Antique wooden items add beauty to the room. Even things like a basic wooden wardrobe will make your room look better. However, the task is to keep the furniture stain-free, dust-free, and shining. Cleaning it like you clean other things in your room will only spoil the texture and quality of your furniture. There are a number of easy ways in which you can keep your wooden furniture clean. Have a look at these methods.
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.
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.
Having a coffee stain or an ink mark on the wooden furniture is not a pleasant sight. The stain will spoil the beauty of the wooden furniture. You can follow these easy DIY steps to get rid of these stubborn stains. Mix one tablespoon of baking soda and an equal amount of water and make it into a thin paste. Now apply the paste on the stain and clean with a damp cloth. You will get a clean and shiny furniture surface.
