More effective than black soap, this technique works miracles and restores shine to your garden furniture

It’s time to bring out your garden furniture. but first of all, time for cleaning!

The arrival of sunny days is often synonymous with the first time out of the garden furniture. Before installing your garden furniture, some precautions are necessary. If you put it away in a hurry before winter, you will need to remember to clean it before you can use it. If your furniture is made of wood, it is often recommended to use black soap. It is indeed a very good cleaner and stain remover. The icing on the cake is that it is also a very good insect repellent. Another very effective product can be mixed with your black soap, often used in grandmother’s tricks.

For greater effectiveness, the expert in natural cleaning products Briochin advises adding one of these two products to your black soap: linseed oil or baking soda. In the first case, only a few drops are enough. Mix liquid black soap, water and a few drops of linseed oil in a basin. Dip a soft-bristled brush and scrub your furniture. Let your wooden table and chairs dry in the sun to prevent moisture stains from forming. The advantage of linseed oil: it will also nourish the wood and restore its shine.

The second expert solution is to make a simple multi-purpose cleaner by mixing 2 tablespoons of black soap and 4 teaspoons of baking soda in 1L of hot water. This mixture is ideal if your wooden furniture is very dirty. As before, rub this mixture on your furniture using a soft bristle brush, and rinse thoroughly before drying in the sun.

Finally, to prevent your furniture from getting dirty too quickly, the Briochin experts have also given us some additional advice. First, it is better to clean it regularly so that dirt does not build up and become too difficult to remove. On a daily basis, a damp cloth or a sponge will suffice. They will eliminate dust and ensure that it does not become encrusted.

Be careful, it is still better to take care after cleaning to completely dry your table after rinsing. Persistent humidity could damage it. This is why it is also recommended to store your furniture in a cool, dry and well-protected place at the end of the summer season. If you do not have a garden shed, garage or place protected from bad weather, opt for a protective cover and tilt the table to limit the presence of stagnant water. All these tips will extend the life of your wooden garden furniture.
