many homes enjoyed the timeless beauty of wicker patio furniture.
Detailed cleaning like this doesn’t need to be done all the time. For a quick sprucing up, you can give your outdoor furniture a light spray with the hose and dry with paper towels. This will eliminate any dust on the immediate surface and make furniture ready for any last minute or unexpected guests.
