Here's How:

  1. For general cleaning

    To do regular cleaning on your wrought iron furniture, wipe down with a clean rag and a mix of water and mild dish soap. This will do all of your general cleaning and won't damage the finish of your furniture.

    Use plastic covers for your wrought iron furniture to protect it from the elements, or bring your furniture inside to prevent rust stains.
