How to Care Wood Furniture


Hello there! Are you a fan of the timeless look of wooden furniture? If so, you'll know that proper care is essential to keep it looking great for years to come. So let's dive into some tips on how to care for it.



1. DUSTING

First things first, let's talk about dusting. It's important to dust your wood furniture regularly to prevent the buildup of dirt and grime. A dry microfiber cloth is perfect for this task. Don't use any harsh chemicals or abrasive materials on your wood furniture, as this can cause damage. Instead, opt for a mild, non-toxic cleaner that won't damage the finish. A simple mixture of water and vinegar is an excellent natural option for cleaning and disinfecting your furniture.



2. POLISHING

Next, when it comes to polishing your wooden furniture, you don't need to use expensive store-bought products. A homemade polish made from a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice works wonders to restore shine and protect the wood from scratches. Plus, it smells heavenly! Don't overdo it with the polish, as this can cause buildup and make your furniture look dull.



3. CLEANING SPILLS

Now, let's talk about spills. Accidents happen, but if you spill something on your wood furniture, it's important to act quickly. Use a soft, dry cloth to blot up as much of the spill as possible. Avoid rubbing, as this can push the spill deeper into the wood. If the spill leaves a stain, try using a wood cleaner specifically designed for the type of wood your furniture is made from.



4. DENTS & SCRATCHES

If you've got any pesky scratches or dents in your furniture, don't fret! You can easily fix them with a little elbow grease and some wood filler. Simply fill the hole with wood filler, let it dry, and sand it down until it's smooth. Voila! Your furniture will look as good as new


5. SUNLIGHT

Another great way to protect your wooden furniture is to keep it out of direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause the wood to fade and even crack over time. So, if you're looking to keep your furniture looking great for years to come, keep it in a shaded area or invest in some curtains to block out the sun.



6. PROTECTIVE PADS

Last but not least, it's always a good idea to invest in some protective pads or chair leg protectors for the legs of your furniture. These pads will help prevent scratches on your floors and keep your furniture stable and level.
