Tips for caring for a wooden beach basket
The materials of a beach basket are now designed so that the beach chairs are all quite easy to maintain. But wooden beach chairs in particular need a bit more intensive care compared to other models. Finally, especially with wood, e.g. quickly come to cracks due to moisture.
➤ Tip 1 - Protect the beach chair from the weather:
Probably the most important point in the care of a wooden beach basket is the protection from the weather. Only if you protect your beach chair always from rain, snow and other weather influences, you will enjoy it for a long time. Therefore, it is recommended that you always cover your beach chair when not in use with a protective cover. These are usually water-repellent and not only protect against the most diverse weather conditions, but also against dirt.
We can recommend for example the Strandkorb-Schutzhülle, which you can find on jago24.de. It is not only easy to attach with its zipper, it also provides better support with its elastic at the lower end and is also available in two colors and sizes. The choices are: 132 x 162 x 92 cm and 162 x 162 x 92 cm (WxHxD).
If your beach chair got wet, let it dry thoroughly before you cover it with the protective cover. Otherwise it can lead to mold growth.
➤ Tip 2 - Regularly impregnate wooden parts:
To avoid bright spots on the wood due to intense sunlight and changing weather conditions, you should regularly paint this with a wood preservation glaze and impregnate it. We can recommend, for example, the Xyladecor Holzschutzlasur 2in1, which you can buy cheap on amazon.de. Here it is not only available in different sizes, but also in many different colors. Here should be the right color for every beach chair.
With a beach chair made of teak, on the other hand, it is not necessary and also not sensible to paint it with a wood preservation glaze, because this wood has a high proportion of oil and is thus best impregnated against the weather. It only makes sense every now and then to apply some teak oil on the wood, to preserve the shine and the beautiful look of the wood. Otherwise, it could eventually happen that the wood gets a bit gray. Even such a product can be found at amazon.de.
➤ Tip 3 - Impregnate fabrics:
The cotton fabrics used in a beach chair are usually impregnated, lightweight awning fabrics. Over time, however, the impregnation can subside. If you notice this, you just need to pick up a waterproofing spray and spray the pads with it.
➤ Tip 4 - Clean fabrics:
If the upholstery or fabrics are slightly soiled, it is best to clean them with a mild soapy solution. On the other hand, if heavily soiled, oxygen-containing cleaning agents, such as e.g. Vanish Oxi Action are used. You can find out how to use this remedy correctly at vanish.de. If you can pull off the pillowcases thanks to the zipper, you can also clean them in the washing machine.
➤ Tip 5 - Hibernate the beach chair properly:
Just as you make all other garden furniture winterproof, you also need to prepare your beach chair for the cold season. Your beach chair can in winter in principle remain outdoors. But then you should put it on bricks or a Euro pallet. So make sure that the air can circulate under the protective cover.
On dry days, you should also remove the protective cover, so that any resulting condensation can dry off and no foxing forms. Even though the protective cover is breathable, you should still remove it occasionally so that the materials are properly ventilated.
