At last! some much needed sunshine and warm weather. Are you enjoying this absolutely gorgeous spell, making the most of it and sitting / dining outside? If so, have you prepared your furniture?

Metal and plastic furnitures are easy. To get them ready is really just a matter of soap and water combined with a little elbow grease.

Wood furniture requires a little more effort but if you are canny, it can be just as easy, The first thing you need to consider is the type of wood and the condition. By this I mean if it is teak and has been allowed to weather to a silvery finish you are faced with two choices - if you like this finish, wipe with a damp cloth and leave it. If you don't kike the finish, you will need to sand it until ALL the silvery effect has been removed. Then polish with your Heritage Woodcare. If all the silvery effect has not been removed, what is left will turn black when polish is applied. Other woods can be just polished although you are better sanding any weathering.

To use your Heritage shake the bottle well, pour some into a container, soak any soft, clean cloth or duster in the polish,squeeze and wring the cloth out.until it is just damp and you are ready. (return the un-used polish to the bottle)

Heritage Woodcare is oil based – there is no need for waxing! It cleans, polishes and protects at the same time.

N.B. If the duster is not wrung enough, the furniture may be left slightly wet, in which case it should be buffed with a dry duster
