Even if you stored your lawn furniture away carefully at the end of last summer, it probably could use a little TLC as you gear up for a new season of picnics and patio fun.
u Strap or plastic wicker: Remove brittle plastic and weave on new vinyl strapping in a lattice pattern.
v Wrought iron: Scrub off any rust damage with a wire brush. Scuff up other areas by sanding lightly. Paint with rust-inhibiting primer, then repaint.
w Teak: If the wood is blotchy or black with mildew, scrub with a teak cleaner and a synthetic or brass pad. Rinse and let dry. Then apply teak oil if you want the wood to stay its natural color, or skip the oil if you want it to weather to a mellow gray.
