You can easily refresh your wooden outdoor furniture and make it more durable by restaining it on a regular basis, for example, once a year. You may need to re-stain the furniture more frequently, depending on the climate you live in and the furniture’s exposure to sun and rain. Re-staining prevents the surface from drying out and cracking and moisture from penetrating into the wood.
For furniture that stands in the open air, a good indication that you need to re-stain is if raindrops are absorbed directly into the wood and no longer form small beads on the surface.

How to re-stain:

Choose a place in the shade for cleaning, re-staining, and leaving the furniture to dry. Avoid direct sunlight.

  1. Wipe clean with a soft cloth dampened in water and a mild soapy solution, if necessary. Wipe dry with a clean and dry cloth. Use a soft brush to remove tougher stains. If necessary, sand the surface with fine-grade sandpaper. Be sure to sand it in the direction of the grain. Do not use steel wool or a brush with metal bristles – pieces of metal may become embedded in the wood and rust. If wood fibers rise after cleaning, sand the surface with fine-grade sandpaper.
  2. Shake the container well and apply a thin, even coat of stain to the furniture using a brush or sponge. Apply on the entire surface at once and in the direction of the grain.
  3. Water-based stain dries quickly so be sure to wipe off any excess with a dry cloth directly after application. Wash brushes and your hands with soap and water.
