Easy-care furniture materials
Aluminium, plastic, plastic rattan and steel are
maintenance-free outdoor furniture materials.
Just make sure to keep the pieces clean with a mild
soapy solution. Cover or store them away at the end of
the season in a cool, dry place like a garage, carport or
basement – especially plastic and plastic rattan pieces
that can crack in freezing temperatures.
Little-extra-care furniture materials
Acacia, eucalyptus and other solid woods usually require a little care from time to time. Clean with a mild
soapy solution, cover them when not in use and at the
season’s end, cover or store them away in a cool, dry
place indoors. All our wooden outdoor furniture is pretreated with stain or paint. We recommend re-staining
to prevent cracking and extend its lifetime. How often
you re-stain depends on location, usage and exposure to the elements. For example, furniture in open
air needs re-staining when rain drops are absorbed
instead of forming small beads. If painted furniture
begins to lake or look worn, repaint or touch up with
paint for outdoor use.
Care for parasols
Fold your parasol when not in use, so it will be sturdier
against wind. Parasols typically need a thorough cleaning only once a year. Follow the wash label. We recommend protection from dirt, dust, pollen and rain with
a cover like TOSTERÖ and storing it in a cool, dry place
indoors. Ensure it is completely dry before covering.
Care for gazebos
Always remove the gazebo roof in windy conditions or
heavy rain. Clean your gazebo regularly, both outside
and inside. Follow the wash label. Regularly re-stain a
wooden gazebo frame to prevent cracks. A steel frame
is easier to care for; simply clean with a mild soapy
solution. Before storing a gazebo at the season’s end,
clean the fabric and let it dry thoroughly. Store the
gazebo in a cool, dry place indoors. TOSTERÖ storage
bags or box can be used for the gazebo roof and curtains.
Care for cushions and pads
To extend the life of your outdoor cushions and pads,
clean them regularly. Follow the wash label. We recommend storing them away when not in use, preferably
in a cool, dry place indoors. TOSTERÖ storage bags and
box helps keep them in shape. Ensure the cushions are
completely dry before you close the bag or box.
