Why oh why don't I bring my wooden furniture inside for winter?!

It's all covered in greeny lichen stuff. I've had a go with a wire brush but doesn't get anywhere near clean. I'm not too bothered but wouldn't want green stuff on my clothes and it makes a crappy first impression.

I don't really want to spend loads of time on this as I am lazy and would rather be tending my veg patch.

Any cunning tips for things to splash on it to make a quick improvement for the summer?

Buy rattan furniture instead grin

Borrow a pressure washer (Karcher, or similar). DH blasts our teak table and chairs every spring, and it comes up beautifully.

YY on the karcher. Best purchase ever, so satisfying cleaning all the furniture and patio every spring.

I used this stuff www.homebase.co.uk/en/homebaseuk/cuprinol-garden-furniture-cleaner---500ml-275988 on ours last year before I oiled it and it came up great.

Oh I do have one! Hadn't thought of trying it! What's the best thing to paint on afterwards?

Oil it with teak oil or ceder oil depending on the wood.
