Are you spending time outdoors? Daydream, chit-chat, cat nap & savor delicious flavors. You don’t worry about your outdoor furniture quality because we have already done all the thinking & researching for you, from choosing sturdy materials to adding more protection against the elements. Just enjoy!
Easy-care furniture materials
Aluminum, plastic, plastic rattan and steel are maintenance-free outdoor furniture materials. Just make sure to keep the pieces neat with a mild soapy solution. Cover or store them away at the end of the season in a cool, dry and clean place like a garage, carport or basement — especially plastic & plastic rattan pieces that can crack in freezing temperatures
Care for outdoor umbrellas
Fold your umbrella when not in use. Umbrellas typically need thorough cleaning only once a year. Follow the wash label. We recommend protection from dirt, dust, pollen & rain with a TOSTERÖ cover and store in a cool, dry place inside. Ensure it’s dry before covering.
Care for summer gazebos
Always take off the gazebo roof in windy conditions or heavy rain. Clean regularly, outside & inside. Follow the wash label. Regularly re-stain a wooden gazebo frame to prevent cracks. A steel frame is more comfortable to care for with a mild soapy solution. Before storing, neat the fabric & let it dry thoroughly and store in a cool, dry place. IKEA storage bags or boxes can be used for the gazebo roof and curtains.
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 when not in use. All our wooden outdoor furniture is pre-treated with stain or paint. We recommend re-staining to avoid cracking & lengthen its lifetime. How often you re-stain is dependent on location, usage & exposure to the elements. For example, furniture in open-air needs re-staining when raindrops are absorbed instead of forming small beads if painted furniture begins to flake or keep an eye out for worn, repaint or touch up with paint for outside use.
Care for chair cushions and pads
To extend the life of your outside cushions and pads, clean them regularly. Store away when not being used, preferably in a cool, dry place inside. TOSTERÖ storage bags and box helps keep them in shape. Ensure the cushions are completely dry before closing the bag or box.
