How to keep your wooden wardrobes clean:

How to get rid of water stains?

When you place a hot or cold cup on your wooden furniture, it tends to leave a ring mark on it. That one ring can spoil the look of your entire furniture. There is an easy way to get rid of this stain. Just put some toothpaste (non-gel) on the stain and rub over the area with a soft piece of cloth. If the stain refuses to leave, then mix a small portion of baking soda with an equal portion of non-gel toothpaste. Now spread the paste over the stubborn stain and then wipe it off with a damp piece of cloth. Your furniture will look as good as a new piece.

How to get rid of old polish?

The polish on your wooden furniture will not look good if it has been there for ages. Your wooden piece will look better if you clean the worn-off polish. Put two tea bags into a boiling bowl of water. Once the water starts boiling, cool it down to room temperature. Now take a piece of cloth and dip it in the tea water which is kept ready. Pour the liquid on the worn-off polish and wash it off. Make sure you dry the furniture thoroughly. The tannic agent present in tea will leave your furniture with a shine.
