How to clean wicker?

Often used outdoors and on screened-in porches, wicker furniture is a lot more delicate than other common outdoor furniture, especially when exposed to the elements like this is the case here in South Africa.

Wicker is an outdoor decorating staple, but over time it’s bound to show dirt and dust (and maybe even a little mildew). That’s OK, because it’s totally washable.

Use the vacuum’s crevice attachment to dislodge leaves and bugs from the cracks. (A paintbrush works well, too, says Cobb.) Next, wet a microfiber cloth with all-purpose cleaner and glide it over the wicker. Rinse with a damp sponge. Dry with a cloth to prevent mildew.
