If your timber outdoor furniture is looking a little less than lovely, it may be time for a bit of TLC. Timber is a popular pick for outdoor furniture and entertaining spaces but it does require some upkeep. Plenty of us start out with good intentions but end up conveniently forgetting our poor old deck chairs until we realise just how weathered they’ve become.
Wind, rain and the harsh Aussie sun is all to blame for the quick weathering process that often befalls timber outdoor furniture. Fortunately, there is now an easy way to rejuvenate tired timber furniture and restore it to its former glory, no scrubbing brush required!

How to: rejuvenate tired timber furniture
Previously, the only way to rejuvenate tired timber furniture was with a scrubbing brush and plenty of elbow grease. Fortunately, there’s a nifty new product on the market that takes the effort out of cleaning up. Sikkens Cetol BL Garden Furniture Cleaner is a quick acting, no-drip gel formulation that draws out dirt, grime and the grey from weathered timber. With instant results, the gel leaves timber looking fresh and natural within 15-20 minutes of application, no scrubbing required!
When timber is dry and ready for a a new look, you can follow up with Sikkens Cetol BLX-Pro water-based finish which features a high quality, transparent finish that accentuates the natural characteristics and colour of the timber and can be re-coated within two hours compared to oil-based stains that need up to 24 hours. Available in five ready mixed stains, it will make anything old look new again.
