Does My Natural Rattan Or Cane Conservatory Furniture Need Protecting With Varnish?
Keep conservatory furniture pristine for longer with a coat of varnish

Natural rattan and cane conservatory furniture does not usually need varnishing but after several years scuffs and scratches it can start to look a little tired. If the furniture is in a garden room which has a lot of plants and therefore high humidity, you can use a yacht varnish which is heavier duty.
- Clean the furniture first by scrubbing in the crevices with a soft brush then using the brush attachment on your vacuum to clean out all the dust.
- Give it a light sand down with a fine grain sandpaper, this gives a better surface to which the varnish can adhere.
- Give it 3 thin coats of a clear or coloured varnish.
Allow to dry thoroughly before use.
You may have to give the furniture a fresh coat of varnish every couple of years.
