A lot of us have and cherish the wooden furniture that we have, or at least that which we have still been holding on to. While wood might be an impractical material for furniture due to its weight, no other man made material matches it in its charm and feel. Here are a few ways in which you can leave the wooden furniture shining for a long time to come:
- Treatment for Polished Wood
Polished wood is meant to be free from any marks or smudges that may spoil the glossy effect it’s meant to have. If you’d like to remove minor smudges like hand prints, sprinkle some corn starch over the affected area and rub with a soft cloth.
- Apply Wax to Make it Shine
Every wood requires a different kind of wax, which is available at your local home improvement store. Rubbing wax on to the wood gives it a glossy appearance that stays for a while and creates an elegant look for your furniture.
- Protection for Oiled Woods
As mentioned above, applying wax is a great technique for most types of woods. However, applying wax on oiled woods can eventually dry out the wood. For such wooden surfaces get the respective type of oil from your local home improvement store.
- Caring for Painted Furniture
Furniture that has been given a coat of paint adds an extra element of risk to the cleaning process. Such furniture should not be cleaned with wax or oil often. Applying hard wax once a year should do the trick. Frequent wiping with a damp cloth should help to keep this type of wood looking pleasant.
- The Good Old Water and Soap
If your furniture is fairly new or already has a very nice finishing, a classic mixture of soap and water should do the trick with a dry cloth.
