Posted on April 27th, 2020 10:54 AM in Tips & Ideas

Did you know that you could pass down your wood furniture through multiple generations if you follow proper care instructions? Even the highest wood quality furniture is susceptible to abrasions, scratches due to rough handling, and negligence. This applies to any piece of furniture or accessories that is constructed entirely or partially from wood. However, with some precautions and proper care, you can make your wood furniture last a lifetime – ornamental or simple, new or old -endure for generations to come. Here are some troubleshooting tips to take care of your wooden furniture:

1. Wood Furniture – To remove stains

  • Chalk white stains can be minimized or eliminated.
  • Apply toothpaste (not gel) with a clean cloth and rub gently on the back of the grain. Clean with a wet cloth, then dry.
  • If toothpaste does not work, gently rub this place with mineral spirits and #0000 steel wool.
  • Or, try tying the stain with a thick layer of petroleum jelly and leave it there for 48 hours.

2. To hide marks and scratches

  • Scratches and scars can also be molded in many ways.
  • Use wax polish. Since it is a thick liquid or a soft paste, protect the floor or carpet by dropping cloth in the case of a spray.
  • The wood filler also comes in different colors. Apply it with your finger, then wipe with a damp cloth.
  • Color wax fillers, the crayon-like sticks that are used to fill holes above the nails, will also scratch the furniture. Combine them with wood color.
  • A baby crayon, selected in a matching color, will also scratch. Soften the crayon with a hairdryer, then rub it on the scratch. Wipe as much as possible using a dry rag.
  • Fresh walnuts or pecan meat rubbed on shallow scraps in a light forest will disguise as a small scrape.

3. To remove Built-up polish

  • Layers of polish can reduce the finish of wood furniture.
  • To remove buildup, use a wooden cleaner – not a stripper – to regain original shine. Wooden cleaners combine a light solvent with oil to dissolve and lift buildup polish and dirt.
  • Use a commercial or make your own by mixing one-part vinegar or two parts of vegetable oil (olive or lemon oil) with lemon juice.
  • Apply it with a soft cloth and wipe it clean.

4. To remove the buildup of grease

  • Vegetable oil-based cleaners will dissolve the grease and accumulated soil on your wood without causing any harm.
  • Apply and wipe only with a clean cloth.
  • Repeat if necessary.
  • When the wood is clean, rinse it with a damp cloth, then wipe the dry cloth dry.

5. Wiping up spills

  • Clean it as soon as possible, especially acidic drinks (soft drinks or fruit juice) or alcohol.
  • Wipe with a clean cloth that is dry or slightly moist.
  • For sticky spots or dry residues, use a mild soap and water solution, but avoid removing wood.
  • Follow with a clean damp cloth and then wipe with a dry wood grain.
