Woven furniture can be left outside all year round and is able to withstand temperatures from -20°C to +55°C. It is important to use a non-foaming cleaner on woven furniture, as a foaming product will leave residues in the gaps in between the weave which will then attract dirtWe recommend that woven furniture is regularly cleaned using Gloster's Sling & Woven Cleaner.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is a generally resistant to corrosion but may develop brown spots over time especially if you live in a coastal area. They are purely superficial and do not affect the integrity of the stainless steel, and only require cleaning to restore it to its original appearance.

A Scotchbrite pad is included with all Gloster products which can be used to gently clean of spots. If there is a build up Gloster's Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polisher will be required.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a very popular finish because it has a modern look, while being durable and weather resistant. Powder coated furniture usually only require a regular wipe down with a wet microfiber cloth and some mild detergent. Don’t be too rough on your furniture to avoid causing dents, which can damage the water proof finish.

Upholstery Cushions

The upholstered cushions for the relaxing and dining collections featured on our pages are made from Sunbrella fabric, the worlds leading outdoor fabric. One of the best ways to keep Sunbrella fabrics looking good and to delay deep or vigorous cleanings is to properly maintain the fabrics. This can be accomplished by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabrics, wiping up spills as soon as they occur or spot cleaning soon after stains occur. However please take care if considering machine washing as this may deplete the fire retardant chemicals in the fabric. We advise that cushions are hand washed following the instructions.

Ceramic table tops usually only require a regular wipe down with a microfibre cloth. Combat light stains with water and dishwashing detergent. Use a dab of concentrated detergent for tougher stains.
