LEFT Chair Before Washing ~ RIGHT Chair After
So you have a piece or two of wicker and its gotten dirty and dusty and possibly midewy … you think ‘what to do’ …
|Tung Oil Finish|
Chair in Background has been brushed with Tung Oil
Another thing you can do to protect the wicker if you don’t want the oiled down look is to spray or brush on a Polycrylic or Polyurethane both of which come in several different clear finishes.

Don’t be afraid to wash that wicker and add a protective finish … doing so will make it last much much longer!
To keep that fresh clean look you can do several things.
