Safely Cleaning Wicker Patio Furniture
First step to safely cleaning your wicker patio furniture is removing any parts that are non-wicker. This would include any of the furniture cushions and decorative pillows you may have. We will cover how to clean those later.
For general cleaning, including indoor wicker furniture, light dusting with a microfiber cloth or duster will keep your furniture looking pristine. You can also use a soft paintbrush or tooth brush to get in-between the weaves of the wicker to remove any heavier dust or dirt build up that is stuck on.

After cleansing any surface level dirt and dust, an all-purpose outdoor cleaner will be your next step. This can be used all over the wicker, especially back into those woven spots where debris might get stuck. An easy and effective cleaner from Bob Villa is ¼ cup of liquid dish soap and two cups of warm water. You can wipe this mixture all over the wicker furniture with a sponge or rag and then rise away the soap. Add one cup of white vinegar to the mixture if you are needing to remove any mold or mildew.
The easiest way to clean your outdoor patio furniture will be to stay outside. You’ll be able to rinse off any soap using a garden hose and allow the furniture to dry naturally in the sun. Excess moisture or pooling water can damage the furniture over time, therefore be sure to clean up any large areas of water during the cleaning process with a towel.
How to Clean Patio Furniture Cushions
Cleaning your patio furniture cushions will be similar to cleaning any indoor upholstery or fabric you may have. Hand washing is recommended, using ¼ cup of mild soap per gallon of water. Clean your patio cushions using a soft sponge and soap solution, then let cushion air dry. You may remove the patio cushion cover in order to clean it, but not all wicker furniture is made the same and some cushions may not be able to zip off.
How to Clean Patio Tables and End Tables
Many synthetic wicker patio tables and end tables come with a tempered glass top. Having a glass top is a key feature on wicker furniture. The glass adds a nice, smooth surface for you to keep your snacks and refreshments. Without it, the slight unevenness of the wicker may cause for spilt liquids, which could be damaging if left untreated.
The best way to keep your wicker tables clean, is to follow the above steps. The glass top can be cleaned with any kind of simple glass cleaner, such as Windex. The top of the table might need to be cleaned more often than the rest of the patio furniture, as dust, pollen, and dirt will be easily visible against the glass.
