All-weather wicker is virtually maintenance-free but you should give it a good once over each year. Remove the cushions and inspect the piece. You can give it an overall cleaning with a garden sprayer or wash with soapy water and then spray down. If there are scratches or marks, you can use a mild abrasive to remove them.
Resin does not get hot when standing in the sun and is extremely resistant to chlorine and suntan oil making it a perfect material for pool furniture. With such life-long features, it is no wonder why people are getting sold on all-weather wicker. If you have not heard enough, the maintenance-free characteristic bears repeating. Outside of caring for and cleaning your all-weather wicker furniture with soap and warm water, you can sit back, relax and forget about it. And if by chance you get a tough stain requiring additional cleaning power, such as a bleach/water mixture or a power wash, you can do so without affecting the color of your furniture.
Keeping the furniture out of areas prone to cause mildew and direct sun along with covering the furniture or storing inside during winter months and unpleasant weather, will reduce the amount of cleaning and care the furniture requires. However, outdoor furniture is exposed to the elements and will likely need to be cleaned. Most of the time water and a very mild soap will take care of dirt and rain spots. Should your PVC wicker or poly resin furniture become stubbornly dirty and need to be cleaned more intensely, here are some helpful suggestions for cleaning it:
Spray the furniture with a hose using the "jet" setting on the hose attachment to remove excess dirt and grime. A product designed to clean boats, like Greezed Lightning, melts body oils and grime. Just be sure to do it outside and rinse well with water. Most general purpose cleaning sprays like 409, or Fantastic will do the trick too, however, it is important not to let them sit on the finish for more than a few minutes.
Mildew can be removed with a spray like Tilex, but be sure to wash clean immediately.
To get tree sap off your PVC furniture or Vinyl, try Goof Off (or a product similar to that), or WD40. Spray the product on the stain, rub, and wash with soap and water. If any stain remains, try scrubbing with non-gel toothpaste. If there is remaining concern about caring for your outdoor resin or PVC wicker furniture, contact the manufacturer for help in caring for the product properly. Most furniture does come with care instructions. Caring for your outdoor furniture properly will keep your outdoor living area looking and feeling clean and fresh for years to come
