Caring for Your Woven Baskets: A Guide

At TraderBrock, we understand the importance of keeping your woven baskets in excellent condition. Follow these simple steps to clean and maintain your baskets, ensuring they remain beautiful and functional for years to come.

  1. Dusting:

        Regularly dust your woven baskets using a soft-bristle brush or a microfiber cloth. This will help remove any surface dirt and prevent dust from accumulating.


  2. Vacuuming:

        For a deeper clean, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. Gently vacuum the basket, being careful not to apply too much pressure, which could damage the fibers.


  3. Spot Cleaning:

        If you notice a small stain or spill, dampen a cloth or sponge with a mild detergent solution (a few drops of dish soap in water). Gently dab the affected area, being careful not to rub or scrub, as this can damage the fibers. Rinse the area by dabbing it with a cloth or sponge dampened with clean water, then gently pat dry with a clean towel.


  4. Drying:

        Ensure your woven baskets are completely dry after cleaning. To speed up the drying process, place the basket in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight or heat sources, which can cause the fibers to become brittle or discolored.


  5. Storage:

        When storing your baskets, avoid stacking them, as this can lead to distortion or damage. Instead, place them on a shelf or in a cupboard where they can maintain their shape and structure.


  6. Avoiding Extreme Conditions:

        Keep your woven baskets away from sources of excessive heat, humidity, or direct sunlight. These conditions can cause the fibers to expand, contract, or become discolored.

By following these care guidelines, you can ensure the longevity and beauty of your woven baskets. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the TraderBrock team.
