Cast iron handicraft is expensive in comparison to aluminum or plastic models, as cast iron handicraft lasts much longer. Most cast iron handicraft pieces are used on patios since they cannot blow over in heavy windstorms. Proper cleaning will help these pieces retain their durability and prevent rust, which can easily spread once is has taken hold.
Here is the way of routine cleaning:
Mix a solution containing 1/4 cup of mild detergent with 1 gallon of lukewarm water in a plastic cleaning bucket. Swish the solution with your hands to mix it thoroughly. Dampen a cleaning sponge in the cleaning solution and shake out the excess water. Wipe down the piece beginning at the top and working toward the bottom. Use an up and down motion to get in crevices and intricate detailing.
Rinse the piece with a second bucket of cool, clear water. Use a clean sponge that is very wet to make sure all the cleaning solution is wiped away from the piece. Finally dry your cast iron furniture with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel.
