The importance of disinfecting your wicker furniture

Blog provided by Wicker Paradise

Now that the world has felt the effects of COVID-19, we’ve become more cognizant of the need for cleanliness and disinfecting often-used surfaces. However, the truth is that disinfecting furniture surfaces should have been a routine part of furniture cleaning and maintenance from the beginning. Here at Wicker Paradise, we have a passion for making sure wicker furniture is in the best shape so that it looks great and is healthy to display and use.

Usually, all you need to disinfect your wicker furniture is a solution made from water and a common household disinfectant substance such as bleach or ammonia. You can easily apply these solutions to furniture using a sponge or cloth or using a spray bottle. However, you must take care not to mix bleach and ammonia, since this mixture is toxic. Furthermore, you can also use germ-killing disinfectant wipes or sprays from companies such as Clorox and Lysol. If you own outdoor wicker furniture made of resin, you can also hose down your furniture 5 minutes after applying disinfectant to wash the chemicals from your furniture.

If you want to be sure the substance you’re using can fight against COVID-19, you can check the EPA’s list of disinfectant products that are effective against the coronavirus. Bleach is a safe bet since the CDC lists diluted bleach solutions as an effective germ killer for COVID-19. They recommend mixing 5 tablespoons of bleach per gallon of water or 4 tablespoons of bleach per quart of water to make your solution.
