Clean the dust and loose debris from the furniture using a soft brushed vacuum. Work along the grain to prevent any fraying of the weaves.

Using something like an old toothbrush, remove any dirt stuck in between the weaves.

Remove build up from the arms and heavy use areas with a cloth dampened with some soap and water. Use a damp cloth and clean out any soap.

Some wicker have wooden components, those elements will also require regular cleaning and polishing. You can also separately varnish and treat those elements alone.
