How to Prepare & Clean

Furniture

By preparing and cleaning your drab, grey garden furniture you can transform your garden into the perfect area to entertain during the summer months.

  • Remove excess dirt and soiling, large areas of algae, lichen, fungi or moss with a scraper or stiff brush, then sand and clean the surface. Bare or untreated wood should be pre-treated with an appropriate wood preserver to prevent rot and decay, such as Cuprinol Wood Preserver Clear.
  • Surfaces should be dry and free from dirt. Use Cuprinol Garden Furniture Cleaner or Wipes for best results. Cuprinol Garden Furniture Cleaner is also ideal for on-going maintenance during the spring and summer months.
  • Wood previously stained, painted or varnished should be stripped back to bare wood.

How to Protect & Revive

Revive your Garden Furniture with a naturally beautiful and hard-wearing finish on your old grey dining table or a colourful new look for that weathered garden bench.

  • Apply only in dry conditions, above 5°C and when bad weather is not forecast.
  • Try a test area first to ensure adequate adhesion.
