The development of the world of home design today not only pays attention to the beauty of the interior but also the outdoor design. Today’s various types of furniture are not only intended for interior design but also for outdoor.
If you want a terrace that is no less beautiful than the appearance in your home, then of course you have to use the best furniture for your terrace. Then what kind of furniture is suitable for outdoor furniture?
One type of furniture that is most widely used as outdoor furniture is teak furniture. Even though teak is known as one of the strongest and most durable types of furniture, of course this furniture still requires special care to maintain its beauty, especially if the teak furniture is used as outdoor furniture.
Teak furniture damage usually occurs due to the use of furniture that is not suitable for its function, placement & maintenance. So that your outdoor teak furniture can last a long time, let’s take a look at caring for the right teak furniture below.
To clean outdoor teak furniture, you need a vinegar and water mixture that you can make quickly and easily. Use a soft sponge or towel to scrub the surface of the furniture, do not use an iron brush because it can damage the teak surface. To make a cleaning fluid you only need to mix 1 cup of vinegar with 1 gallon of warm water.
Apply the cleaning liquid using a sponge or towel to the teak furniture and let it sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, rinse the furniture with clean water and let it dry on your lawn. This treatment should be done every 3-6 months.
However, if you haven’t done maintenance on your teak furniture for a long time, you will find that the above treatment methods are no longer useful. Although outdoor teak furniture is very durable, in the end its appearance will change over time. Teak furniture that used to look radiant and smooth will eventually become dull.
Some wood furniture lovers consider the characteristics of teak wood to be the beauty and charm of teak kyu, but if you want to refine its appearance, then you can use teak oil which you can find at hardware stores.
