Rattan chargers will bring warm tones and a natural and earthy style to the table. They are perfect for outdoor parties or receptions, luaus, tiki bars and contemporary-themed restaurants. In addition to serving as an underliner, the wicker plate can be used to hold accessories, towels or other amenities. Rattan generally should not be washed in water. To clean your wicker charger, simply wipe down with a warm, sudsy cloth. Since a charger is not a food-contact surface, you can avoid using harsh chemical sanitizers like chlorine. Leaving wicker out in the sun will result in color change, so try to store your rattan chargers in a sheltered, dry place. After repeated use, the rattan will begin to change color slightly, but this is to be expected.
